Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars...

Recommended Posts

Disney has done right by Pixar and Marvel, so this cannot be bad.

It could also mean a new Indiana Jones franchise!

Lucas is no longer in complete control over the universe. This is gonna be VERY interesting.

On the other hand, it could mean more Jar Jar.

I tThis also says that Lucas will only be a consultant, and that Kathleen Kennedy will be the executive producer. Let me remind you she was one of the executive producers behind amazing movies like Roger Rabbit, Back to the Future, ET, the first three Indiana Jones, etc. Then again, she was also the executive producer in some so so and some bad movies.

I actually have high hopes for this. With Lucas out of the director's and hopefully the writer's chair, maybe they'll bring in good people that can actually make a good movie.

FUCK YES!

This is unbelievably awesome. As someone who's been a lifelong obsessed Star Wars fan, I couldn't be more happy about this.

One thing to note: Lucasfilm wasn't "bought out;" Lucas is purposely handing control of the company over to Kennedy and Disney.

Pretty cool news, I now want to see mash ups like people did after the Marvel purchase.

Would be amazing if they could score a big name director that would want the challenge / risk.

Due to the Star Tours ride at Disney World, mash-ups already exist and can be purchased.

I'm still trying to find an answer but there's a bigger reason that Disney is making out like a bandit here: unless it gets spun-off into its own entity as part of the deal, Disney now owns ILM.

This means that Mickey Mouse/Han Solo/Captain America teamup I wrote as a kid is technically possible....

YOUR MOVE, IGER.

In unrelated but undeniably awesome news, the little girl who was bullied for being a Star Wars fan received her own set of stormtrooper armor from the 501st.

Don't get excited just yet. Disney bought the treatments for three SW movies as part of this deal. Treatments likely penned by George Lucas.

I would LOVE to see the Admiral Thrawn Trilogy, though it brings up something else. All those authors of the SW novels were pretty much safe knowing Lucas would never turn one of their stories into a film because he's too close to the franchise to allow that kind of creative control. Bet they're all a little freaked out right now, now that there is a treasure trove of content with which Disney can make billions of dollars on movie ticket sales alone without having to buy the rights to the pre-created stories.
