Well, more like he owns them but you get the point. this has been posted everywhere so I’ll add my two cents.
In case you haven’t heard, Disney has recently bought all rights to Star Wars, ALL RIGHTS to Lucasfilm from George Lucas for 4 Billion Dollars. Kinda weird since they bought Pixar for more than that. Along with this major shocker, an immediate announcement was made that production has begun on Star Wars: Episode 7, which is set for a 2015 release.
I’m honestly fine with this. George has pretty much tarnished the legendary original trilogy (4-6) enough with the unnecessary editing, and most of the prequels are considered blasphemies in the eyes of the fandom. Maybe Disney can take the long anticipated sequel fans have yearned for ages. Either that or they’ll add Star Wars characters to Kingdom Hearts 3 with an epic tag battle between Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine against Master Yoda and King Mickey.
For all the naysayers, keep this in mind. The studios that worked on the majority of terrible direct to video sequels of many Disney Animated classics has closed its doors. Also, while Disney owns a portion of Marvel Studios, they have yet to screw with the source material. In short, lighten up because nothing bad has happened yet, and hopefully won’t. I’m pretty excited for episode 7, it’s definitely better than releasing the Completely Edited Saga…AGAIN, in 3D.
Admit it, you’d pay to either see or play this scenario.
