PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – George Lucas has passed the Star Wars torch to a new generation after selling his Lucas Films company to Disney.

Thanks to the move, we will be seeing new Star Wars movies as early as 2015, a possible Star Wars theme park, and there might be other possible Lucas franchises like Indiana Jones returning from the house of mouse.

KDKA-AM’s Larry and John talk to Dr. Robert Thompson, TV and Pop Culture Expert, about the impact of Disney buying Star Wars and other Lucas Films franchises.
