Wow

This would have NEVER been able to happen with Michael Eisner as CEO. Lucas has said he is done, he knows that the company will be in good hands with Disney...Great partnership IMO - Dave  13493.0 #2 1:31PM
Absolutely, can't wait to see what implications this will have on the parks. - NickDoubleyew  1083.2 #168 1:35PM
I would love a third gate with nothing but star wars with all the lands as different lands in the Movies - Dave   13493.0 #2 1:41PM
That would be great! - NickDoubleyew  1083.2 #168 1:44PM
It's the same reason the Pixar acquisition didn't happen until Iger became CEO. Eisner definitely deserves his accolades for pulling Disney out of a disastrous tailspin and breathing fresh life into it, but Iger is definitely an awesome CEO and has been taking Disney in incredible new directions. - Experiment818  1647.2 #101 2:19PM
Love the third gate idea! πŸ‘ - tdashgirl  320.4 #800 11:31PM
Imagine a Star Wars themed ride at Disneyland O_o mind blown! - LaTruce  2352.9 #65 1:26PM
Ride? How about a whole new land with a cantina and everything? - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 1:33PM
Wait isn't there already one? - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 1:39PM
Here's an idea: it could be in 3-D and have different places we could visit. We could call it Star Tours! - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 1:40PM
Not the same ;) - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 1:41PM
you have zero imagination BaseballMickey - Dave   13493.0 #2 2:07PM
or they could have a Jedi training academy for kids where u can battle Darth Vader & Darth Maul!! - Stitch_Legacy  5138.2 #23 3:27PM
From what I've read 2014 Disneyland Paris. Is opening a starwars LANd. :) - Jfigg23  257.8 #1276 3:56PM
Oh come on! There should be a Star Wars themed PARK with each land being a different planet ... - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 7:32PM
YAY! Nowwwww.... Am I going to get a Disney name badge? - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 1:31PM
You better!! - iPoca.  916.9 #200 1:33PM
I guess that means you work for Lucas? Are you up in San Fafael area? - debbiev  1170.6 #151 3:10PM
@Ipoca ...lol @debbiev I'm at ILM(Industrail Light and Magic) in San Francisco. The company used to be at the Skywalker Ranch in San Rafael. - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 3:16PM
THAT WOULD BE SO COOL! :D - Jillian  767.1 #244 3:49PM
That's awesome! You must be so proud to work for such a great company, one that pioneered so many of the visual effects techniques that are widely in use today. And now you get to work for Disney...congrats. - debbiev  1170.6 #151 5:01PM
I Don't know if we get DL passes Strawberryguy, I guess we'll know in the next few weeks once the dust settles. Thanks Debbie, I was over ecstatic when they first offer me the job. - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 8:12PM
Howard the duck to replace Donald. - chris.  2511.0 #56 2:16PM
gawd, I hope not! - debbiev  1170.6 #151 5:11PM
Dislike, dislike, dislike. Lol. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 5:22PM
I was just waiting for this to happen in a long time. After the refurb of Star Tours and with new Star Wars merch consistently coming out, I always wondered if the two will ever merge and it happened. I can now call Indiana Jones and Darth Vader fellow Cast Members... - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 1:43PM
Yay! More John Williams compositions at Disneyland as well! - otilegna  2664.8 #48 2:00PM
^yes - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 2:01PM
Yes!!! - TikiJOSEsWingman  332.4 #733 2:03PM
Yes please!! - GibsonGirl87  462.3 #470 2:10PM
I want to hear Duel of the Fates or Battle of the Heroes playing during Jedi Training Academy. Or when you're walking into Space Mountain. - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 2:56PM
i just want to hear a Cantina Band music at Tomorrowland! - otilegna  2664.8 #48 4:14PM
