Disney Buys Lucasfilm

The court is still out on this one as to whether it will be a good thing or bad thing for the Star Wars universe, but I'm coming down on the side of the positive; even if I'm extremely wary of a new trilogy being hacked together in two years...

The Walt Disney Company has agreed to acquire Lucasfilm and is already planning "Star Wars: Episode VII", the first of a new trilogy, for release in 2015.
Under the deal, Disney will acquire ownership of Lucasfilm and its operating businesses in live action film production, consumer products, animation, visual effects, and audio post production.
This includes all its subsidiary offshoots beyond Lucasfilm Ltd. itself including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, and Skywalker Sound. Lucasfilm employees are expected to remain in their current locations.
