LUCAS SELLS STAR WARS TO DISNEY
In what seems like a momentous (and fitting) decision, it has been officially announced that Lucasfilm has been acquired by Disney. At a whopping $4.05 Billion USD the Star Wars franchise and more are now under the mouse umbrella. Considering the success that Disney's had with Pixar and Marvel, this is probably a good thing for Lucas' intellectual property. Here's a sit-down interview with the mogul and the new president of Lucasfilm under Disney, Kathleen Kennedy. The two describe how the change will affect the Star Wars universe. Nuts! Check out the official press release of the entire deal here.
