The seventh movie, with a working title of "Episode 7," is set for release in
2015. Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The new trilogy will carry the story of Luke
Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond "Return of the Jedi," the third
film released and the sixth in the saga. After that, Disney plans a new "Star
Wars" movie every two or three years. Lucas will serve as creative consultant in
the new movies.

Lucas could never direct worth a crap, but his vision compensated. I can only imagine improvements to the deliverables with this news.
