Was just thinking that myself an chuckling
Hey Star Wars and IJA were bought by Disney and put in the park. Sacrilege!
Couldnt be any worse than 1-3 lol
Also a top story on TMZ ya'll
Disney Buys Lucasfilm for $4 BILLION -- NEW STARS WARS ANNOUNCED | TMZ.com
Above picture was released by D23
that's a lot of money $4.05 Billion in cash and stock :O they could redo DCA almost 4 times.
Can we fast track a third park now Lucas and marvel park
Maybe George can spring for the CM Xmas party and to keep the watch shop open.
Please release the original theatrical Star Wars, Disney!
On top of just being the purchase of LucasFilm and all business units (Skywalker Sound, ILM, etc)... Disney is releasing Star Wars 7 in 2015. That is straight from the TWDC webpage. Plan on releasing films every several years branching out into the wider Star Wars universe. Guarantee you this is the precursor to a Star Wars land somewhere.
Listening to the investor conference call right now.
This is AMAZING News ... and here's why.
- Lucas has proven over the past decade+ that he no longer has "it". If Episodes I, II, III weren't enough, Indy 4 and Red Tails should have convinced anybody else. If you look at the video game division (where Lucas was more hands-off) you can see the potential talent that is there
- This now paves the way, with Lucas no longer involved, to get the original trilogy (non special editions) on Blu Ray (hopefully this wasn't part of the deal)
- This also paves the way for Star Wars Land at DHS, no CarsLand 2. This is the ONLY thing that will be a Potter killer
- Star Wars 7 ... this will not be like the Prequel trilogy. Disney has proven with Marvel their willingness to work with top-quality talent. I can tell you right now the Geek-Trust at Marvel is salivating with anticipation to get their hands on the Star Wars or Indy franchises.
This definitely puts to rest the old "non-Disney properties" of Star Wars / Indiana Jones in the parks arguments...
Well if George Lucas is happy and believes that his legacy will live on with TWDC I don't mind.
He might fight for the CM Xmas party but I don't think he would be bothered by such a small section of Disneyland like the watch painting station.
See ya walkin' right down the middle of ol' Main Street USA
