Re: Disney to Acquire Lucasfilm
I said this in the Star Wars Episode 7 thread, but there's a brand-new article at the Official Star Wars Blog that reveals that plans to do the Sequel Trilogy have been 'in train' since the end of June, so this wasn't a decision that was made 'on-the-spot'. The announcement of Lucas selling Lucasfilm to the Disney Corporation happened to coincide with the official announcement of SW EP VII, but one didn't rise from the other.
