I thought Kennedy, after being installed as LFL head, was pushing George to let "LFL" make the ST? I mean, what good is a CEO that doesn't want to expand the business? George and Kathleen brought in Michael Arndt like late 2011 or early 2012 to starting writing the treatments. This is information now starting to come to light publicly. Whether or not George was already planning to sell before that point is up to conjecture. Disney comes in later in the timeline. I disagree with the idea there would not be anymore movies without the Disney purchase. It's becoming clear that Lucasfilm, as a company, was indeed moving forward. Yes, George wouldn't have directed them, someone else selected by them would have. Still, I think it was more a matter of George's psychological health to sell the company. When the new movies were made, he knew he would not be able to stay away. The realization that his last good years in this world would be filled with stressing over creating, "Star Wars". Lucas would have wound up producing, writing and still been heavily involved the next ten years. He sold out to get a respectable distance away, yet still available for a consult when necessary. I can totally understand and appreciate his decision. As far as the new flicks are concerned...?
