...and almost everything they owned. That's Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and all their tech.
New Star Wars movie to come in 2015, first of three announced films, with more to follow afterwards.
Lucas sold it for 4 bil, 50% of which he pockets himself in cash, with another 50% in Disney stock.
Not sure what to make of this. Lucas was doing a pretty good job of **** all over his own creations...can Disney exploiting them really be that much worse?
But damn. Disney owns everything.
EDIT: Additional details from conference call:
Goal is 1-2 Marvel movies a year.
Disney's understanding is that Lucas is retiring.
