Here is a break from Election News:

Disney buying Lucasfilm for $4 billion

Disney is buying Lucasfilm for $4 billion, adding the legendary Star Wars franchise to the entertainment giant's stable of characters. Lucasfilm is 100% owned by Founder George Lucas.

The buyout ranks among one of the largest ever made by Disney. It's fourth behind the $19.7 billion, $7.6 billion and $5.2 billion buyouts of Capital Cities/ABC in 1995, Pixar in 2006 and Fox Family in 2001, respectively, says S&P Capital IQ. It tops the $3.96 billion Disney paid for Marvel in August 2009.
...
The latest part of the Star Wars saga, Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for a 2015 release.

You know you will. A bunch of friends will be excited and invite you, and you'll end up seeing it. Or someone will tell you it isn't that bad and you'll watch it. Or you'll be drawn by morbid curiosity. Or they'll get Christopher Nolan to direct it and you'll be intigued by the reviews that refuse to reveal any of the twists, except to hint that Michael Caine might play C3-PO.

I dunno if it's been ripped out of lucas' clutches it might be ok. My understanding was that part of the rason the last 3 were so bad was lucas wasn't as limited as he was with the first three. With money and power he was able to make as much a hash of it as he liked.
