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

Yeah, franchises build uo excitement and awareness by spanning across in different media, so it would make perfect sense for there to be Star Wars in both movies and TV (and books and games).

But it's hitting the same niche audience/big budget prolem Star Trek on TV does. Animation is cheaper and makes more sense for space opera.

And it may be strange to call Star Wars a niche audience but a weekly series wouldn't have the same universal appeal as summer blockbusters every few years.

We may as well get that subforum going now because we have the first inside-source rumor to keep the fans riled up:

"It's an original story," a LucasFilm source tells me.
In other words, forget the Star Wars novels. Forget the graphic novels. Forget everything you think you know about what happens to Luke Skywalker. According to my sources, Episode 7 will literally be nothing you've ever seen or read before from the Star Wars universe.
