George Lucas just sold Lucasfilm to Disney. Not only that, but Disney is now working on a new Star Wars trilogy (episodes 7-9) that will be released in 2015. They'll be using George Lucas as a creative consultant, and they will be using a storyline that Lucas has already worked on. Lucas's current co-chair will be going to Disney and will still be in charge of this stuff.
