The word is that they'll make 7, 8, and 9 and other films as well!
Disney is paying $4.05 billion to buy Lucasfilm Ltd., the production company behind "Star Wars," from its chairman and founder, George Lucas. It's also making a seventh movie in the "Star Wars" series called "Episode 7," set for release in 2015, with plans to follow it with Episodes 8 and 9 and then one new movie every two or three years.
This was always Lucas's idea for the SW movies. More like James Bond movies and the movie serials of his youth rather than a complete saga with a beginning and an end.
