    Disney buys Lucasfilm and Star Wars for $4 billion

    Kind of happy about this as maybe now we will get a Star Wars movie that isn't terrible or trying to cater to children.

    Walt Disney Co. has agreed to acquire Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in a surprise deal that gives the media giant control of the "Star Wars" franchise.

    Along with the purchase, Disney announced that it plans to release a seventh live-action "Star Wars" movie in 2015.

    Wait, how is this a good thing? =/ The Star Wars name will be milked in every way imaginable now. I have yet to watch 1,2,and 3 but I've seen 4,5,6. In my mind, I saw exactly what you posted..Mickey with a Light Saber. smh

    It hasn't been milked? They turned it into a cartoon for kids.

    Disney can bring in people with talent to write the script. Lucas peaked over two decades ago.

    Who cares if they merchandise it? Star Wars is on everything as is. What this means is we no longer have George Lucas messing with the films.

    Their will be a bunch of animated movies now. Usually I don't care who makes the movie as long as it's good.

    Further in the ground? Like surfacing in China? Click here to enlarge

    It can't get worse than Episode I and Jar-Jar Binks. If Disney learned from the mistakes which have been done in the past, then legendary the next trilogy will be. May the Force be with them!

    Disney will turn this into an even stupider series because it WILL cater to MORE children now, wtf are you saying 'not' cater to children... Hello, this is Disney, they make money by selling $#@! to kids.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    All we can do is hope Disney does this right. It could make them billions if they do it right.

    I honestly don't understand Lucas. He could have made more movies and been king of the world. They could only have gotten better. He's gonna make movies anyway. why not make movies the world wants to see?? I'm lost!

    Because he just doesn't have "IT" any longer. He's an old man.

    lol Awesome!

    Worst mistake besides Jar Jar Binks was casting Hayden Christensen for the role of Anakin. His dull and emotionless acting completely destroyed the new trilogy for me.

    Maybe the fault lies in this whole CGI stuff? How would Harrison Ford's acting have been like if he had been "running" in front of a green screen instead of running away from "real" stormtroopers on the Death Star?

    I think any action film nowadays is going to be a big stupid cartoon full of epileptic inducing CGI. I cant stand that $#@!. I feel like I'm gonna get an anyuerism watching the movie on big screen. Acting is sort of gone, there are still some good actors out there like in the new batman series etc...

    But honestly, I'm disappointed disney has star wars; now it seems more retarded than ever.

    The Walt Disney logo really doesn't look good next to the death star, I dunno maybe it's just me.

    Disney is honestly perfect for it. Lucas was slowly killing it.

    Dont get me wrong Lucas made the new star wars series retarded, but Disney will make it retarded in their own cartoon infused gay as $#@! mickey mouse way. Mark my words, it will be gay, very gay and you will see soon. The avengers might have been cool, but star wars will not be like the avengers, not cool, just gay.

    They just hired a really good writer. Disney has taken other franchises and made them awesome so I don't know what you mean. They do good work.

    I respectfully disagree.
    I won't say he has superior acting skills but I thought he show a lot of emotion. Remember, he was trying to set the stage for the transformation to Darth Vader. Vader was supposed to be cold and emotionless. Anakin was a flawed character. One who was studying to become a Jedi - all of whom were supposed to be without emotion - but he was full of sensation seeking emotion which turned to hate after his mother died.
    I think he did ok but definitely could have been better with more seasoning. Far from terrible though.

    I'm a little nervous about this. I'm excited about the prospect of episodes 7-9, but worried Disney is doing it. Yes, Marvel has had great success, but I think Disney has let Marvel do its own thing. Hiring Josh Weldon to do the Avengers was a great move. I'm a big of his from the Firefly series, although I never got into Buffy. I actually think he'd be a good director for Star Wars.

    If its going to be just from Disney without any outside talent, then I think we may have a John Carter 2-4. Click here to enlarge

    Disney is hiring outside talent, they already picked the writer.
