Disney to Buy Lucasfilm for $4.05 Billion; New ‘Star Wars’ Movie Set for 2015

A Disneyfied “Star Wars?” Why do I have this image of a musical number with JarJar Binks?

But then Disney owns “The Avengers” and that certainly wasn’t a disaster, so…

And there’s THIS:

With this many characters to develop and stories to tell, Disney plans to release a new Star Wars feature film every two or three years for the foreseeable future.

Had Star Wars films been produced at a rate of one every 2.5 years after Jedi, there’d be 14 or 15 movies by now.

    Let’s find out if the sales contract forbids the one thing I think it’ll forbid, namely a DVD/Blu-Ray of the theatrical release of Episode 4 in a remastered proper transfer.

    When I left the first one, in 1977, I said that a sequel was possible but the movie would stand alone without anything added. We’re gonna see that mouse in the clouds. Bambi is going to appear as one of the good guys.

    Apparently Industrial Light and Magic (Lucas’ special effects studio) is included in the deal. Interesting that Pixar, which was once a division of ILM, and where the Knoll brothers wrote the first version of Photoshop, and where EditDroid (the first version of the Avid products) was born, will now all be together again under one roof.

    Now for Snow White in the Slave-Leia metal bikini saying “these aren’t the Dwarves you’re looking for.”
