Disney is serious about Star Wars – sure they announced in the press release that we’d get Star Wars Episode 7 – but during a call with press and analysts, Disney’s CEO promised:

Star Wars Episodes 8, 9 AND 10!!!

 

“The last Star Wars movie release was 2005’s Revenge of the Sith and we believe there is substantial pent up demand,” Robert A. Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company said during the call. “In 2015 we are planning to release Star Wars episode 7 , that will be followed by episodes 8 and 9 and our long term plan is to release a new star wars feature film every two to three years.”

Star Wars Episode 7 VII Set for Release in 2015. Lucas Sells to Disney for $4 Billion October 30, 2012

George Lucas ‘ THE MAKER’ has sold out LucasFilm to Mickey Mouse for $4 Billion.
Not totally shocking that the sale was made to Disney given that Lucasfilm and Disney have had a relationship for nearly two decades.

The price – only $4 billion is a shocker. We have previously written that Star Wars was worth approx $30 billion over its lifespan so the $4billion figure sure seems cheap.

Aside from the ownership change though the bigger news is that

STAR WARS EPISODE VII IS SET FOR RELEASE IN 2015!!!!

That’s right there is life after Anakin Skywalker’s death.

For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” said George Lucas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lucasfilm. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products.”

Edwin Massey the recorder of history made history. He will be greatly missed. he gave his life selflessly in pursuit of freedom and a better future

Star Trek Captain Worf Show in the Works October 5, 2012

Not sure how we missed this – but Michael Dorn has confirmed that he’s working on development of a new star trek show – based on his character Worf (son of Moog!)

How amazing is that?

Now…while Dorn might be interested…we have seen NOTHING from CBS in recent years to indicate that a new show could be coming. Consider the re-imagined Trek is back on the screen in 2013 and it’s a different Canon..not sure the rights holders would even allow it…

Fringe Season 5: Will Etta (Henrietta) Die in Episode 4? October 1, 2012

Someone is going to die in Fringe Season 5 and it’s not going to be pretty.

In an interview this week Joshua Jackson (Peter Bishop) gave out some stunning teasers.

This is what he said:

We have a scene — with a character who I will not name, doing a thing I can’t tell you about — where [a dangerous] scenario plays out. It’s just a small, quotidian thing. [But] one break from the routine leads to disaster. I mean, really f–king major disaster. And if that sense of dread permeates the show this year, I think that’s really good

That’s gotta be Etta right? What other epic disaster? Olivia dead? a major city gone?

ok so there was nothing else on and we gave Revolution another shot.

Big mistake. After about 15 minutes it was so pitiful we somehow found the strength to get up off the couch (long day here) and walk away …just like NBC will soon too.
