    A stunning 4.02 Billion Dollars paid by Disney for LucasFilm and the companies that they own like Skywalker Sound among others.

    Also talk that George Lucas will get half of that in cash. Insane!!!

    Star Wars VII to be released in 2014/5.

    Very interesting.

    Wonder how the new trilogy will be with Lucas out of the way.

    George Lucas wrote 9 stories originally. So the skeleton work of the story is already in place. They'll have to adjust it a bit of course to fit the reality of what they did with the first 6 movies but it's easier to carry on a story than to tell a back story.
