Not a joke. They paid over $4 BILLION for it, and they will be coming out with Star Wars Episodes 7, 8, and 9 to start.

TFS Dave saw the donnybrook on the RPF Rolling Eyes very funny, 'cause I care only about ANH and ESB (original version of course).
All kinds of speculations abound and since we cannot predict the future...I'm circling the airport in the mean time Wink

When the Ewoks were introduced in ROTJ that was the end for me. Disney is systematically eliminating it's competition by buying it up. Lucasfilm, Pixar, Marvel Entertainment, Muppets, and so on. In regards to George Lucas, may I coin a phrase from ANH:
"If money is all that you love, then that's what you'll receive."

I hated the Ewoks. Furry critters, outside of Chewy, don't belong in sci fi. JarJar was another waste.

Star Wars was already Disneyfied in my mind. At least they didn't ruin the Pixar stuff, so who knows? It might do better out of Lucas's hands.

"I've got a bad feeling about this!" . . I think Han said it best, but I wonder . . .

What will this mean to collecting? To the more serious side of fandom?

I sense a disturbance in The Force . . . and a mouse in the house! Confused

Time will tell. - R13

WBAT?

What does that mean?

The 4 billion is what Disney paid for Lucasfilm....
