Disney Buys Lucasfilm For $4.05 Billion

The Walt Disney Company is officially going to acquire Lucasfilm Ltd. in a stock and cash transaction worth $4.05 billion.

Star Wars with Jackson would be better than what it was with Lucas for the past 30 years.

Ironic you show the walkers, for the same price you could buy the Mars Curiosity with a REAL laser.
