Savvy move Iger! Lucas has been trusting Disney with his brand for many, many years. Just think of the strength of Star Wars Weekend.

I think the fact that Disney is buying the whole thing is what's surprising.

ILM presumably remains separate.
Nope, ILM and Skywalker Sound are included. Imagineering + ILM... scary awesome.

Yup, and LucasArts as well.

This could be very interesting...

From Variety: Deal not only gives Disney control of the "Star Wars" franchise -- whose films have earned a total of $4.4 billion in global box to date -- but also Lucasfilm's live action film production, consumer products, animation, visual effects, and audio post production units

This might mean I will no longer be disappointed in the order George Lucas intended.

Oh, who am I kidding.

Yeah, I was thinking ILM was operated independently, but I didn't realize they were going for the whole thing, not just the film unit. I think Disney is getting a LOT of resources for that $4B now...

Well, they didn't screw up the avengers movie after buying Marvel. And it's not like they can screw up Star Wars any worse than George Lucas did.
