Star Wars: The Old Republic News - The Disney Deal

Posted by Michael Bitton on Nov 01, 2012  | 69 comments in our forums

George Lucas has sold the Lucas empire to Disney for the sum of $4.05 billion and we've got some thoughts to share on the subject, including what it could mean for MMO fans and SWTOR going forward.

From reading reactions around the internets, it seems that most people are reacting fairly well to this news. Honestly, when it comes to Star Wars, George Lucas essentially retired (with regards to Star Wars) after the original trilogy. Heck, maybe even after the first film! Aside from the prequel trilogy, George only directed A New Hope, after all. In the years since the original trilogy debuted, it seemed to me that George simply kept a tight grip on his IP and would occasionally tweak the films out of, I don’t know, perhaps boredom, but often to fans’ displeasure. George eventually got the idea that he was ready to direct the prequel trilogy and we all know how that turned out.
