Disney is buying Lucasfilms for $4.5B, and has announced plans to release a 7th Star Wars movie in 2015. Good news?

I can't wait until Disney owns Apple. Tim Cook will be a Disney Princess.

I'm excited to see episode 7 but not excited that Disney bought it.

Why would they do that it would ruin the plot of the whole thing

I've never liked any of the Star Wars films. Disney buying it means nothing to me.

As long as its not an animated film.

Lucas was smart to dump the company before next year's tax hikes. Seems like liberals really don't want to pay taxes anymore than conservatives do.

Yes! Because I don't know if Lucasfilms would have ever carried on the Star Wars series. At least Disney is going to continue the movies and if the next three suck, we can just toss them aside and act like they never happened.

Lucas already ruined the franchise with those prequels, but I suspect Disney will concoct some new all time low for our beloved series.

Way overdone after the 4th one.

I was so disappointed when in heard this news. Star Wars was a huge part of my childhood and this might ruin it.

I'm gonna watch it, but it won't be as good as the other 6

11/01/12 2:59 pm

Woohoo, under the helm of Disney (a company with a recent history of producing half-baked sequels) we are going to see the further denigration of one of the most iconic trilogies of all time. I can't wait having to explain to my kids following episode 10 that the series was once the gold standard.

^Ooooooooh! Consider yourself pwn'd.^

You do realize Lucas did NOT direct The Empire Strikes back or Return of the Jedi... 2 of the most beloved of the whole franchise.

I don't like that Disney bought Star Wars, it should've stayed with LucasArts. And I would like to see another movie, but I have a feeling it's not going to be that great if George Lucas isn't directing it.

11/01/12 5:36 am

They dis the avengers really well and id rather have the next 3 movies then to never have them. I was sad when Lucas said he was done making the movies and im glad someone will finish them.

As long as they don't replace Yoda with Mickey Mouse it's gonna be good

10/31/12 9:49 pm

Disney version of Star Wars ?? Disney is obviously going to make it more towards the younger ages because that's Disney's main source of viewers!!! Isn't going to be the same

NOOOO!!! DISNEY WILL RUIN STAR WARS!!!! Just like how they sort of ruined Marvel :(

10/31/12 8:50 pm

I haven't seen #6 for a minute so idk how they could work that with the story. Hopefully that will be it then!

it should be really good they did The Avengers and that movie was the best I've seen since forever they will of course add their little Disney things that are little but I believe it wil be good

10/31/12 8:29 pm

All good things have to end. Disney needs to learn this.

Sounds great, but if Disney animates it I will personally take a lightsaber and cut every single one of them.

Disney did the avengers, and pistes of the carribean

10/31/12 6:31 pm

Disney isn't just Mickey Mouse, they've got a good track record of balancing market and artistic vision.
I'm actually looking forward to it.

Lets go Disney here we go Disney. I don't mind another Star Wars because I'm a realist and no matter how bad it is it won't affect me or the first three. If you worship everything Star Wars and this some how throws your game off then I guess it could affect you.

10/31/12 3:47 pm

In the words of Anakin shortly after becoming Darth Vader "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

10/31/12 2:52 pm

Disney will ruin it

10/31/12 2:21 pm

As long as they don't Disney-ify it. The last thing I want to see is darth vader singing

10/31/12 12:13 pm

Yes, unless they're as bad as the prequils

I'd see it. I've never really been a big fan of Star Wars but if it looks good, I'm down.

Even if it isn't very good I'd still like to see a new one, I love Star Wars

10/31/12 11:12 am

I'm not interested unless George Lucas is no longer involved. I swear he let his foster kids write those godawful prequels.

If its another "kid friendly" series I will shoot someone.

10/31/12 9:56 am

Oh god please no... That last 3 were bad enough.
