POLL: What do you think of Disney swallowing up Star Wars? Plus a heartwarming video to put you at ease…
Surely you’ve heard of the latest Disney acquisition by now. Yep, it seems the House of Mouses’s neverending quest to capture the attention of young males just extended to A Galaxy Far, Far Away. I, for one, think it’s a damned fine move for Star Wars, and that’s saying nothing of Indy (Blu-ray is on sale at 50% off BTW!) and who knows?! Maybe even games like Full Throttle and Day of the Tentacle! Either way, this adorable video sure as shit didn’t bring me any less confidence.
Georgey haters already seem positive Disney can do no worse for the franchise, including a newly announced Episode 7 for 2015, but Lucasfilm and Disney already have a fairly acceptable relationship (within the Disney parks anyway) that should give every fan a reason to be optimistic. Not only that, Lucas has a history of creating some of the most unforgettable entertainment with another company Disney scooped up this decade: The Muppets! Lucasfilm was involved in some of Jim Henson’s most visually astounding work, such as Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, plus some flimsy arrangement between those two visionaries spawned some of the most memorable moments in all of cartoon history, Muppet Babies! Which now stands a much better chance of getting a DVD release than ever before, since both properties reside under Mickey’s deep-pocketed umbrella.
Laser Time’s spoken of the warning signs in our Star Wars episode, Muppet episode, and at least one Cartoon episode, but we wanna hear what you think. It’s inevitable that the Disney/Star Wars marriage will be discussed at length in some upcoming episode of either Laser Time or Cape Crisis, so give us your feedback and be a part of the show!
