Who owns the first six now? Is the real question I think.
Deadline has a string of updates on this and it's not a hundred per cent clear at the moment but it appears that this deal gives Disney almost everything, though they allude to some 'encumberances' with Fox over the first films (which to me could be just the first trilogy or not) and with Paramount over 'Indiana Jones' though Disney currently claims it has less interest in Indy just now as Paramount still has some rights connected to him.
However, the claim is now that there are already three more SW films mapped out, so this must have been getting very secretly planned for a while.
