(On the lighter side!)
Disney will own LucasFilm Inc. My son thinks it's the "End of Days." Never really thought George L. would sell but it kinda makes sense. Jim Henson wanted the Muppets to be a part of Disney. Stan Lee & Marvel too as well as others.
Lots of questions though - especially how the new Star Wars "Episode 7" will flesh out - and #8 ; #9 etc. I'm for new actors playing the roles in the books that take place after Episode #6 "Return of the Jedi." That trilogy includes the "Admiral Thrawn" series (by Timothy Zahn) that takes place 0-5 years after #6. Kinda like a reboot of the movies in the sense of "Batman" - same characters but different actors. Hopefully Disney/LucasFilm will get a better director and writers so we don't suffer through what happenned in Episodes #1 & #2 (#3 was OK though).
