Disney rachète LucasFilm

La rumeur commencé à faire le tour du net mais sans véritables informations pour la confirmer. Mais c’est finalement chose faite, ce 30 octobre 2012: Disney vient de racheter la société de production de Georges Lucas: LucasFilm pour 4,05 milliards de $. Une somme rondelette pour un nom mythique, celui du papa de Star Wars mais aussi des volets d’Indiana Jones. Bonne nouvelle ou pas? Toujours est’il que ce n’est pas la seule nouvelle. En effet, Disney a officiellement annoncé l’arrivée d’une nouvelle trilogie, regroupant les épisodes 7,8,9. Et là…. oui, on peut se demander si c’est une bonne nouvelle, sachant que Georges Lucas ne sera plus aux commandes.

 

Cependant, ce n’est pas non plus un scoop, puisqu’une suite de Star Wars avait germé dans la tête de Mr Lucas, il y a déja bien longtemps. En effet, aprés le succés de sa première trilogie, il se penchait sur une saga de 9 épisodes…

 

Surprising news about LucasFilm, the production society of Georges Lucas, father of the famous Star Wars saga. On October 30, 2012 it was announced that Lucasfilm would be acquired by Disney Company for US$4.05 billion. If many people are wondering if it’s a good idea or not, another (great?) news appeared. Episode 7,8 and 9 of Star Wars have been officialy announced. I’m not sure that I really want to see a « disney star wars » version but the fact is that Georges Lucas himself has allready planned it many many years before.

In 1979, however, Lucas said in an interview on the set of Empire, “The first script was one of six original stories I had written in the form of two trilogies. After the success of Star Wars, I added another trilogy. So now there are nine stories. The original two trilogies were conceived of as six films of which the first film was number four.”

Il ne reste donc plus qu’à attendre et voir ce que Disney va entreprendre et surtout, si la société va respecter les idées de Georges Lucas, notamment en conservant les acteurs d’origine, ce que le grand producteur avait prévu.

“You know, when I first did this, it was four trilogies,” Mark Hamill recalled in 2004, speaking of their conversation in 1976. “Twelve movies! Out on the desert, any time between setups… lots of free time. And George was talking about this whole thing… ‘Um, how’d you like to be in Episode IX?’ ‘When is that going to be?’ ‘2011.’ […] I said, ‘Well, what do you want me to do?’ He said, ‘You’ll just be like a cameo. You’ll be like Obi-Wan handing the lightsaber down to the next new hope.’”

 

So, wait & see?
