Disney Buys Lucasfilm for $4B, Episode 7 in 2015

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please tell me this is a joke! Bad enough Disney owns the franchise but a new episode on top of all of this! I think I'm gonna be sick, hasn't he made enough money already? Someone better let those poor chaps on the east coast know... :(

    It's a trap!!!

    As soon as I found out something inside of me died. I hope this doesn't breach the LEGO contract. If they stop making LEGO Star Wars sets then I have nothing left to live for. Also they can't kill the Clone Wars episodes or I might die on the spot.

    So.....does that mean the Empire finally won?!?

    I really dont get why people think this would be a bad idea? Gaining Pixar etc has showed us that Disney understand 'brand extension', I mean spending four big jimmys is not something you consider lightly. I think they're going to make good, IMHO.

    "I really dont get why people think this would be a bad idea?"

    It's the over reaction basic of the bandwagon jumping mob mentality idiots who can't see past "someone bought my SW, waaaa".

    Truth is, SW is a brand that is sold out to the lowest bidder for any form of franchise. We have yoda on mobile phone adverts, xwing ice cubes, super deformed vaders for kiddies. It's a brand so diluted it's lost it's integrity. - and I say that as one of it's biggest fans and I'm in the 501st FFS!

    No, I think it will be good, breath new life into it. It sure didn't hurt marvel.

    Hobo' <-- what this guy said

    I'm just hoping Disney will put the non-special-edition OT on Bluray. That would be nice.

    Right on, Marvel only came right cos Disney knew what to do, they've got plenty time to correct all pre Lucas errors like hiring awesome actors and slapping with cheesy one liners.
  • Stormbringer. PRO 3y

    It's all a joke, a sick joke... I find it hilarious how Disney decided to reveal the news right after Storm Sandy.. One disaster at a time!!
  • Stormbringer. PRO 3y

    : VolumeX : And don't forget more Jar Jars!

    Kaleb Batenburg-Jones I heard a rumor on twitter that because of this impact the Clone Wars animated TV show might be affected too.

    Word has it that now that Disney own SW, the Clone Wars will be pulled from Cartoon Network and will be shown on the Disney Channel. Oh, and there's a good chance the violence will be cut down to meet Disney-age audiences.
  • Steelharbinger PRO 3y

    ^ You know, I just don't get it. I mean... really? Your particular complaint here, is that Disney will cancel the Clone Wars, and cut down the "violence". And this is the show, which refers to R2-D2, as artooie, has slapstick battle droids, and as far as I recall... very little in the way of actual violence...
  • Ian King 3y

    No thanks. I'll just take my Tartovski series, Original Trilogy, Battlefront, and Knights of the Old Republic.
  • Stormbringer. PRO 3y

    Steelharbinger It's just a rumor I heard.
  • JP R. 3y

    Heck, if they make Battlefront 3, and it isn't crap, I'd say that's success enough.
  • Nick C. is not my actual name. 3y

    Episode 7 by Disney? This sounds very fun - probably about the new post-Endor Jedi Order and stuff, I'd expect, with some fun cameos... can't wait, since it can't be any worse than the prequels.
  • Peter Morris PRO 3y

    Timothy Zahn's work is the best of the EU stuff, and it's barely passable science fiction. The amount of goofy movie references was nauseating to me even when I was young and stupid.

    If Disney wants to succeed, they need to go in a different direction and crate their own stories. If Bioware can do it before they were corrupted by EA, then surely Disney can do it.
  • Justin Stebbins 3y

    Peter Morris Timothy Zahn made Goofy Movie references? The man must have had a premonition! :o
