Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

The Hollywood Reporter just posted an article stating that, although Disney now owns Lucasfilm, they do not currently get the distribution rights to the Prequel Trilogy or Episodes V and VI; they won't acquire the distribution rights to those films until 2020, and won't ever acquire the distribution rights to Episode IV, which will remain with 20th Century FOX "in perpetuity".

This does seem to muddy the waters a bit regarding speculation that the Disney logo will appear at the start of future SW films, but I'd expect that somebody will 'give' and we'll see a resolution to this rather prickly situation at some point.
