    What if Disney bought LucasFilms Ltd.?

    What if in an alternate dimension where George Lucas wasn't so adament about his copyrighted and created work, that Disney decided to buy the Star Wars and Indiana Jones licenses?

    I mean it only makes sense since they have rides, merchandise and even shows and events all dedicated to Star Wars and a lot of Lucas' franchises.

    What would the Pro's and Con's be of the aquisition? Would Disney be making a lot more money than they are now? Could you imagine Episodes VII - X of Star Wars with the Disney castle logo instead of 20th Century Fox?

    The pro would be that they would own the rights to Star Wars IV, V and VI.
    The con would be that they would own the rights to Star Wars I, II and III.

    Like you said, Lucas is far too protective of his work (even though the Star Wars original trilogy was much more a collaborative effort than he'd ever admit) to ever sell it.

    It would be a plum acquisition for Disney. And if Lucas was going to sell his company to anyone I'd bet that Disney would be at the top of a very short list. But he will never sell. Not while he's alive. After he's gone all bets are off.

    The Clone Wars cartoon series could be done with the Pixar technique.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    I think Tomorrowland would become Star Wars land (part of that is me being honest and sarcastic). I know a good portion of it already is, but I'm pretty sure a lot more would be. I'll let you decide if you would be happy or mad if that could be a reality.

    We'd be looking at Episodes I-III and complaining, "It's Not What George Would Have Done".

    It'd make a lot of sense. With the exception of Howard the Duck.

    I doubt that woukd happen but if it did, perhaps a possible separate theme park based on the Star Wars Universe.

    Umm if Disney bought Lucas Films, wouldn't it be like 30 years too late to get a really good price? I'm just sayin'...
