Yeah, I just heard. Holy crap. I know Disney has been buying out companies left and right (like Marvel, for example), but I never thought Lucasfilm would ever be one. Wow.
When I think about it, though, I can understand, seeing as Lucas isn't getting any younger.
Still not sure if I've got have a bad feeling about this or not.
ETA: Decided to check out some SW forums, and noticed that the TheForce.net forums are slow to load; obviously the site is getting slammed right now.
