BelfastBoy -> Disney acquires Lucasfilm, Star Wars episode 7 on way? (30/10/2012 8:33:13 PM)

First saw this on Digital Spy, had to check the calendar. No, apparently it isn't April Fool's Day:

The prospect of Disney-fied Star Wars cash-ins is bad enough, but then I noticed this little gem buried away in the press release:

"Kathleen Kennedy, current Co-Chairman of Lucasfilm, will become President of Lucasfilm, reporting to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn. Additionally she will serve as the brand manager for Star Wars, working directly with Disney's global lines of business to build, further integrate, and maximize the value of this global franchise. Ms. Kennedy will serve as executive producer on new Star Wars feature films, with George Lucas serving as creative consultant. Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for release in 2015, with more feature films expected to continue the Star Wars saga and grow the franchise well into the future."
