Disney Aquires Lucasfilm

November 9th, 2012

Hello Disney lovers. The big news coming out of Disney this past week is its acquiring of media giant Lucasfilm. Disney purchased the company for $4.05 Billion. This latest deal done by Disney opens the door for a potential avalanche of new things for the Disney parks. What Lucasfilm is most notably known for is the incredibly successful Star Wars franchise. What most people may have forgotten, myself included, is that Lucasfilm also owns the Indiana Jones movies. Some may think this is no big deal as Disney World already has the Indiana Jones stunt show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. However, a lot of people feel that this mega deal will cause a major expansion of both Indiana Jones and Star Wars in the Disney Parks. In fact, shortly after the deal was announced, Disney fans were already drawing up their own blueprints for a Star Wars land that could be constructed inside Walt Disney World or in Disneyland. Speaking of Star Wars, as part of the purchase of Lucasfilm, Disney announced the making of 3 new Star Wars movies starting in 2015. Apparently this will be Episodes 7, 8 and 9 in the franchise. One can only imagine how the Star Wars movies will be with the added Disney touch. All of these avenues that Disney now has at their disposal should make Disney an even larger force in the media world. How do you feel about Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm? Do you agreee with it? Why or why not? Please comment below or E-mail us at admin@beyondthecastleblog.com with your thoughts. For now though, as always, have a magical day!