I agree with vincentchase on this. I too have mixed feelings about this as a fanboy and huge Star Wars fan. And like all of you I'm also a big Disney fan. And like most true Star Wars fans I was very disappointed with episodes 1-3. Maybe Disney can redeem the franchise. Who wouldn't need to be redeemed from the likes of Jar Jar Binks? As long as they follow the story line that's already out there and not tick off alot more fans by doing a complete u turn, then they should be fine. Oh and Disney, please don't jump on the reboot bandwagon and defile the original trilogy by redoing the whole thing. If anything redo episodes 1-3 if possible, I think you'll find a lot of grateful fans. Lol! Please don't let us down Disney. You've inherited a precious thing. Will the force be strong with you? We'll see. - DarthMickey  64.1 #4311 2:58PM
My excitement grew more because of the love my son has for Star Wars - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 3:52PM
Somewhere Lacey is smiling - E-Ticket  1466.6 #115 5:52PM
Such an awesome move by disney first was pixar then marvel and now lucasfilms. Amazing these company's will mostlikely never die out and will he creatively protected while still being able to creat such great products thank u Disney co. - gabenieto86  9.7 #11227 1:33PM
Wow. Mousewait was quicker on this story then my ABC7 app. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 1:34PM
MW always is! - MXPrincess399  753.7 #250 1:36PM
Also quicker than Disney Facebook post - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 1:55PM
Does this mean Disney will clear up the who shot first controversy? - lampwick  310.3 #855 1:35PM
That's where all that extra AP money went! - MXPrincess399  753.7 #250 1:53PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚And is gonna go. I smell a price hike - misschurro  6361.2 #17 1:54PM
That was my first thought! We helped buy it, didn't we? - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:26PM
Awesome! Hmmmm, I wonder if they will incorporate Star Wars and tomorrowland. - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #613 2:17PM
Awesome intergalactic news!!! - Willierose  2348.6 #67 2:24PM
I hope starwars weekends make its way to Disneyland like in florida - Jedifam  20.4 #7259 2:46PM
I bet they will. I have been and they are fun!! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 2:48PM
Can't wait to see what Disney does with this. This means Leia is now a member of the Princess club!!! Yeah! πŸ‘ - PrincePhillip  203.8 #1954 3:20PM
Now we have a chance to have a Marvel AND Star Wars world in Kingdom Hearts 3 - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #341 3:54PM
Good by innoventions hello Star Wars 😸 - MetalMermaid  156.6 #2615 5:08PM
Oh, I think this will be much, MUCH bigger than an Innoventions refurb. With Avatar Land all but completely scrapped in Orlando, I see Imaginears heading back to the drawing board to expand Disney Hollywood Studios (which makes sense, since that park already houses Star Tours). - susieQzee  555.8 #366 5:21PM
Something to give The Wizarding World of Harry Potter a run for the money, literally and figuratively. - susieQzee  555.8 #366 5:22PM
I would LOVE to see innoventions turned into the Death Star!!!! - CM_tamstirr  558.5 #361 6:37PM
That's a LOT of money! *checks her family tree to see if there's a Lucas connection somehow, somewhere* - susieQzee  555.8 #366 5:18PM
Dave, just when you think your day couldn't get any better, I am happy to report that as we were leaving on the tram today we saw the Christmas tree completely built. Sorry I couldn't get a pic. I'll try when we go back Friday. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 5:23PM
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ bring on the πŸŽ„!! - SarahLovesDisney  85.2 #3836 5:57PM
I know that they might make episode 7. Hopefully they have the original cast from episode 4, 5, and 6. - SkyShy  17.2 #7952 6:00PM
Loved Star Trek - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 9:01PM
WOOOOWWWWWW!! YES, Win. - iPoca.  916.9 #200 1:21PM
I was just making a tinyurl to post too. Ditto wow! - Darlingwendi  1222.7 #140 1:21PM
Incredible! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 1:21PM
yay!! - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 1:22PM
Haha. I was just logging on to post this. Here is another link. http://m.hollywoodreporter.com/news/disney-buy-lucasfilm-405-billion-384448 - mouselaw1076  37.1 #5381 1:24PM
