Star Wars Episode VIII Title Revealed

As you can see, the subtitle of episode 8 is “The Last Jedi”. Of course it doesn’t tell us much more about the film. This isn’t the first time a Star Wars property has used the name “The last Jedi”. A 1981 issue of Marvel’s Star Wars comic used the title for a standalone story written by Mike Barr and Walt Simonson. A 2013 novel written by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff told the story of a Jedi being pursued by Vader who is carrying out Order 66. Also a 2014 fan film makes use of the title. Episode 8 is due later this year on December 15.

Famicom Dojo Podcast: LucasArts and Crafts

George Lucas recently sold all of LucasFilm to Disnet for $4 billion.
Not only does that mean there will be a new Star Wars movie in 2015, but all of
LucasFilm’s ancillary businesses came with the deal: the graphic effects powerhouse
Industrial Light and Magic, used by almost every major motion picture studio for
photorealistic effects; Skywalker Sound, which does for audio was ILM does for video;
and the once-mighty Graphic Adventure game shop LucasArts.

Sean and Vinnk reminisce about their favorite LucasArts games from their childhood —
such as Loom, Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle, the Indiana Jones Graphic Adventures,
and more — trace through its more recent games to see what the studio has become,
and speculate what will become of its talented game designers once faced with Disney’s
own powerful video game publisher, Disney Interactive.

Disney buys Lucasfilm, Star Wars Episode 7 coming in 2015

News is starting to break that a blockbuster deal has taken place with Disney purchasing Lucasfilm. It seems George Lucas was ready to retire. Lucasfilm was entirely owned by Lucas. In the deal worth US$4.05 Billion, half was in cash, while the other half was in the form of about 40 million shares.

The first I heard about it was here.

Further articles revealed that Star Wars Episode 7 is coming with a target release year of 2015. Lucas will serve as a creative consultant for the film, while current co-chair of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy will serve as executive producer in addition to her new role as President of Lucasfilm and brand manager of Star Wars.

This is a developing story. We will have more as we hear it.
