The Future of Star Wars – George Lucas: “I get to be a fan now”

If you’ve not yet heard, Disney has bought Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion, and have announced the first trilogy of new Star Wars films will begin with Episode VII in 2015.  Along with the Star Wars franchise, Disney also owns the rights to Indiana Jones, Skywalker Sound, and Industrial Light and Magic.

Below is a video that features George Lucas and Bob Iger; Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Walt Disney Company

So for those that were fans of the prequel trilogy, might be able to breath a little easier, as it seems George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy have mapped out the future of Star Wars, along with story treatments for the new trilogy.

Below is another video of George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy discussing not only the purchase, but the franchise and the future of the franchise.
