Disney buys out LucasFilms

As if Hurricane Sandy ( <---- post from earlier this morning) wasn't bad enough.

LucasFilms bought out by Disney.

Some Thoughts:

1. Prospect of Eps. 7, 8, & 9 of the Star Wars trilogy. Meh. Lucas will still be providing creative support which is pretty much what was wrong with Eps. 1, 2, & 3. I'm tentatively curious, but not overly excited as of yet.

1. Leia is not a Disney Princess. I realize she is a princess, and that Disney now owns the rights to her name, but give me a break. She's a rebel leader. She wouldn't let the Galactic Empire rule her and the Disney Empire won't be any different.

I know. 

I need something other then the devastation of my city to think about, so I'll probably update this post periodically as I think of things.

What are your thoughts?

  1. I miss Willow. -As far as the Disney buyout, all I can say is it is not possible to make a star wars movie worse episode 1.

    1. Cheers to that. I'm hoping that since they're making a sequel trilogy, then maybe they'll reboot the first 3 too haha.

  2. Ironic really, as many would attest that Walt Disney is reminiscent of an evil empire, hell bent on taking over the world. Why not start with arguably the most popular movie saga such as Star Wars? Take out the head and the body will crumble. You go Mr. Disney. You capitalist pig!

    1. Disney may have intellectual property rights, but Leia was not created as a Disney Princess to be a Disney Princess. She's a Princess that now falls under the World Empire that is Disney. And we all know how that ended for the Emperor last time.

      Heehee, I just with Lucas would leave it the hell alone and let Disney take over completely.

  3. I agree wholeheartedly. It may be blasphemous to say but Lucas needs to step completely away. His creativity waved bye bye to him during the making of episode one.


Leave me a comment! It makes me feel good and less paranoid about talking to myself =)