Very nice - Tealtownfan  1015.6 #184 1:25PM
Excellent move. Disney has been making some VERY smart acquisitions of late. - Experiment818  1647.2 #101 1:26PM
This is great news, I was also joining the tinyurl gang. - NickDoubleyew  1083.2 #168 1:27PM
Does this mean they can actually represent Harrison Ford's likeness on Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye now? - NickDoubleyew  1083.2 #168 1:29PM
Ooooh! I hope so! That would be a great addition! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 1:30PM
Maybe they'll turn Skywalker Ranch into a Norcal Disneyland? - Darlingwendi  1222.7 #140 1:28PM
πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - misschurro  6361.2 #17 1:29PM
Nice try ;) - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 1:30PM
Marin County would never allow it. I can dream ;) - Darlingwendi  1222.7 #140 2:13PM
Yes yes yes yes yes yes :) that would be incredible! But no, our county would never allow. Sigh. Great news, though! - MissMolly  1355.3 #129 9:27PM
What really why? - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 1:29PM
With Star Wars Episode 7 set for 2015.. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 1:30PM
Awesome! Disney is the only company that could and will do it justice. Great move! What happens now with the Star Wars mini land at Legoland?! - ariel1981  287.4 #991 1:35PM
If disney puts competent people to run things like they did for marvel then it can be very good. - bigben1138  311.4 #843 1:37PM
Wow! This is huge! Thank you for the infoπŸ‘ - PoppinsWoo  329.7 #751 1:39PM
Why does Santa look so serious? - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 1:42PM
I have never watched Star Wars. 😲 - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 1:44PM
Now just think of it as a Disney movie. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 1:45PM
I seriously don't even know what its about, I have been on Star Tours only a few times, and don't get it. Not a real Sci Fi Fan. Glad everyone is happy about this thou! - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 1:52PM
What!? Have you been living under a rock? #shocked πŸ™ŠπŸ˜³ - xtigerxlilyx  83.0 #3881 1:59PM
I haven't either. Not really interested in it either. Star Tours is ok, but like you I don't get the story-line. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 1:59PM
Local boy goes out on a mission to defeat evil villain and rescue princess. Comes home hero. Evil is defeated. Not much more complicated than that. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 2:01PM
@IDVandal, glad I am not the only one! :) - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 2:08PM
Ok, its confession time. I'm not a Star Wars fan, if I had to choose I prefer 1-3 over the originals and I actually did like Jar Jar Binks. 😱 - Vegan7LuvsStitch  1026.3 #178 3:56PM
I guess nobody could say there is no Disney tie in for Indiana and Star Tours now lol - CupcakeJedi  391.5 #573 1:47PM
Speechless. - CarmenINwonderlanD  265.1 #1207 1:49PM
I was just reading about this online before checking MW. WOW is right! I'm looking forward to all the possibilities. πŸ‘ - grumpypapa  5469.2 #19 1:51PM
And who's surprised? - Kayoss  82.7 #3889 1:51PM
Mixed feelings on this. Love the Star Wars saga and love Star Tours, I am just shocked. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #438 1:52PM
Mind. Blown. - NEMFLCN  31.8 #5808 1:52PM
Amazing! - jjdq  338.0 #711 2:00PM
As a fanboy I have mixed feelings. I know that Lucas is in Good hands. However I'm just scared as what they will do to the Legacy of Lucas films. Even though Lucas has tarnished some of that legacy by Making Starwar episodes I-III. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 2:03PM
WOW!!!!! Can't wait to see wha that means for us!!! Perfect marriage!!!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 2:05PM
Does mean leia is officially a Disney princess-can't wait to see her on the princess float! She will fit right in πŸ˜‚ - missyandpaul  285.8 #1004 2:11PM
You do realize that was 30-40 years ago... Carrie Fisher looks much different now. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 2:17PM
