    Interesting Thread from 2006 that Discusses an Acquisition of Lucasfilm

    The discussion includes a consideration of Lucas, himself, as a new hope in reforming Disney's toxic organizational culture and incestuous corporate governance, if, of course, the deal would include an equity position for the filmmaker and potentially a seat on the board.

    Walt Disney is dead. Jim Henson is dead. Steve Jobs is dead. The Pixar people have mostly been a bust. George Lucas may be one of the last individuals that can exert a countervailing force on the direction The Walt Disney Company has taken over the last 18 years.

    How long is the Disney/Lucas deal?

    Yeah, well too bad Lucas isn't buying Disney. It's the other way around.
