All that I care about is that the Star Wars legacy can actually go forward, Disney or not.

What is the story? I never read anything about what happens after part 6

I always heard rumors that Lucas had more of the story written but I doubt it. Ask Scrum.

They could go back in the Old Republic, they could do more Clone Wars stuff, they could do post RoJ... There's a ton of good books by Zahn and others they could base it on...

If Lucas had anything I'd scrap it... His writing sucks.

I freaked out when Disney bought Marvel and it ended up being much a do about nothing. All Disney did with Marvel was make them cancel all of their current cartoons and then make new ones to air on their networks. So the biggest news out of this is that the Clone Wars cartoon might be coming to an end. I guarantee that they won't be taking create control from George Lucas which is what most fans would want.

Except that they just announced that they will release a movie in 2015 and Lucas has said for years that he was done with movies... So why buy it if youre not gonna make the money back?
They ain't gonna make $4B back selling existing toys and videos...

I've never seen any of the Star Wars movies but I can guess when I do get around to watching them it'll have a mouse as the main character.

Looks like Lucas is giving up control and will only be on as a 'creative consultant'. Big potential.
