Will Dark Horse lose publishing rights for Star Wars?

I just realized, Disney owned their own comics publishing even before they bought Marvel. Will we see Star Wars comics move away from Dark Horse to Marvel?

At the moment Dark Horse gets to keep the rights, this might not last though.

For the moment, I think Dark Horse keeps the rights to publish Star Wars comics. Though when Marvel was bought by Disney, they eventually became the publishers of the Disney comics when Boom! Studios previously had the rights to publishing Disney comics. So in time Dark Horse might lose them.

Hmm, so this is a similar situation to the TV show on Cartoon Network, where the current contract holds but once it runs out, that's it?

@fodigg: We could probably assume so. I haven't been able to find anything suggesting that Disney plans on doing this though.
