Disney-Lucasfilm Deal Closes

This Week's Latest's Pop Culture News

Disney-Lucasfilm Deal Closes

By: Staff
Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm closed on Friday, with Disney paying $2.208,199,950 in cash and 37,076,679 Disney shares to Lucasfilm shareholders. The deal was announced in late October (see "Disney Acquires Lucasfilm"), making this a relatively rapid path to closing. The implications of the purchase are still working their way through both companies. Work on the next trilogy of films is proceeding, with writers already assigned to Episodes 8 and 9 (see "Kasdan and Kinberg for 'Star Wars'"). Meanwhile, it’s just been reported that the Dark Horse Star Wars license ends after 2013, and that Disney does not plan to renew, planning instead to have Marvel produce Star Wars comics (see "No More Dark Horse 'Star Wars'?").
