So Disney will now own 'STAR WARS' and I assume the Indiana Jones franchise?
Yahoo News reports that "STAR WARS: EPISODE 7 feature film targeted for release in 2015."
Disney confirmed that Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound are included in the transaction. It also confirmed a long-term plan of releasing a new feature Star Wars film every two to three years — beyond the planned Episodes 7, 8, and 9.
Seeing how Lucas has already ruined the franchise a thousand times over, this changes nothing. Except now we'll get even more; some bad and hopefully some good.
For those keeping track, Disney now owns The Muppets, Pixar, Marvel, ABC and now LucasFilm, Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), Skywalker Sound, The Ranch....
Well it looks like that wish we made in 1982 (and every year since) is going to come true (maybe)... they are going to make "KING CONAN" with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film is tentatively titled "THE LEGEND OF CONAN" (it should be "King Conan" dammit) and s being described as “Conan’s Unforvigen.”
Chris Morgan, writer of the last four Fast and Furious Films (ugh),
came up with the story and might write the script. This film will pretend that 'Conan the Destroyer' didn’t happen, and will also ignore the 2011 reboot. Universal wants this one to be
in theaters for summer 2014.
Man, this is awesome news but they will need to knock this out of the park. 'Conan The Destroyer', 'Conan Reboot'
and 99% of Hollywood movies the past 20 years tells us the odds are not
in our favor of having a great King Conan flick. The first thing I'd do
is call up JOHN MILIUS and the folks behind HBO's 'GAME OF THRONES'.
But hey, atleast we'll finally get Arnold as King Conan. Fingers crossed and prayers to Crom!
