Hi, Fred! I know you're a huge Disney fan, but we don't have to have that same "putting it under the same ownership" passage every time. On occasion it's fine, but after awhile it becomes rather like saying "Bugs Bunny is owned by Warner Bros. which distributed Follow That Bird." Either people already know that or it's easily found out by just clicking the link, and it's just like we don't have to note it on every single Marvel character page. On the Lucas page, where it's written in more of a narrative sense, it works better, but on Star Wars, it's just awkward.

Frankly, looking around, we should take it off pages like The Incredible Hulk (where I'd missed or forgotten it was there), since we note the ownership on Marvel Comics. We don't note that for every ESPN sportscaster or current Disney-produced ABC show, and we shouldn't. One note on the main company page is sufficient, or in this case, since we don't have nor need a Lucasfilm page, on George Lucas. The note on Star Wars is mostly just because right now people are Googling the sale (and to clean-up a user who added it to the first sentence and implied Disney now owns the original movies, an issue which has not yet been clarified or decided; in fact a quick Google confirmed that Fox definitely still owns the first movie).
