Walt Disney Buys Lucasfilm, New Star Wars Movie Coming To a Galaxy Near You?

Andrew: Hello readers! This is going to be a brief post but it's a pretty crazy one, because Reuters is reporting that the Walt Disney Company is purchasing George Lucas' Lucasfilm studio, including the Star Wars franchise, for $4.05 billion.
