DISNEY BUYS LUCASFILM for 4.05 billion in cash and stock; Star Wars Episode VII targeted for 2015 release.  What say you, Lord Vader?  One would like to think that the Mouse could do better with this franchise, but George already has story treatments.  That said, this is a relative steal for Disney, which paid more for Pixar.  Disney gets not only the residuals and merch rights, but also Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound, which work on most every Hollywood blockbuster  -- including those from Marvel Studios, which Disney also bought not too long ago.  The Avengers 2 just got cheaper to make through the magic of creative accounting, wherein Disney pays itself for work it once paid Lucas.
