George Lucas has sold Lucasfilm, which owns the Star Wars franchise, to Disney for $4 billion. And not only that: "Disney said it planned to release a new Star Wars film, episode seven, in 2015. That will be followed by episodes eight and nine and then one new movie every two or three years, the company said."
Mr Lucas said: "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of film-makers."
He added: "I've really ruined it as much as I can. Now it's time for someone else to put their own stamp of garbage ruination on it!"

I mean, he probably said that. Whatever.

Iain emailed this news to me under the subject line: "THRAWN. THRAWN. THRAWN. THRAWN. THRAWN. THRAWN. THRAWWWWNNNN!!!‏" And the entirety of his message was: "They had beter be using Thrawn or I will be PISSED, lol."

Admiral Thrawn, by the way, is a character from the Star Wars novels. He is terrible, and, in a lot of artists' renderings, basically looks like a blue Mitt Romney.

Here is Iain's favorite YouTube video about him. It currently has 3,223 views. Three thousand of those are probably Iain's.

Video Description: "A Romantic Tribute to Grand Admiral Thrawn." Pictures of Admiral Thrawn, set to "Deliver Me" by Sarah Brightman. Obviously.
