In one of the biggest posts in the history of The Fandom, we are so excited to report that there WILL be Star Wars: Episode VII! One not-so-exciting part of the deal is that it won’t involve George Lucas, who sold Lucasfilm to Disney for $4 billion. Here are the details, courtesy of Collider.com:
Cue internet explosion. In a “holy shit” piece of news, Disney has purchased George Lucas’ Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion, and has earmarked a 2015 release date for Star Wars: Episode VII. Yes, you read that right. Not only will Disney be in command of the Star Wars empire, but a seventh entry in one of the most popular franchise of all time is in the works and set for release the same year as The Avengers 2 and Justice League.
I’m still in a fair amount of shock here, but with this move Disney has solidified its plans to take over the world as the company now houses Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. The new was announced by both companies, so this is no hoax. Hit the jump for more.
The story was confirmed by THR,
This falls under the category of… WHAT???????? Is this amazing news for Star Wars fans, are should fans be afraid Disney will ruin Lucas’ spectacular work? Sometimes more is less, but then, sometimes more is just a reason to be super excited!
Much more to come on this, you can be sure. Internet…go nuts!
