George Lucas Sells the Empire to Disney
The world of Show Biz was rocked yesterday with the announcement that Disney had purchased Lucasfilm.
George Lucas, Lucasfilm, sold his company to Disney for a mere $4 billion dollars.
Say that again? $4 BILLION!
Holy Darth Vader! Lucasfilm is the home of Stars Wars, so, now what? Mickey Mouse fights off evil-dooers with a light saber? Possibly.
After the sale announcement, Disney announced plans to release a new ‘Star Wars’ movie in 2015 which will not be written or directed by George Lucas. It will be an original script with George Lucas as a creative consultant, only.
Okay, you have to have some fun with this. So, fans have been creating awesome artwork. Afterall, there are Disney/Star Wars toys and theme park crossovers, in addition to the beloved ‘Star Tours’ ride, so check out the best Disney/Star Wars art the Web has to offer.
