That is right, isn't it?

Kinda weird, you tend to forgot that Pixar was once a part of Lucasfilm.

Though this also means ILM, Skywalker Sound, and all those places will be part of Disney now.

Which means any movie that uses those companies nowadays will have been worked on by Disney.
That sounds like a Monopoly.

Now that you mention it, anyone who uses those studios will have to work under the Disney banner (Or else you gotta make the sounds yourself when you make a movie). Which also means the logos and such would have to be altered in those studios to meet "disney's demands". That's a bit of a HUUUGE gamble on Disney's part though, which also means Cartoon Network might have to give up the Clone Wars and Spike will have to get permission to host all star wars films on that channel (or disney might start hosting all of them on DisneyXD). And possible inclusion in the next KH story after the Ansem Saga.

This is making my head spin.

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

A friend just told me that Lucas is not writing or directing Episode VII.

Now I'm excited.  8D

The writer and director had better not be Filoni.

Else I'll will be on the plane to the studio, torch in hand.

All we need is for Warner Bros. to buy Star Trek from Viacom and we can have a nerd war of epic proportions.

In that case, also have them buy hasbro and let the ultimate tug-of-war begin, if they are starting to buy more well-known properties. Will Fox cover this media war? naaaaah.

apparently in the process of this, Lucas Arts was also bought out.

I'd like to think by some irrational and baseless logic that this increases the possibility of another Jedi Knight game instead of some half-assed Force Unleashed or whatever else. I can dream ok? ;;

I actually just see LucasArts getting merged into Disney Interactive.

Leia has to be taller and her face has to be thinner to be compared to the Princesses.

I know it wasn't you who drew it, I'm just saying the contrast is there.  Then again imagining Leia as a Disney Princess is difficult and really shouldn't be done.

It depends on who they pick as a writer and what they do.  Lucas does have a vague script and plot in mind, and it's possible that they may go with that.  But, again, who knows?  Some people are hoping for the Thrawn Trilogy to be made into movies.

My thoughts exactly, though I will not forgive them if they screw up Talon or Mara.
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

Yeah, because they were part of Lucas's "original vision."  ::)

Sorry Lucas.  You can't use that line anymore.

Oh, and there's this quote from Lucas's interview, supplied to us by Leland Chee.



It gives me a new hope.

And on that note, I'm getting my ass to bed.

Warner Bros. owns DC, so no chance of that

I'm also worried that Disney will go their "we own this, YOU NO TOUCH" route and start cracking down on fan productions.

Even if they do go that route, the same thing happened earlier with Star Trek. Want to know how they got around it? Parody.

If this happens, kiss all T-Rated Star Wars games goodbye. Disney's rule when it comes to gaming? Keep everything rated E and low-quality. And games like Battlefront and Galactic Battlegrounds are some of the best damn Star Wars games I've played in my time.

I don't think that's always true. Wasn't Epic Mickey T? And regardless, we're talking about a company that has invested in pornography. There's a time and a place for everything.
