Good news for the Star Wars fans! The 7th episode of Star Wars franchise is being committed and announced during the official announcement of LucasFilm being acquired by Disney for a hefty $4.05 billions (in cash and stock). But the fans have to wait for awhile though as it was slated for 2015 release.
George Lucas, current CEO of Lucasfilm, the production company that brought us the popular Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, quoted as saying :
“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.”With this latest deal, followed by the previous acquisition of Pixar and Marvel, Disney sets to become an even bigger entertainment giant!
I personally view this as a positive move as it brought a new hope to keep these successful franchises alive and fresh! So, stay tuned for a bigger and hopefully better sequels!
As usual, fans are quick to react on such news, following are some funny photos/memes I've chanced upon in the online space:
