It's a long official statement so I'll just link to the main press release

 

http://thewaltdisneycompany.com/disney-news/press-releases/2012/10/disney-acquire-lucasfilm-ltd

 

tl;dr

 

Disney will now own Lucasfilm and all of its subsidiaries (ILM, Skywalker Sound, LucasArts)

 

Also, Disney now own the Star Wars license and Episode 7 will be arriving by 2015 :smileysurprised:

Disney? Hmm.

 

Well, I suppose they can't make the films any worse than the prequel trilogy.

QotD from Simon Pegg: "Does this mean Leia is now a Disney princess? She'll have to go get her nails done with Ariel and lend Pocahontas her metal bikini."
