As for future Star Wars projects, I don't care about them but the PT sets the bar pretty low. All I'm interested in is what this means for giving the 1977 and 1980 movies a proper home video treatment, and really Disney's attitude on that can't be worse than GL's. Seems a positive development to me.

"This has been in the works for a long time with investors" - CBC windbag, O'Leary on the merger. Interesting.

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

The most important question I have is this.

What will be released first on home video? Song of the South? Or the Star Wars Holiday Special?

Have you been watching any of the news about it? I don't know that I'd say that.

Besides this News story will be repalced by something else in a day or two's time.
I'm sure it will be. But that wasn't what I was saying. I said it'll be a shitty thing that most of the nerds on the internet will be more concerned with this news than anything having to do with Sandy - there's a difference.

Population of Earth over 7 Billion. Sure people in the storm area will have suffered damage and will have repercussions but that's not the same as saying most people.

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

Some more info on io9 (which is using a substitute site while repairing hurricane damage, so this link may be temporary):
  • Along with Lucasfilm, Disney has purchased an extensive treatment for the brand NEW Star Wars trilogy. Episode VII is in “early development” but we’re guessing the groundwork is already being planned.
  • George Lucas is a consultant on Episode VII but his intent is to retire.
  • Disney plans on utilizing Star Wars in parks, resorts, television and film. But we’re not expecting a live action TV show just yet. ...
  • What about Indiana Jones? Well, Dr. Jones is still a part of the overall purchase package — but Paramount still owns the distribution rights to the films. So don’t hold your breath for a Disney Indy movie just yet.
So there's already a treatment for the whole new trilogy. I wonder how long Lucas has been sitting on it, or alternatively, how much he's revised it over the past 30 years.

Of course, the best possible news is that Lucas is going to retire and not write or direct the new films.

I wonder if they will (eventually) pull the comics license from Dark Horse?
Uncertain, the future is.

But for now, Dark Horse still has the license for the forseeable (or "near") future.

Hmmm, what about The Clone Wars? Will Cartoon Network keep the rights to air it?
