Disney to make new star wars movie

Lede:

Quote
A decade since George Lucas said "Star Wars" was finished on the big screen, a new trilogy under new ownership is destined for theaters after The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that it would buy Lucasfilm Ltd. from him for $4.05 billion.

The seventh movie, with a working title of "Episode 7," is set for release in 2015. Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The trilogy will continue the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond "Return of the Jedi," the third film released and the sixth in the saga. After that, Disney plans a new "Star Wars" movie every two or three years. Lucas will serve as creative consultant in the new movies.

At least Lucas didn't sell to some Mickey Mouse organisation.

I hope the new trilogy has a little bit more success than "John Carter"...

Watched John Carter about four months back. I enjoyed it. No idea why it did so badly.

I bet it was the title. The original name of that story is "The Princess of Mars" and with that name it should have been promoted. But who knows a guy named "John Carter"?

I really hope they do a good job with it; so much rich material in the Extended Universe.  But I think its going to turn into a Pirates of the Caribbean thing:  1 really good movie to please the fans then all downhill after that.
