Disney ha comprato la LucasFilm, la casa produttrice fondata da George Lucas, per oltre 4 miliardi di dollari e ha tutta l'intenzione di proseguire la saga degli Skywalker. Per il 2015 è infatti prevista l'uscita nelle sale del settimo episodio di Star Wars.
Il sogno impossibile infine si avvererà.
"For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next," said George Lucas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lucasfilm. "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I've always believed thatStar Warscould live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. 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. Disney's reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products."
