Kyle Buchanan for Vulture (emphasis mine):
So, Disney bought Lucasfilm today. Significant! But here is the really, really crazy thing: In the release announcing the acquisition, buried in the sixth paragraph, comes this huge announcement: “[New Lucasfilm president Kathleen] Kennedy will serve as executive producer on new Star Wars feature films, with George Lucas serving as creative consultant. Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for release in 2015, with more feature films expected to continue the Star Wars saga and grow the franchise well into the future.”
Before we all lose our minds I offer this wisdom: why the fuck not?
