Not a hoax or an imaginary tale! Disney has begun the process of purchasing Lucasfilm for $4 Billion.
Here are some candid reactions from the staff here at Mighty Ink:
“The next Kingdom Hearts game is gonna be freaking amazing.”- Archie Easter
“Holy SHITBALLS. Star Wars: Episode VII coming in 2015 and a new feature film every 2-3 years for the FORSEEABLE FUTURE. In other news, I need a clean pair of shorts.” – Ray Wegner
“I’m nearly in tears. I get to take my kids to see Star Wars in the theater!!!” – John Castro
This deal includes both the Star Wars & Indiana Jones franchises, not to mention the entire Skywalker sound library. The purchase even came with film treatment for Star Wars Episodes 7-9 which Disney is said to feel very confident about. Words almost cannot describe how amazing an announcement this is considering how Disney has handled Pixar & Marvel in recent years.
