[Non-Political] Disney acquires LucasFilm LTD – Star Wars Episode VII targeted for release in 2015
Ok. Lets take a break from politics for this one post. When I was a kid I loved Star Wars. Even had action figures and even had one of those plastic Millennium Falcon things. Today Disney announced that it was acquiring LucasFilm LTD, the creators of Star Wars. Normally, I would just yawn at the news. But the big news to me coming out of this is that Star Wars Episode VII is scheduled for release in the year 2015.
