    First Marvel and now Star Wars. They really do want to own everyone's childhood.

    Blame going directly to George Lucas because he's Satan in human form in 3,2,1...

    Wow, didn't see this coming. Ep 7 eh? Knew this would come eventually, though.

    I have a feeling it'll be much better without Lucas at the helm. I'd still like to see him involved, but he needs people to tell him when an idea sucks. Plus, his writing... meh.

    Don't forget the Muppets, by the way...

    I never thought I'd see the day George Lucas sells of his baby. And Star Wars Episode 7?! Wow. Talking about a bag of mixed feelings.

    Oh sweet jesus no.


    No... wait... I'd feel worse if Lucasfilm had produced anything of value in the last 20 years. Sucks about the back catalog though.



    I guess they have complementary ideas regarding intellectual property and merchandising, Lucasfilm should fit right into the Disney Empire (and already has in the past, to some degree).

    What's the problem? Star Wars is for nerds anyway.

    Think of the money both companies can save in merging their "our intellectual property shouldn't be allowed to lapse into the public domain" cases!

    It isn't. It's real.

    I'll always have my Original Trilogy.

    Wonder what this means for 3D rereleases though.

    OH FUCK, CLONE WARS! Bet they'll cancel it like Spectacular Spiderman.
