This is where I will expect the next SW animated series to end up. And I will guess it will be rendered at the Pixar renderfarm.
Ah yes the inevitable tie in cartoon series. The cartoon will most likely premiere after the 2015 movie

It's another "Avengers" franchise for Disney

good grief.

Oh, I have faith. But I saw Attack of the Clones. The odds of getting an A+ trilogy directed by Lucas himself are approximately 3,720 to 1.
Never tell me the odds!

It does seem to me as if people are equating this acquisition with a total shift in what the SW property is, which is just ridiculous. Pixar films didn't suddenly change when Disney officially purchased that company, so why would that happen with Lucasfilm and SW?
This is basically how I feel. Besides, Disney and Lucasfilm have already had a long relationship together before now, especially evident if you've ever been to Disney's Hollywood Studios in Disney World. Besides, if he has to hand over the torch to someone, I think Disney is the right choice.

Makes me wonder if they're going to do anything about the revisions to the OT, though. Hmmmm...

Lucas says he is passing over to them the story treatments for 7,8 and 9...
wow great find! uploaded by starwars on Oct.30, 2012.

start at 1:35
Lucas:
"I have story treatments of 7, 8, and 9 and a bunch of other movies...I sort of moved that treasure trove...to Kathy."


Kathy:
"(we are)...sitting down with a couple of writers and starting to discuss ideas of what those stories might be."

Since Lucas says in this video that he won't be doing anymore I think he will really have a backseat and approval of script and then it will really be out of his hands as an Executive Producer. Someone else will run the show during preproduction, production, and post production.

Does this mean that Disney will hire John Williams to compose the score of the next film? That would be most interesting.

What are the legalities if they do not hire John Williams but use some of his score & themes in writing the new score for the 2015 film?

So Lucas has given story treatments for 'a bunch of other movies' to Disney that he has had the ideas to do for decades too. I wonder what some of those are. Maybe other franchises?
The SW tv show.

Probably more ideas for IJ movies.

Guess the process for the SW movies will be like how he makes the TCW show with a protege doing all the work and Lucas doling out advice.

Either way, I guess now is a good time to be a SW fan.

We'll finally get to see the final trilogy.

Re: Disney to Acquire Lucasfilm

Looked for it and didn't see a post talking about it. The title of the other thread doesn't hint at a Disney connection. And seeing as the announcement was only made at 4:30 EDT this afternoon, so I hardly see how this post qualifies as "late" to anything.

Yep. Everything that was Lucasfilm's is now Disney's.

Yes since they own Lucasfilms.

In some good news, they also own Howard the Duck. Yeah Howard is finally back with Marvel. Could there be a Defenders movie in the planning.

At least this site is still up. The traffic related to the announcement crashed TFN.
