I\'m guessing this will be everywhere, but what the hell, just in case you\'ve not seen it.

Lucasfilm to join company\'s global portfolio of world class brands including Disney, ESPN, Pixar, Marvel and ABC.
STAR WARS: EPISODE 7 feature film targeted for release in 2015.
Personally, I think this is pretty good news, although I was worried when Disney took over Marvel, they\'ve shown that it\'s safe in their hands (how good was The Avengers movie?), and I think Star Wars will be safe too. I\'m actually really interested to see what happens next, the talk by George Lucas on this announcement of handing over treatments for Star Wars 7, 8 and 9, other movies, and working with the numerous books, etc, sounds pretty darn good to me (anyone fancy the Thrawn trilogy done as animated movies, the way DC has done Dark Knight Returns?).