Mypark, I think missyandpaul are thinking about a new Leia face character being added to the park, not actually bringing Carrie Fisher to be in the parade. - courtneydax  13.9 #9000 2:21PM
Be respectful to Carrie Fisher. She may be older now, but she is an icon. - debbiev  1170.6 #151 3:24PM
Let's see, the merging of the best theme park company ever with a galaxy full of wondrous people and planets...I think I like it! Star Wars Land anyone??? - WildToadMan  54.9 #4580 2:17PM
OMG! *geek ecstasy fit* - ThatStarWarsKimberly  408.0 #550 2:19PM
I think this will be a wonderful addition to tomorrowland. With Inoventions set to close, we could very well see that space being used for all things Star Wars. Tomorrowland needs something new in it for sure. - courtneydax  13.9 #9000 2:23PM
What a good idea! - debbiev  1170.6 #151 5:09PM
But star wars takes place a long time ago, in a galaxy far away...not tomorrowland. 😜 - bluefairy  643.8 #312 7:56PM

What is this Google+ you speak of? - misschurro  6361.2 #17 2:42PM
Google+ as in the search engine, right? Since when does it have a plus - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 2:59PM
Is that the paid version of Google? - onezerohero  174.2 #2329 3:35PM
I just heard about this on the radio and my jaw dropped! I can't believe Mr. Lucas passed his legacy to Disney...amazing! I hope this means something awesome for the parks - CM_tamstirr  558.5 #361 2:39PM
Super stoked! I'll be geekin out about this for the rest of the year and maybe longer! Hurry up 2015! - UgotAfriendNme  96.6 #3641 2:44PM
So where should they put the Jar Jar meet and greet? - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #781 2:52PM

Who are those guys? - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 3:35PM
Its the guy who created the Star Trek movies. Ha ha. Just kidding. I used to always get SW and ST mixed up. - Vegan7LuvsStitch  1026.3 #178 3:41PM
I wish I was more obsessed with Star Wars to get really excited over this but it's still pretty cool. I know there are lots of MWers who are huge Star Wars fans. :) - Jillian  767.1 #244 3:50PM
Christmas just came early for my Hubby! We just went to Star Wars weekend this past May for the first time couldn't get him out of the park! Now we need one in DL then we would could go every year! - msgaz31  6.8 #14357 4:13PM
OMG OMG OMG I'm psyched. Great partnership, that was expected already!!! - CaptainPirateKalven  319.8 #802 4:18PM
And Episode VII planned for 2015, this is shocking news. - SorcererD91  2897.9 #45 4:39PM
I am in total shock. I think Disney has been very respectful with the Marvel franchise and I trust they will do the same with the Star Wars legacy. In my humble opinion, I don't think Lucas ever got over the fact that episodes 1-3 were not received well by critics and the public. He poured everything into those movies. Though I had mixed feelings about some of the casting choices he made and some plot points, I have come around. I love all the movies and see how they build off each other. It will be exciting to see the next generation of Star Wars movies evolve. πŸ˜‚ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1566.1 #107 5:20PM
Yes!!!!!! - Disney2500  117.5 #3273 5:41PM
That's crazy! :texts news to Josh: thanks for sharing!! - SarahLovesDisney  85.2 #3836 5:55PM
I think it's great. I'm looking forward to what Disney will do especially with incorporating Star Wars more heavily in the parks. - jlipstone  332.0 #735 6:05PM
How exciting? How much is this going to cost? If AP price hike wasn't bad enough, hold on to your hats folks. Somebody has to pay for it. Just saying. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 7:12PM
It cost just $4B. (Disney made over $40B in 2011) - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 7:16PM
Well they should cut us some slack and give everyone a raise. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 7:24PM
Yaowza! Craziness! Excitement building! - mrscttlemstr  315.9 #821 8:12PM

That is true, the cash that he is getting out of the deal which is 2 billion he is giving to his own Charity...He said he has enough and its not about the money.... - Dave   13493.0 #2 10:41PM
