George Lucas is donating all $4 billion of his Disney money to charity

Is Lucas terminally ill or something? After selling Lucasfilm to Disney for a massive $4 billion dollars, George Lucas announced that he’s giving all of it to charity. Since he owned 100% of the company and had almost no debt, that $4 billion is all his to do with what he wants. So he’s giving it away.

Daily Discussion: Now that Lucas has passed on the Star Wars franchise, who should direct the next three SW movies?

Lucasfilm is now officially part of Disney, and even though Lucas is now one of the largest shareholders in the Disney corporation, he’s not going to be writing or directing any of the new Star Wars movies Disney now has planned. So with Episode VII, due out in 2015, who would you like to see direct?

HOLY LIGHTSABERS. Disney is buying Lucasfilm for 4 billion, targeting a Star Wars VII release date for 2015. This is real.

In “this is absolutely real” news, Disney today announced they were buying Lucasfilm for a whopping $4 billion dollars, and already have a Lucasfilm project in the hopper— Star Wars VII, which will be followed by Star Wars VIII and then a two part nine. As long as Lucas stays the hell out of it, it might be pretty decent.

Some of you may already know this, but ET was apparently from the Star Wars universe
Before some of you are all like “OOOOOOOLD NEWS”, I don’t spend every waking hour on Star Wars fan wikis and circle jerk forums, so this is new news to me. But apparently, there’s a split second in The Phantom Menace that shows that ET’s race have a seat on the Senate of the Old Republic. So there. Now you know, if you didn’t already.

George Lucas does something cool for a change… gets revenge on his uppity neighbors

After years of wrangling with his wealthy neighbors in Marin County, California over the development of a movie studio on his extensive property, George Lucas has decided to give a big fuck you to his neighbors. He’s abandoned the idea of building a movie studio and instead, he’s going to turn that area of his property into low income housing.

What if Star Wars Episode I had actually been good?

Like really good? Like not coming across like it was written by someone who has absolutely no clue how to develop characters, assemble a plot or tell an engaging story. Break it down.

Meet Amanda Lucas, daughter of George Lucas and badass MMA fighter

If you’re the daughter of one of the most money-making movie directors ever, you could easily just live as some sort of floozy socialite, but Amanda Lucas is definitely not that kind of girl. Instead, she’s an ass-kicking MMA fighter who recently made her openweight debut.

George Lucas claims he’s retiring from making blockbusters

George Lucas, the man who would never turn down an opportunity to exploit the shit out of his films until every last penny has been drained from them, is now saying that after Red Tails, he’s done with big budget films and wants to only do low budget personal movies. Hell, it might happen. Prince is a Jehovah’s Witness, so I guess anything is possible.

George Lucas names the planet of Obi-Wan’s birth after Jon Stewart

At the Star Wars Celebration V this year, Jon Stewart asked George Lucas where Obi Wan Kenobi was born, and apparently this had never been established. So as a joke, Lucas just made up a planet called “Stewjon”, named after Jon Stewart as the place of Obi Wan’s birth. But since it came from the neck of Lucas, it’s since become canon, appearing everywhere as fictional fact.

1988 George Lucas vs 2011 George Lucas on changing things in movies

Recently there’s been a lot of shit being flung around the internet about things that George Lucas is changing in Star Wars, and I haven’t posted any of them here, because they’re mostly bullshit. Yes, every now and again I do actually do a little bit of fact checking even if it often looks like I’m just sort of doing this whole thing sort of half-assed.
