I know it's going to suck to pay Disney pricing for the home releases of any movies released under the new owners (Blu-ray or whatever future format will be available).
Amazon.com: Pirates of Caribbean 1-4 Blu-ray Quadrilogy (The Curse of Black Pearl / Dead Man's Chest / At World's End / On Stranger Tides): Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Chow Yun Fat, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush,
And don't worry. Their superhero Marvel films go down in value fast, too. All Blu-Rays are expensive at first. They go down after 2-3 months. Heck, they originally wanted 39 dollars for the Blu-Ray/DVD combo for the green lantern... that crap fest of a movie.

I'm still wondering what it's going to be like having different actors play Luke, Han, and Leia. It'll be like any other reboot, but it's just kind of different with Star Wars. You want those actors to just live on forever like they were in the movies, but they're all old now.
If you ignore importance, and just the amount of work he's done, you could argue he's more of a voice actor than a movie actor.
Everyone do realize that Disney just acquired LucasFILM, not LucasARTS altogether.
I don't think this is such a bad thing. Disney acquired Marvel fairly recently, and look what happened? The Avengers.
It's not like Disney has complete 100% control over them now. LucasFilm is still intact, just owned by a larger company now. George Lucas has said that they have been planning Episode VII for a couple of years, so I'm sure it won't be that bad.
Anyone consider Lucas may be selling Lucasfilm now because of some illness he wants to keep secret. Dark but it makes sense....
Cool!! I wanna see Star Wars Episode 7! And see if the characters either look similar, look somewhat like The Clone Wars series or a real action life (or computer animated) series of new Star Wars movies!
Btw they should call the next SW movie New Star Wars Episode 1!
I just read that Lucas is getting out of it because he has become everything he always tried to not become. He wants to get back to his roots. He was always proud of his independence from the film making machine, and he was always anti corporation running the film business. He said that he realizes that he has become nothing but the head of a big corporation, and that's what he always worked so hard to not be. He also talked about how he wants to give a lot of his earnings to charity.
I read that on a phone app, and I'm on my computer, so I can't give the link.
But I kind of wonder if Kathleen Kennedy will just do it herself, like George Lucas did. She has been pretty involved in the production of Star Wars for a long time.
Kathleen Kennedy has produced some major releases in her career. Pretty much anything Spielberg has done so I"m sure Star Wars is in safe hands. What makes me happy is that now I get to see the 7,8,9 movies that Lucas said back in the early 80's that he was going to make, and the icing on the cake, Lucas isn't writing or directing them.
I'm a HUGE Star Wars fan and I couldn't be happier to see more SW films coming, but as long as they are handled properly and from what I have seen with the Avengers/Thor/Cap America I got no worries that they will get the right people for the job.
I am really hoping for JJ Abrams. Lost and Fringe are both really good shows and Revolution is shaping up to be the same or maybe Christopher Nolan he would make Star Wars intense

this is awesome news! But i have to catch up on my Star Wars. (gasp) MARATHON!!!!!!
Now all I need is another few Harry Potter books/movies (JK Rowling, please do what Rick Riordan did, and make a spinoff series), and my life will be perfect.

Millions want more Star Wars books, and we keep getting them, From 5,000 years before the movies to long after Luke and the gang are dead. They keep releasing them and the masses keep eating them up
And lastly, ask a bunch of 8 year olds what they would rather watch or buy toys from. Harry Potter of Clone Wars? See my point?
And make no mistake, I truly believe Harry Potter has a HUGE place in history. And if JK allows it HP will live on for a LONG time. It simply can't comapre to SW IMO
Update: Screenwriter Michael Arndt confirmed to write 'Star Wars Episode VII' | Inside Movies | EW.com
This is how it works now:
- The Walt Disney Company
- Industrial Light & Magic - visual effects
- Skywalker Sound - post-production sound design
- LucasArts - video and computer games
- Lucas Licensing - licensing and merchandising
- Lucas Learning - educational materials
- Lucas Books - book publishing
- Lucasfilm Animation - animation
- Lucasfilm Animation Singapore - animation
- Lucas Marketing - marketing
- Lucas Online - websites
So yes, Walt Disney owns LucasArts

Disney. Bring back Rogue Squadron and Battlefront. For the kids. For the really old people who think they are still kids.
And obviously this is all speculation, if some people are having trouble with understanding that then sorry. A forum is all about sharing opinions and different views in a respectful manner. And I'm not saying you aren't, only that i feel perhaps some getting defensive when they shouldn't.
I'm wrong so often it doesn't even bother me anymore, lol. And the thing I love about forums is that everyone sees stuff differently. So cheers!
That said the point was among that age group (8ish) star wars trumps HP by a long shot. Who knows in ten years? If they release an animated HP series with 'the further adventures of HP and friends' then all bets are off, lol. That would be HUGE
