In 2012 Disney bought Lucasfilm lock, stock and barrel from George Lucas for an eye-watering $4.06bn, and it still remains an astonishing piece of business. For that Death Star-sized chunk of change the House of Mouse acquired the movie studio, its visual effects offshoot ILM, industry-leading audio pioneers Skywalker Sound, but most importantly the studio got their hands on all Lucasfilm IP (intellectual property) including the ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Indiana Jones’ franchises. Some hardcore fans expressed their concern over the commodification of their beloved ‘Star Wars’, but little could have prepared them for the true extent of Disney’s plans for the brand. There truly has never been a better time to be a ‘Star Wars’ fan.
