Since Disney bought Lucasfilm, they can officially be Disney Princess Leia and Prince Solo right? :D
George Lucas Weighs In On Disney Buyout of the Day: Lot of mixed feelings about Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm. Here’s why George Lucas decided to do it:For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next. It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime.
I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come.
Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products.
Here’s the video.
Couldn’t they have sold it to…some other company besides Disney?
I mean Disney will keep the merchandise going real well, but I can’t see the writing being as good as it once was…
And Star Wars, in its golden days, was NOT about the kids watching it or the merchandise.
Why couldn’t the people making the Avengers movies buy it? I’m sure there is a legitimate reason but that would have been ideal IMO.
Star Wars would have continued to be amazing for certain.
But now…I’m not so sure.
