Lucas will probably have a lot more time on his hands to spend with his newborn, having sold his production company, Lucasfilm Ltd., to the Walt Disney Company for $4.05 billion last October. He is expected to continue making contributions to the films that Disney acquired with the purchase, including the upcoming Star Wars re-boot, which is being helmed by Star Trek director JJ Abrams. Filming on the Star Wars Episode VII is expected to begin in 2014.
