Numerous other sources are posting this as of today as well, so check out all the news sites you can.
Disney plans on producing 3... THREE... more Star Wars movies as well as numerous additional entertainment based on the near infinite universe that is Star Wars. One thing that was announced was a new movie every 2 to 3 years!
Here's hoping we see less of Jar-Jar... which I doubt. And I'm sure you can add Leia to the list of Disney Princesses now too.
