ABC discusses creating Star Wars TV shows
Aug 6, 2013
ABC is working with Lucasfilm to create TV shows based on the Star Wars characters. Paul Lee, president of Disney's ABC Entertainment Group, said, "We've started conversations with them. I have an inkling in my mind, but they have a lot on their plate." The Disney Co. purchased Lucasfilm in October 2012 for the price of $4.1 billion. A new Star Wars film is scheduled for 2015 and after that, a new film should come out every two to three years.
ABC is also working on utilizing their other recent purchase; Marvel Entertainment was purchased for $4.2 billion in 2009. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will air this fall on ABC.
