Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock.

I wonder how this will effect the long rumored and in development live action SW series. Perhaps they're taking that some of that material, whatever it is, and putting towards getting a new movie out by 2015, though really I think three years is plenty to time to make a Star Wars movie...even one from scratch. At any rate, I would imagine this has been in the works for some time and as such, some preliminary work on the movie could be done already. I of course don't mean they're shooting right now, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that a script has already been written or at the very least a screenwriter has been hired. Bottom line, I doubt they're getting started fresh today.

Aside from that, I wonder what will become of LucasArts and if they'll now be open or used for making games from a more wide spectrum of IP's owned by Disney.
