10 Rash Thoughts About Disney’s Acquisition of Lucasfilm

Out of nowhere, it was announced today that Disney acquired Lucasfilm AND have promised Star Wars Episode VII in 2015. A normal person would sleep on it, collect his/her thoughts and write an intelligent response to this shocking news.  I’m not normal and here are my initial thoughts:

  1. I could never imagine a world where Disney owned everything I loved as a child: Star Wars, Marvel Comics and the Muppets.
  2. Does this mean that Leia is now a Disney Princess?
  3. 2015 will give us the sequel to The Avengers, Justice League and now, a new Star Wars movie. Hopefully, movies won’t cost $25 per ticket by then.
  4. While I’m scared of a new Star Wars film, I’m excited to see the Star Wars cinematic universe out of the hands of George Lucas.
  5. I’m not looking forward to every geeky response to the casting of the Star Wars film.
  6. Disneyland/Disney World is about to become an even more awesome place.
  7. What the hell is going to be the plot of the next Star Wars film?
  8. What does this mean for the Indiana Jones franchise?
  9. What does this mean for Star Wars comics (currently published by Dark Horse) or the incredibly popular Clone Wars cartoon (distributed by Warner Brothers, airing on Cartoon Network)?
  10. Can we get a Pixar short with Wall-E, R2-D2 and C-3P0?

  1. Number 10 would be kind of amazing. And this pretty much solidifies us going to DIsneyland/World/Epcot.
