Too big even for Disney. Besides, gotta keep the Mickey/Bugs rivalry intact!  8)

rivalry you say?

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

I don't think that's always true. Wasn't Epic Mickey T?

Nope.

I remember the freaky ass "warm up" art for it. nowadays I kinda wish it did look like that art. That [parasitic bomb] was surreal to the max.

Well, according to Lucasfilm, the plot of Episode VII will be "entirely original".  There's a chance that it won't ride roughshod over established continuity, and with the original actors vying to get on board, they could very easily establish it forty years later, which would give them an opportunity to introduce a new Big Three, something that EU has been struggling to build.

Also... With Disney on board, there is a very good chance that we'll get high-quality unaltered OT releases on Blu-Ray and DVD.  They know that fans have been craving such releases for years, and Lucas himself had stood in the way of their releases (save for the DVD releases he had in 2002).  With Lucas out of the picture, we may finally see some digitally remastered releases of the unaltered OT.  That would be an early money-maker for Disney and they would be wise to go that route.

I have faith in Disney. Im very curious to see how this all turns out.

 Although it is sad that I feel they could probably make a better Star Wars movie than George Lucas.

Since Disney had a hand in the Avengers, then I trust that what they make would be pretty damn good. 

I'm just saddened that this happened.  It felt like the death of the EU.  It felt like Disney kicked in my door, burned my entire collection, tied me to a chair, and forced me to watch.

I mean, they have yet to do anything, and yet you make it out to be a huge tragedy.
For all we know, they will keep everything intact.

I dont get the reaction, like he said, they will most likely keep everything intact, just ADD to it with a new trilogy. IDK. If they give me the originals uncut unedited? im all for that.

Ever thought this might be a win-win after all?  o~O

Fox MIGHT still own some of the rights, as well as Disney. Remember, who made the trilogy and went through HELL to get these movies out? The guy with the chin. Even lucas feels that 1~3 doesn't feel right and doesn't acknowledge Star Wars Holiday Special. At All (like X6 and Keiji Inafune, it was made behind his back, and InfaKing doesn't feel right about SAR).

It's a huge licensing battle after all.

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

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

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

The Holiday Special is one of those things that are so bad that they're good.  I give out copies as gifts, and the friends who have received the DVDs loved it.  Of course, we will never see an official release of it, ever.  Not even Disney would let us have one.  But, that's why we have bootlegs!

Fox does not own the rights anymore.  Else, they would have produced the Clone Wars movie.  If you recall, no Fox fanfare for that one.  Time Warner owned the production rights at the time.

That's the movie.  It was originally to be three premiere episodes, but the decision was made to combine all three and release it into theaters.  It was met with a rather frosty reception.  The theater was practically empty when I went to see it.

I should really change the title.

As its no longer "Disney is going to buy Lucasfilm" So much as "Disney has bought LucasFilm."

The highlighted bit.

The source of the highlighted bit.

Hm.

That edit's been rolled back, as Pollock had a public falling out with Lucas after the release of the biography, so take it with a grain of salt.

A really big grain.
