Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger and George Lucas break down their new deal.

Conspicuously unmentioned is in all this news is Lucas’ Producer Rick McCallum. Is he out? is the dark Star Wars TV series he was deep in planning still alive?
RM has been retired for a while now.
One of the first things out of Iger’s mouth: Star Wars is FAMILY entertainment.
Good thing, that Deadwood idea was the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of. Star Wars should be Star Wars. Disney knows how to manage a brand.
Remember, George: You said you plan to work with WRITERS on the new films. You know those guys and gals that know how to structure a story, trim the fat and write human-sounding dialogue?
Say it with me now, Georgie.
Now that you’re retired, will you take off that 50s bouffant hairpiece? You’re not part wookie, man, keep it real.
Would LOVE to know who the writers are they have been talking to for Episodes 7-9!
The thing that scares me the most “the stories that I intended them to be…”. But in the end its all about who is sitting in the director’s chair.
I hope this video is a harbinger of Episodes 7 through 9 to come. At last, the darkness, tension and existential dread that fans have longed for, combined with the aesthetic of an Al Qaeda hostage video. Great performances–seems like the two leads have guns pointed at them off-screen. Those curtains in the background just scream David Lynch. Love it!
Dear Mr. Iger:
Can YOU please release the untouched versions of Episodes IV – VI?

Am I wrong or doesn’t Lucasfilm own the rights to Indiana Jones?
If so then why isn’t this being mentioned as well?
