/// The Math Behind Disney’s Star Wars Deal
Disney is paying George Lucas $4 billion for his Star Wars empire. Did it get a good deal?

It’s a tricky bit of guesstimating, because the people who were young enough to be wowed by Lucas’ first installment when it debuted in 1977, are now oldsters who are 40 and much older. And many of those same people [cough] despise the last three movies he put out.
