Were you worried a Disney-owned Star Wars franchise would ignore the stars — pun intended — who catapulted the series into megawatt fame in the first place?

George Lucas finds your lack of faith disturbing!

In a recent interview, the creator divulged a bit too much info when he swore many of our old school faves were already onboard with the new films!!

So, which big names did he promise were poised for appearances?!

Harrison Ford as the handsome rogue Han Solo, perhaps?

Or maybe Carrie Fisher as his pretty pretty Princess?

What about Mark Hamill as the whiny dust farmer who mastered The Force, found out his dad was Hayden Christensen, and then freed the galaxy from evil oppressors!

Would you believe us if we told you…

Did Matthew Vaughn Drop Out Of X-Men: First Class Sequel To Direct Star Wars???

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

If so, then we can totally understand why!

Matthew Vaughn mysteriously dropped out of directing the sequel to his 2011 blockbuster, X-Men: First Class, and ended up convincing the franchise's original director, Bryan Singer, to take his place.

Now there is a rumor going around that he MAY have been in talks with LucasFilm to direct Star Wars: Episode VII and that's why he couldn't commit to X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Anyone who has seen the superhero blockbuster or any of his other films like Layer Cake, Stardust and Kick-Ass might feel he's the right man for the job.

Then again, Star Wars fans take this shiz seriously. We imagine they are crossing their fingers for Steven Spielberg or Christopher Nolan.

Do U think Vaughn would be a good choice to carry on George Lucas' vision?

George Lucas Giving Star Wars Money To Education

George Lucas Star Wars

Back in 2010, George Lucas joined with Bill Gates and Warren Buffett in The Giving Pledge, a declaration that he would use most of his fortune for charity.

George's particular focus was on education. He said:

"I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education. It is the key to the survival of the human race. We have to plan for our collective future — and the first step begins with social, emotional and intellectual tools we provide to our children. As humans, our greatest tool for survival is our ability to think and to adapt — as educators, storytellers and communicators, our responsibility is to continue to do so."

Well, the Star Wars creator is $4 billion dollars richer as of Tuesday. How will he be spending that money?

Disney Buys Lucasfilm!!! Another Star Wars Trilogy On Way???

Filed under: DisneyBusiness Blitz

Disney Buys Lucas

When George Lucas said he was retiring, we didn't realize how serious he was!

Well, someone at Disney was paying attention! Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger put 2 and 2 together and made 4.

Billion.

As in a $4 b-b-billion with a "B" offer which George accepted! The Walt Disney Company is now the proud owner of LucasFilm Ltd.!

In his announcement this afternoon, Iger explains:

"Lucasfilm reflects the extraordinary passion, vision, and storytelling of its founder, George Lucas. This transaction combines a world-class portfolio of content including Star Wars, one of the greatest family entertainment franchises of all time, with Disney's unique and unparalleled creativity across multiple platforms, businesses, and markets to generate sustained growth and drive significant long-term value."

Um, we know we read between the lines a lot, but it sounded to us like he just said they're going to be making more Star Wars!

So what does George himself have to say about the transaction?
