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?

They give credit where it's due


"Music by James Horner"

"Original theme composed by John Williams"
Exactly, its no big deal in that respect. There's plenty of sequels to his films using his themes.

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.
He's referring to this thread, which was posted two hours before yours:

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

What exactly is the specific fear of Disney owning Star Wars?

I know what Stockholm Syndrome is, but, I don't get what you'e saying?

I disagree. Your childhood just became more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

On the upside, this opens the possibility of finally seeing the theatrical versions of the OT restored and released. Disney must know there's a market out there for it and they don't have the personal stake in keeping them locked away that Lucas does. Wouldn't that be a treat.
No, Disney will just put the movies into "the vault" and only release them for sale every 5 to 10 years.
IF then. Disney has a bad habit of not following through on DVD releases as it is. Anyone who has followed the struggles of fans of 90s Disney shows (Gargoyles, etc) to get the last parts of the series released knows this all too well.

Star Wars just became JAFDF (Just Another Frakking Disney Franchise), there to be milked by the Mouse for income streams.

Fans of the tie-in material should be doubly worried because Disney is notorious for not caring about tie-ins. Anybody remember when Marvel was a COMIC company that cared about it's core product? There are persistent rumors, for example, that Marvel's comics division is a hair's-bredth away from being shut down, now that the Mouse is in charge.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

It'd be great if we still got the live action "Underworld" TV series to fill in some of the 20-year gap between Episodes III and IV and at the same time saw the distant future post-JEDI in Episode VII. Lucas and his people could touch on two different periods in galactic history at the same moment and flesh out the two eras SW fans want to know the most about.

Interesting. Harry Knowles of AICN has been insisting for a couple years now that people at LucasFilm flat out told him there have been sequel trilogy plans for a while, but standard operation procedure was to deny publicly their existence until it was time to roll with them.
Dude, there were rumored plans for the final trilogy going back all the way to the birth of Star Wars. Those of us old enough to remember that far back know this. The most prevelant rumor was that the core of the first big EU trilogy (the so-called "Thrawn Trilogy") lifted big-time from the story ideas for 7-9.

Erhm,
Mary Poppins, A Bugs Life, Toy Story, Aladdin, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Pirates of the Carribean, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Avengers not good enough for you?
Of course, those films are all generally kids movies.

Wow!


I view this as (potentially) fantastic news. It's not like the franchise could get more childish and kiddie-kiddie. The prequel trilogy meandered back and forth from mediocre to awful.


If the original trilogy is re-released (not the Special Editions) then that will be worth it all by itself.


Release the Originals!!!/nerdvoice

there is another thread with almost 200 replies already covering not just the next feature film (2015 tentative) but the business aspect of the Disney acquisition.
