News broke a couple of weeks ago that Disney have acquired LucasFilm for a pretty $4.05 billion, and therefore rights to Star Wars. No sooner was this mentioned that talks of Star Wars Episode VII emerged in which would be part of another trilogy. The rumour mill has been working overtime of who will direct, who shouldn’t direct and the possibility that Harrison Ford may reprise his role of Han Solo, along with stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.
So far it appears Oscar winning screenwriter Michael Arndt has drafted up a screenplay for all three sequels: Episodes VII, VIII and IX, and the likes of Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) and Jon Favreau (Iron Man 1+2) are on fan’s lips to direct Episode VII, which is due to be released in cinemas in 2015, with subsequent films a year apart.
Whether Disney will make a success of the franchise is yet to be seen, but their force within the film industry is quite substantial, with vested interested in movies, games and theme parks.
