Disney to sell Pixar, Lucasfilm games at $4 billion: Report

Disney and Lucasfilm are about to sell off Pixar and LucasFilm games at a record $4.9 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The deals would bring the combined companies to about $20 billion, including $4,700 million in cash.

The Disney-Lucasfilm deal is the biggest since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2009.

The deal would include more than a dozen Lucasfilm titles including Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars Episode VII: The Last Jedi, and Star Wars X-Men: Days of Future Past, as well as several Disney games.

Disney would also acquire LucasArts, which owns the video game company and has been publishing the Star Wars and Marvel franchises for nearly 30 years.

The Journal reported that Disney and its chief financial officer, Michael Lynton, are expected to announce the deals later this week.

The Wall Street report did not say when Disney and Sony would announce the sale.

The two companies have been working on deals in recent years to get more games into the hands of gamers, who are more likely to spend on them.

The companies are also planning to release their first Star Wars game in 2019.
