No link yet, but apparently a release is being sent out.
I can't wait to see the Star Wars geeks freak out about this. Han will never shoot first again!

Why would I freak out? George Lucas has been dead for 25 years.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
Holy cow - Star Wars Episode 7 in 2015
"The Walt Disney Company has acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in cash and stock and announced a new Star Wars movie to be released in 2015."

Here ya go...
Disney is buying up everything... They own ABC, ESPN, Pixar, Marvel and now Lucasfilm. I gotta give them credit they pretty much are viewed as a company with entertainment for kids and families but their latest purchases show they really want to own the entire market from little kids to teenagers and everything in between.
Well after Red Tails their stock couldn't get much lower.
the verge saying Lucas is getting almost 2 billion in cash and 40 million shares of disney stock. What. The. Fuck.
You ak lot of money when you destroy 2 beloved franchises.
Episode VII...The Search For More Money....There is unrest in the galaxy. It has been several years since a studio has tried to milk every last penny out of the Star Wars franchise....
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
Not just Episode 7, but a new one every 2-3 years. Disney is going to rape that corpse for all it has left.
And save your griping - you know you'll fork over your money to see them in the desperate but futile hope that they're somewhat decent.
This was inevitable. The franchise still makes ungodly money from dozens of income streams, its hugely popular with kids as well as some parents, and there have been about a hundred books written post movie 6 for source material. They could also just start over with a new story. It was only a matter of when. Too much money to simply stop the franchise.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
So now they can start off with Luke's kid after he tests really high for midi-chlorians and decides he should undergo jedi training. They take R2D2 and C3PO and zoom off to Yavin 2 where they come across Yub Yub which is a small furry creature that likes to dance and sing while eating Yubby Gummies to make them smart and enhance their ability to use the force. Amazingly Luke discovers that the force is also strong with Yub Yub and his kid and Yub Yub and the force have a synergistic affect. Together they can dance, sing songs, eat Yubby Gummies, and play while levitating objects and swinging light sabers.
This preview brought to you by Mattel, Hasbro, Nestle, and Disney on DVD (reserve your copy today), and don't forget the Super Jedi Yub Yub Ride opening at Disney World this Christmas.
I kinda wonder what George Lucas is going to do with $2 billion.
Don't like it, don't see it.
Build a Deathstar.
Your DVD comment at the end made me wonder if the Star Wars films are going to go in the Disney Vault! Oh no!
As far as ep 7-10 Lucas has always said he wanted to do them, hell the books are already out. Maybe with Lucas not being directly involved they won't suck major ass.
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
Mara Jade better be hot. And Grand Admiral Thrawn was an awesome villain.
There is no way this could possibly be out by 2015 unless it is horribly rushed and awful.
This project will go through about 25 scripts, about 8 different screenwriters, plus casting would take forever. Shooting and editing would take...more than forever.
I never liked how Thrawn went out though, seemed anti-climactic
Hush. No spoilers haha.
Tune into the Disney Channel if you want to see the candidates for the roles. You can bet the main characters will sing pop songs on the soundtrack.
Just keep Duel of the Fates for the new Star Wars and I won't care about anything else they do.
I own Disney stick dammit.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
Ep 7 to be directed by Michael Bay
I almost said that as a joke to tweak Star Wars purists when I started the thread. I had only seen a blurb that said they were buying Lucasfilm and the price.
The meltdowns after these will be epic, as those that were kids in the late 70s/80s, and those that were kids in the late 90s/00s, unite together to complain about how the new movies suck ass compared to the ones that came out when they were kids.
I really like the Star Wars movies, but I could care less if Han shot first or if Anakin sucks as an actor.
He looks like a chomo... Trip to Thailand ?
