1 link is the press release from disney, the other link is disney and george lucas talking about retiring and passing the franchise to a company he trusts so he can retire and focus on other projects, and in the final 30 seconds you actually get to see the deal done, when george lucas gives ownership to disney which was kinda interesting.
so theres 3 new star wars movies coming, starting in 2015, with episode 7, followed by 8 and 9 every 2 years after.
I am a mild star wars fan, but I loved knowing 2 things, more star wars movies, no george lucas with "medaclorians, manakin skywalker, sissy darth vader and jar jar".
so theres hope for something better then remakes, and special edition blue rays.
now if only they would make more matrix movies, life would be complete.
