George Lucas ‘ THE MAKER’ has sold out LucasFilm to Mickey Mouse for $4 Billion.
Not totally shocking that the sale was made to Disney given that Lucasfilm and Disney have had a relationship for nearly two decades.

The price – only $4 billion is a shocker. We have previously written that Star Wars was worth approx $30 billion over its lifespan so the $4billion figure sure seems cheap.

Aside from the ownership change though the bigger news is that


That’s right there is life after Anakin Skywalker’s death.

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. “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.”

I wonder what this means (if anything) for the EU vis a vis the novels and what canon they fit in; there is potential that maybe they’ll do what they ought to have done before and separate out the comics from the novels but there’s also the possibility that in a blatant cash grab Disney will start throwing out books with no continuity at all like I’m told the Star Trek novels are. In the end though aside from having no overarching storyline I suppose it couldn’t get any worse than it is now.
