George Lucas Says Disney’s ‘Star Wars’ Could Last 100 Years

Lucas says talks are already underway with writers for the upcoming 2015 seventh film, with two more planned after that.

At this point, we don’t know much about what the seventh “Star Wars” 
 film will be about, 
 but we certainly have some ideas about what we do and don’t 
 want to see.

Along with fans, we were thrown into a frenzy on Tuesday when it was announced that Disney had purchased George Lucas’ Lucasfilm for more than $4 billion. The deal will not only bring Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, Han and the gang into the Mouse house, but it will also serve to re-boot one of the most popular and highest-grossing film franchises of all time.

After five-decade career in filmmaking, in a YouTube video explaining the deal, Lucas said he’s been contemplating retirement for a while and now seemed like the right time to hand over the keys to the Jedi kingdom.
