    Don't mind me. I'm just pretending not to know what you are talking about.

    A galaxy-wide empire doesn't cease to exist overnight because you kill two men and blow up one space station.

    This was my gut reaction. Star Wars is something inexpressibly dear to me, and it makes me uncomfortable when people fuck with it.

    But in truth, nobody is fucking with Star Wars. I have digital copies of the old trilogy it in all it's original glory. Disney will produce tangentially related films which have the Star Wars name on them. Maybe they will suck and maybe they won't. But it's none of my concern either way, because the originals are safe in my care.

    Doesn't this mean Disney has control over Indiana Jones too?

    I hope Disney doesn't do to Starwars's lore what Blizz has done to WoW's lore.

    I'm not entirely sure that's true. I was under the impression that Paramount had a stake in Indiana Jones.

    On a conference call with shareholders they expressed some doubt that an Indiana Jones film would come about, citing potential pitfalls with Paramount which holds distribution rights.

    I'd rather have it in Disney's hands. That Disney bought it doesn't bother me. That they're going to make three more movies. That scares me.

    All I can envision when I hear this news is the South Park that was done in response to the "new" Indiana Jones movie. It was filled with scenes of Lucas and Spielberg raping Indy.

    This time Ole George will be raping along side Mickey.

    If Disney treats LucasFilm similar to how they treat Marvel, I don't see how this is necessarily a bad thing.

    yes; I was wondering that myself. I don't know if any new SW film will be worth it now but at least George gets to retire with even more loot in his wallet.....

    I'm sure they could make a decent film.

    I just think it's really dumb and totally unnecessary.
    can't we leave things alone? does Star Wars need more "official" installments?

    if they want to work on the expanded universe they can through the outlets they've already been using; children's/young adults literature, the made-for-TV movies, the cartoons, etc.

    It's like a bad dream...

    I almost threw up in my mouth when I saw this.

    As bad as Lucas has been for the last 20 years, of all the people he had to sell out to it was Disney?!
