Not one, but two videos have popped up with George Lucas talking about sending his intellectual properties and sundry companies over to Disney.
First, from the Lucasfilm side of the street.
And then from the Disney side of the street:
Lucas is talking about 1) finding a home for his creations and 2) getting ready to do other things in his retirement. The odd thing is, when he talks about what to with Star Wars, it sounds a lot more like estate planning than retirement planning. Then again, Star Wars is probably bigger than Lucas and with all that Disney stock he picked up in the sale, it’s not like he won’t still have input on Disney’s business matters going forward if that’s what he wants.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
