Well, you probably already heard the news, but just in case you haven’t been on the internet today, Disney bought Lucasfilm for 4 billion dollars, according to USA Today:
The buyout ranks among one of the largest ever made by Disney. It’s fourth behind the $19.7 billion, $7.6 billion and $5.2 billion buyouts of Capital Cities/ABC in 1995, Pixar in 2006 and Fox Family in 2001, respectively, says S&P Capital IQ. It tops the $3.96 billion Disney paid for Marvel in August 2009.
It has also been confirmed that Disney plans to make more Star Wars films, with the latest due in 2015.
So, dear readers, what do you think? Are you at all concerned by this, or do you think Disney actually has what it takes to make a good Star Wars film?
