Disney bought LucasFilm and planned a new Star Wars VII

Disney has bought Lucasfilm Ltd. from filmmaker George Lucas for $4.05 billion a few days ago, half in cash, and half in newly issued stock. The deal includes Lucasfilm’s production companies, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound, and also rights to the Indiana Jones franchise.

The company is now working on another trilogy in the Star Wars Saga.

The first film, Star Wars VII, is expected for 2015, and will be followed by two more. The storyline will pick up after Return of the Jedi, following the journeys of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia. Disney plans to follow that with a new Star Wars film every two or three years. Georges Lucas will stay on board for the new projects as a creative consultant, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is the current co-chair of Lucasfilm, will assume the role of division president at Disney and will serve as executive producer in the new trilogy.

I’m doing this so that the films will have a longer life, so more fans can enjoy them in the future. It’s a very big universe that I’ve created and there’s a lot of stories that are sitting in there“, Lucas said in an interview. “I get to be a fan. It’s a lot more fun than actually going out in the mud.

After much online speculation, LucasFilm confirmed on a post that Michael Arndt has been selected for one of the most sought after jobs in Hollywood at the moment: he will pen the screenplay for Star Wars Episode VII. He has already worked for Disney in the past, written Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story 3,” and in 2006 “Little Miss Sunshine” for which he earned an Academy Award. He also penned the highly anticipated “Hunger Games” sequel, “Catching Fire” (currently in production).

We also now that Harrison Ford has expressed interest in returning as Han Solo, while Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher met with Lucas in August to discuss Episodes VII, VIII, and IX.
