think Disney buying Lucasfilm is good, reasons:

Afterall Lucas felt like he was abused long enough by fans for the prequels, Indiana Jones 4, the tinkering of the OT, forgetting his promise to release the untouched with original trilogy on BD etc. plus Red Tails which was produced by him was a HUGE bomb in theaters last year and he calls it quits as he decides to retire from filmmaking and i think he made a smart move by selling his company and property to Disney.

Lucas had a friendship with Disney for a long time as he was one of the first kids to be at Disneyland when it first opened and he made those cool attractions based on Indy and SW at the parks especially Captain EO. Pixar was once one of his companies before Disney bought them in 2006 and i'm sure Disney will take good care of his company as he is now supporting his new family.

Afterall Disney did wonders with other properties they acquired like Marvel, Pixar, Ghibli and The Muppets and they also own ESPN and ABC which is nice. And they'll treat Lucasfilm/SW/Indy with respect like those other brands i mentioned.

Plus they hired GOOD writers especially the talented Michael Arndt who did the great screenplay to Toy Story 3 and a fine director for episode 7 who stated he is more SW fan than Star Trek fan as he is leaving ST for something he is more comfortable with. Lucas is out of the picture without his control and both Indiana Jones/SW are in good hands.

Plus we'll get SW/Indy/Lucasfilmland soon at Disneyworld which should be awesome and should come out 2016. Next we'll get some new SW toons with possibly a Indy toon (i can dream can i?) with new Lucasfilm stuff like maybe a Monkey Island animated movie.

And i hear this will be filmed in ACTUAL locations than all digital like the prequels and filmed on film rather than digital and will have LESS CGI but not too much but mainly practical effects (they did a comeback with Evil Dead remake) to be in the spirit of the old trilogy including a reunion of the original cast.

I'm happy cause Lucas won't be in control of his stuff anymore as he ruined SW and Indy with the prequels and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as he was too much in control and not to mention over the years he refused to released the original cuts as he keeps butchering, torturing, mutilating and defacing the OT on DVD and blu-ray but i'm glad he's gone and away as they hired a real director for episode 7 and better writers. And maybe by 2016 Disney/Fox can collabrate together for a boxset of the OT with episode 7 and the OT can finally have the untampered, unbastardnized original theatrical cuts at all restored and remastered for HD.

They couldn't possibly Jar Jar it up as bad as Lucas himself did. And yes I used Jar Jar as a verb in place of a word I'm not allowed to post on comicvine.

Couldn't care about Star Wars, but some new Indie films would be interesting.

@hillbillymorangie-isn't Sam and Max not a telltale property now? Plus, I'm sure the satire would be lost in trying to make it family-friendly.

Idc either way but Disney canceling Star Wars 1313 wasn't a good start to me.

I'm not necessarily glad it's Disney but I'm not against them. I am glad there will be more Star Wars films though, so I guess I'm glad Disney has money.

@mitran: I think that's still coming out right? I don't know what's going on with that, but they will probably make the Death Star be a Universal Studios globe, and Palpatine will probably be Oswald.

I'm fine with it as long as they don't nerf it,there was talk of stopping 1313 aaand BF3 because of game rating.which I feel is a definite sign of trouble even though its back on.

All I;m saying is Disney needs to learn that not everything is kiddish they have both Marvel and LucasArts meaning they need to realize how handle these franchises without damping them..other than that Disney is one of the best when it comes to visual fantasy so I'm kind of happy about and hope to see good things
