I've been meaning to post this but haven't made the time to do so until now. Throttle back on your pod racers people, this deal ain't done yet though I don't think there is any reason to believe it won't be. Although the U.S. FTC cleared Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm earlier this month the European Commission has yet to render a decision
but apparently has to say something by December 21. The commission apparently will either approve the purchase on or before December 21 or will announce an extension of the review period. I don't know if the deal has to be approved by any other regulatory bodies but if not then it looks like chances are good that Disney will close on this deal by the end of the year. It's almost official but not quite yet.
