Breaking news: Lucas sells Lucasfilm, hands over the keys to “Star Wars” to Disney

This news rocked the halls of Geek Squad corporate (Best Buy) this afternoon. If you know anything about your typical Geek Squad Agent, Star Wars is pretty much embedded in our DNA. (Heck, more than a few Agents list “Jedi” as their religious affiliation on various social media sites.) So news of this sort is bound to cause comments to fly around our ranks.


Fast on this announcement came another one: Disney plans on releasing new Star Wars movies every 2-3 years. While arguments amongst Star Wars fan boys may abound, one thing they are united on is the desire for episodes 7 – 9 to finally be produced. Will we see such a thing out of this? Will they bring back the characters we grew up with (Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca)? Will it connect with the Expanded Universe, or start off fresh?


Very little is known, yet one thing is for sure: the Star Wars universe just got a whole lot bigger – and we’ll be standing not-so-patiently by (with money in hand) to see what happens next.
