Holy F------ S---!
The Force was certainly strong for the Walt Disney Company as they just bought Lucasfilm Ltd from George Lucas for $4.05 Billion (from The Hollywood Reporter.com). The Mouse House now owns not only Star Wars but Indiana Jones as well.
This news is shocking. Just shocking. I don't know how to feel about it. What do we have to look forward to, new shorts with Mickey Mouse AND Jar Jar Binks?
Star Wars is a huge part of my scifi DNA. Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back are PERFECT movies. You can have your Ewoks and your Jar Jar and your Prequels.
Disney says to expect a NEW Star Wars movie in three years. One suggestion: get Steven Spielberg to direct it.
