McCallum is definitely out.

Jesse James:
I'll never forget his hype surrounding every Prequal film.  There's no way he honestly believed a lot of what he was saying.

How Disney Bought LFL

Really interesting story there.  Fills in a lot of details about just when Lucas decided to get the band back together for Episode 7, when Disney came on board, etc.  Definitely a good read.

I'm not an investment banker, but it looks like Disney got a steal compared to what they paid for Pixar and Marvel.  They paid $7 billion and $4 billion for Pixar and Marvel, respectively, while paying $4 billion for Lucasfilm. 

Page 3 of the article shows the cash flows at the three companies at the time of purchase and Lucasfilm generates significantly more operating income than Marvel.
