    I'd be really be excited if I cared about Star Wars. :coffee:

    Disney just bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion.

    Announcing the news, Disney also said it will release a new Star Wars movie in 2015.

    The movie is currently titled Star Wars: Episode 7.

    That means it will take place after Return Of The Jedi.

    From a press release: "Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for release in 2015, with more feature films expected to continue the Star Wars saga and grow the franchise well into the future."
    Traditionalists are going to scream in horror at this news, but there is a silver lining. The new films will not be produced by George Lucas – who lost his touch a long time ago.

    That is my favorite part of the article

    "Traditionalists are going to scream in horror at this news, but there is a silver lining. The new films will not be produced by George Lucas – who lost his touch a long time ago."

    I'm sure Disney will make a prequel to all the prequels, you'll see Luke Skywalker 20 years before he's actually alive!

    Probably gonna be horrible. But Lucas fucked it all up after Empire anyways. Was smart on his part to take the 4 billion.

    Redskins are worse. That's why Disney didn't buy them.
