Actually, 4 billion, not 40 billion.
That's about how much they bought Marvel for, right? All the movies they've made since then I think have been pretty good, So I'm not too worried about the next 3 Star Wars movies, unless of corse they get a sucky director (I hope not.) IMO the prequels were ok, but Anakin was too whiny mostly in the middle, Obi-Wan looked a bit too young to later turn into an old man in just 19 years, and Jar Jar Binks.... No... just... no....
But I think they saw all the rage they got from the prequels (again, I have nothing against the prequels) so the sequels have to be at least a bit better. I don't know, maybe it's just because I can't be all "oh fuck you George Lucas you ruined my childhood" because I didn't have much interest in Star Wars until just recently, actually. But I'm just saying this from the point of view of a person who saw all six movies at once, so I see it all as one movie series, not two. It's kind of weird to think of a seventh movie, because I can never really think of much of a plot after Darth vader and Palpatine and Ben (characters of all six movies) die, Luke becomes a Jedi and the Death stars go kablamo. I guess it's gonna be interesting to see.
And yes, Leia is now a Disney princess.
