    Disney announced the acquisition of Lucasfilm, and the Star Wars franchise, for $4.05 BILLION in cash and stock. I was surprised to hear that George was the only shareholder for Lucasfilm.

    They also announced Star Wars Episodes 7, 8, and 9 will be coming out, starting in 2015.

    As a huge Star Wars fan, and a huge Disney fan, I'm excited, but somewhat nervous.

    Because that's just what we need, 3 movies of a Disney Princess dancing and singing love ballads with her anthropomorphic Lightsaber and blaster.

    To be fair, Disney can't do worse than midichlorians and Jar Jar Binks...
    Disney has done good things with Marvel...

    I'm actually kind of interested in seeing how they expand the series, if they'll go off the current series of novels written or go in a completely different direction.
