teh ‘monkey needs a hug

The past hour the Internet has been all abuzz with news that George Lucas has sold Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound, and the rights to the expanded Star Wars universe to Disney for $4.05 billion (half in cash and half in 40 million shares of Disney). Kathleen Kennedy, current co-chairman of Lucasfilm, will take over as President of the company and serve as executive producer for Star Wars: Episode VII which is tentatively scheduled for a 2015 release date. I’ve decided to be cautiously optimistic, but someone may want to give teh ‘monkey a hug as he’s currently crawled up in a ball under his desk muttering obscenities and planning a way to kill everyone involved.
