Relax fanboys…

George Lucas

“When I said there would be no more Star Wars movies what I meant was…uh…that I wouldn’t make any more. I never said NOBODY would make any more.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This is kind of old news, but I don’t get to write as often as I once did so I’m just getting to this now.  Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas for $4 billion.  They announced that they will be releasing a new Star Wars trilogy with the first movie expected in 2015 (take THAT Mayans…).

Wow.  I did not see that coming.

At first I was torn about this news.  What would Disney do to Star Wars?  Would it be watchable?  Would they ruin it?  Then I realized a few things:

  1. Pirates of the Caribbean kicks ass…and Disney made it.
  2. Chronicles of Narnia is pretty damned good, too.  And Disney made the first two movies.
  3. Disney couldn’t do any more damage to Star Wars than George Lucas did in the past 15 years (Greedo shooting first and Jar Jar Binks come readily to mind).
  4. Disney bought Marvel and the first movie released afterward was The Avengers, which is easily the best comic book movie made to date in my opinion.

Despite these things, fanboys and Star Wars fans are afraid of what Disney is going to do to the franchise.  However, the more I hear about it, the less worried I am.  Disney is not replacing anyone who works for Lucasfilm.  Lucasfilm will continue to operate as it always has except that it is now owned by Disney instead of George Lucas.  Per a Yahoo article:

Kathleen Kennedy, the current co-chairman of Lucasfilm, will become the division’s president at Disney and report to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn. She will serve as executive producer for the new movies.

Control of the franchise will remain with people who have been involved with the franchise, so I ‘m not quite sure why people are freaking out about Disney “ruining” the franchise.  I’ve wanted more movies for years and Disney will give them to us.  Let’s, as fans, be thankful for that.

Even Disney knows better than to put Justin Bieber in a Star Wars movie. Unless the plan for him to be killed gruesomely at some point in the movie.

  1. It’s no surprise to me that Disney bought him out. They own everything else in the world. Hell, they bought me just last summer.

    • I’m excited that we’ll finally have someone in control of the franchise who actually wants to put more stuph out and not sit there with a tight lid on it screaming (in a Yoda voice), “MINE, MINE, MINE!” It’s about time.
