Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm closed on Friday, with Disney paying $2.208,199,950 in cash and 37,076,679 Disney shares to Lucasfilm shareholders.
Roll on, 2015 and the new movies, apparently. The first official piece of Disney/Lucasfilm magic? Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers were featured prominently in the Disney Christmas Parade broadcast live Christmas morning, with the Imperial March playing as they patrolled Main Street in Magic Kingdom, Disney World. We’ll see if there’s any clarification about the future of the comics license anytime soon, as well.
