Star Wars creator George Lucas informed Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher about plans to film three more sequels prior to selling Lucasfilm to Disney, according to reports.
 

Mentioned only was the possibility for more movies, according to reports. No plans for including the actors was broached.
 
"What a shock it [the sale] was," Hamill told Entertainment Weekly. "He did tell us last summer about wanting to go on and do VII, VIII and IX, and that Kathleen Kennedy would be doing them."
 
"When he said, 'We decided we're going to do Episodes VII, VIII, and IX,' I was just gobsmacked,"" Hamill continued. "'What? Are you nuts?!'"
 
Lucas's sale of Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion was announced this week. The sale should be finalized by the end of the year. Lucas has said he plans to put "the bulk of the" money into a foundation for education, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
