NNNnnnnoooooooo....!!!! :o(


It's being reported all over the place that "Star Wars" creator George
Lucas has sold everything to Disney - all of his various companies
(LucasFilm, ILM, Skywalker Sound, LucasArts, etc.) and the entire Star
Wars franchise.

I can only guess that George Lucas was disappointed by the rather
lacklustre reception to the (frankly pointless and hopeless) 3D-erised
release of Episode I.

It remains to be seen what this means for the Clone Wars animated TV show,
the planned live-action TV show, the fifth Indiana Jones movies, and
everything else ... but the over-egoed, money-grubbers are already
planning a rushed, ill-fitting "Episode 7" movie (over-seen by Lucas) to
be released in 2015, followed by new Episode 8 and 9 movies every two
years. Another great franchise destroyed by Hollyweird. :o(

Disney's purchase of Lucasfilms today for $4 billion will likely mean
more "Star Wars" TV projects, says Disney CEO Bob Iger. "We really
like Star Wars’ potential on TV, and Disney XD would be a great home
for that," he says.

Translation:
"We really like Star Wars' potential to make us lots and lots of cash, and
we don't give a crap about the existing fans, the established franchise,
nor anything else," says Disney CEO Bob Iger.

It will be harder to say "Disney ruined my childhood" rather than "Lucas
ruined my childhood" by those who need to get a life.

You obviously haven't seen the 3D CGI versions of Mickey Mouse and Winnie

What kind of "Star Wars" TV shows will Disney develop?:
http://tvline.com/2012/11/01/star-wars-tv-series/

Now that Disney owns the "Star Wars" franchise, will we see a lot of
"Star Wars" TV shows — including the long-rumored live TV adaptation?

Disney seem to have massive plans for Star Wars. They're already talking
about about a new Trilogy and possibly more movies, more TV shows, more
merchandise, moving the comic books to Marvel (once Dark Horse's contract
runs out), more integration with their theme parks, etc., etc.

They'll resurrect "From All of Us, To All of You", and bump some classic
animation segment for a snippet from Star Wars.

I'd bet on a cartoon starring C3PO and R2D2, and probably that
monumnetally annoying creature from the fourth actual episode whose name,
thank heaven, escapes me.

It's Disney, so I expect Star Wars Chapter 7: Rescue from The Black
Hole.

They'd better start working on this one pretty soon. Yvette's getting
old, and Perkins is dead.

Have you seen John Carter?? ;-)

It depends on who they get to do the new movies (and reportedly the new
woman has said "two to three movies PER YEAR"!) and if they actually stick
to the facts and style already established by George Lucas.
