Disney Buys Lucasfilm, Announces
New Star Wars Movie For 2015
Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 at 1:17pm

by Kevin Melrose
Movies

Less than three years after buying Marvel for $4 billion, The Walt Disney Company has announced it will acquire Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in cash and stock. With the news arrives word that a new Star Wars movie will be released in 2015.

Current Lucasfilm co-chair Kathleen Kennedy will become Lucasfilm president, reporting to Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn, and serve as brand manager for the Star Wars franchise. In addition she will serve as executive producer on new Star Wars feature films, including Star Wars Episode 7, “with more feature films expected to continue the Star Wars saga and grow the franchise well into the future.”

“For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” Lucas, who’ll continue as a creative consultant for the franchise, said in a statement. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products.”

Under the terms of the deal, Disney acquires full ownership of Lucasfilm, including its live-action film production, animation, visual effects and audio post-production.

Lucas founded Lucasfilm Ltd. in 1971 with the release of THX1138, followed four years later by by the creation of the pioneering special-effects company Industrial Light & Magic, Sprocket Systems (renamed Skywalker Sound in 1979) and Lucas Licensing. Those divisions were joined over the next three decades by Lucasfilm Games (later LucasArts), Lucas Online and Lucasfilm Animation

4:51PM EDT October 30. 2012 - Mickey Mouse can now feel the Force.

Disney (DIS) is buying Lucasfilm for $4 billion, adding the legendary Star Wars franchise to the entertainment giant's stable of characters. Lucasfilm is 100% owned by Founder George Lucas.

The buyout ranks among one of the largest ever made by Disney. It's fourth behind the $19.7 billion, $7.6 billion and $5.2 billion buyouts of Capital Cities/ABC in 1995, Pixar in 2006 and Fox Family in 2001, respectively, says S&P Capital IQ. It tops the $3.96 billion Disney paid for Marvel in August 2009.

Disney expects to more aggressively expand the Star Wars film schedule, Disney CEO Robert Iger said in a statement. Following the release of Episode 7 in 2015, "our long term plan is to release a new Star Wars feature film every two to three years," Iger said in the statement.

Based on Disney's closing price on Oct. 26, the deal is valued at roughly $4.1 billion. Disney will pay half the deal value in cash and issue 40 million shares of Disney to pay for the deal.

"For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next," said George Lucas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lucasfilm, in a statement. "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers."

Kathleen Kennedy, co-chairman of LucasFilm, will report to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn.

The latest part of the Star Wars saga, Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for a 2015 release.

Sighhhhhhhh

SW is over.

The SW legacy has been crippled by greed so significantly the past 20 years, it can't really get any worse than it already is.

You want them to wheel out Harrison Ford until he dies on screen? Let me guess, you want the Rocky franchise to continue as well.

I'd be fine with Indy V if it was just Ford and Spielberg, no aliens, LaDouche or Lucas anywhere near the film.

they can pull this off .. Look at Marvel.. but they have to know that getting a GREAT director on board is a must ..

Just in: Fanboys cry as Christopher Nolan rebuilds and discredits the storyline of the original star wars films.
