Back on track, Lucas has said he is donating the entirety of his $4.05 billion dollars that he received for selling Lucasfilm to Disney toward education.

Folks may think he screwed up his own movies, but Lucas also revolutionized film making and turned it on its ear by setting such a high mark, back in the day. Now, he's done the same with philanthropy. He's set a high mark for the wealthy to actually do something RIGHT for once.

I am cautiously optimistic on Disney's Purchase maybe fresh eyes is what Star Wars needs.

Yes, I do think this has the potential to be very good for Star Wars. We'll have to wait and see how it goes.

I'm sure it's on Disney's list.
