Mesa need some thinking time to respond to dissa news

George Lucas has sold LucasFilms - and the Star Wars franchise - to Disney for four billion dollars. Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger discusses the deal (video at the link).

Three issues for the panicked fanboys to consider:

First, Lucas raped our childhoods a long time ago. It is difficult to imagine what Disney could do to the franchise they haven't already done (viz the video below).

Second, Disney has done a good job with its Marvel film adaptations. The choice of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark may be the single most inspired casting decision ever.

Third, and I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but Disney is in this for the money, not for George Lucas' herpes and fail artistic vision. They should realize there is an enormous market for a remastered - but unedited - BluRay release of the original Star Wars trilogy.

With luck we might even get the Holiday Special as a special feature.
