Disney has just bought Lucasfilms for $4.05 billion dollars and plan on releasing episode seven (episode VII) of the "Star Wars" franchise in 2015!
George Lucas confirmed the purchase and the making of episode VII to the associated press not long ago:
“For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see ‘Star Wars’ passed from one generation to the next,” said Lucas. “It’s now time for me to pass ‘Star Wars’ on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that ‘Star Wars’ could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, ‘Star Wars’ will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products.”
Episode VII will be the first of the final 3 films that Lucas wrote scripts for, but never intended to release in his lifetime.
This news is huge from a tech standpoint, a financial standpoint, and for the fans, who thought they would never see an episode VII.

There are times when songs are so powerful. They are not sung perfectly. They are not going to win awards. The message, however, the journey, makes the song amazing. This is one of those instances. We all know Demi Lovato has been though a lot in the past year. Rehab. So-called weight issues. Losing the approval of Disney moms. The thing is, many teenage girls relate to her in ways we just don't understand.
"Skyscraper" (The other blogger cannot even spell that right) debuted on E! News tonight. They get it. They are not putting Demi under the rug. Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone wants to rise up as tall as a skyscraper after hitting rock bottom.
"You can take everything I have. You can break everything I am" she sings. The thing is, they did. Yet, she is rising from the ground.
Like I said before, it is not sung perfectly but the emotions more than make up for it. If it was sung perfectly without the emotions and inspiration, I would not be digging it.-Dr.FB
We don't think Victoria Justice was kissing her "BFB" (Best Friends Brother) over the weekend in L.A., but we don't know if Ryan Rottman is her BFB.
The actress/singer who has a hit with "BFB" was in L.A., taking a break from filming "Fun Size" with Chelsea Handler, who plays her mom in the film due in 2012.
Ryan Rottman is no slouch himself, starring in "TeenNick" on the Nickelodeon channel. For those that do not know, Victoria stars in "Victorious" which also airs on Nickelodeon.-Dr.FB
