Lucasfilm personnel officially became Disney employees today as The Walt Disney Company completed its purchase of Lucasfilm Ltd. following European Union regulators' approval of the deal. (The U.S. Federal Trade Commission approved the deal earlier this month.) Disney paid George Lucas $2.21 billion in cash and issued him 37.1 million shares of Disney stock (currently valued at $50 per share), for a grand total of $4.065 billion. As Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo wryly noted on Twitter today:
@clubjade Every SW development since Oct attributed to Disney was actually LFL... at least now that misreporting will be semi-accurate. ;)
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
