Disney Buys Lucasfilm and Announces a New Star Wars Trilogy

posted by Nell Minow

The Force is going to be a whole new generation.  Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion and has announced that it will produce a new Star Wars trilogy, with the first one coming out in 2015.  As all true fans know, George Lucas intended a nine-film series, so this may mean that his original outlines for chapters 7, 8, and 9 (or VII, VIII, and IX) are about to go into production.  There were a lot of jokes today about mixing in the Star Wars characters with the Muppets, Marvel, and Mickey Mouse.  But I am betting that Disney understands the value of the franchise well enough to make the next “Star Wars” more like the first “Pirates of the Caribbean” and less like “Tron: Legacy.”  Or Jar-Jar Binks.
