starwarscastlucasBloomberg Businessweek has published a new feature on Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm which includes a few interesting bits!

George Lucas tells them that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford were pretty much signed on for Star Wars: Episode VII before the Disney deal was even made.

“We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation,” Lucas said. “So I called them to say, ‘Look, this is what’s going on.'” He pauses. “Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them.” Then he adds: “I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not.”

As was previously announced, the studio is also developing standalone movies and Disney’s Bob Iger also said he’s looking to expand sales of “Star Wars” merchandise overseas and that ABC and Lucasfilm are discussing a live-action TV series.
