Ok Fine, lets talk about Star Wars

Jimminy Christmas everyone and their grandma keeps asking me about Disney buying Star Wars. Here's the deal, neither George Lucas or Disney are going to do anything to ruin my childhood. My childhood happened 30 years ago and unless I pull a Billy Pilgrim, I don't think I'm going to be revisiting it anytime soon. So as far as my love of Star Wars and all the memories I have of it as a kid, those will be just fine. They're not going anywhere (that is until I enter my inevitable slide into senility, but that's a good 5-10 years away).

So lets look towards the future! The Future is bright. Disney makes some pretty good movies. I don't care how well it did in the box office, I'd watch John Carter of Mars a thousand times before watching the Attack of the Clones again. If there's going to be more Star Wars movies (and that was inevitable) we're much better off without Lucas being involved. Maybe we'll get a stand alone Boba Fett movie!

And we haven't even talked about the DVDs. Rob Bricken has a pretty good rundown of the complications surrounding the DVD/ Blu Ray rights to all the existing movies. Again here's a situation where Disney has a much better track record than George Lucas. Sure, Disney does that whole Disney Vault nonsense where they maximize dollars by keeping their films scarce, but they don't jerk around their fan bases like Lucas does. Maybe just maybe we'll see a nice high-def transfer of the original unedited trilogy before they remake them staring Channing Tatum, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Swift.

C-Tates is Han.
