Disney has bought Star Wars. In a just-announced deal for $4 billion, the company picked up Lucasfilm, the production company that made The Biggest Cultural Thing In Modern Times. And along with that, Disney's making Star Wars: Episode VII, to be released in 2015, with another film to be released every two to three years after.
That's a lot to handle. The news is already proliferating, and people are wondering if this will be a piece of chocolate/peanut butter goodness or a complete wreck, even though there aren't a lot of details on what the film is going to look like yet. (Expect intense speculation on that soon.) George Lucas is staying on board as a "creative consult," but there's no telling how much sway he'll continue to have over his creation.
In case you forgot, Disney also owns Marvel Entertainment, the entertainment company behind the Marvel and Avengers movies. The possibilities are endless. For better or worse.
NO NO NO NO NO
Disney: 1 new movie franchise every 5 years. Between that? Crappy sequels. (I'll admit not all their sequels are terrible, pirates of the caribbean is pretty good). But who thought that continuing a story that ended 30 years ago would make people happy?
How is this science, exactly? And no, a reference to a sci-fi movie does not count as science.
Hey, at the very least they cannot do a worst job than Lucas did for the prequels.
What could possibly go wrong?
Star Wars vs X-Men anyone?
How about they go back and fix Episodes I-III first?
Craig answered I'm taken by surprise that a mom can get paid $8632 in a few weeks on the computer. have you read this page..http://nipp.me/d12
That spam is in every article. It's making me not want to keep reading.
I can't wait to not care.
You guys do not get it. First of all, George Lucas had made the scripts for these new three movies at least twenty five years ago. All Disney is doing is making them. Secondly, Y U HATE ON DISNEY? Disney has made a number of very good movies from pirate of the carribian to the Avengers.... So, as much as I liked lucas arts on its own, this should be a very interesting combination indeed.
This article should be in the Entertainment section and while it does come from science fiction sense, this article gives me nothing in that regard either, pltzzzzzz-zerbet!
