    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.
