Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock.

Entertainment Weekly interviewed Mark Hamill earlier today:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What did you make of the big news yesterday?
MARK HAMILL: Oh my gosh, what a shock that was! I had no idea that George was going to sell to Disney until I read it online like everybody else. He did tell us last summer about wanting to go on and do [Episodes] VII, VIII, and IX, and that [newly appointed Lucasfilm president] Kathleen Kennedy would be doing them. He seems to be in a really good place. He’s really happy. And that’s nice because I know that when we were making the movies, he was not a jolly guy on set. [Laughs] I always felt badly for him because he agonizes over details, and I’m sure after imagining it in his head for so many years, to see it realized — he’d look up and just hang his head and groan. Harrison [Ford], Carrie [Fisher], and I were always trying to cheer him up and joke him out of his doom and gloom. I missed his call yesterday, but I spoke to him maybe three weeks ago. But until we know more, it’s hard to make any comment other than congratulations to George.

Hmmm, what about The Clone Wars? Will Cartoon Network keep the rights to air it?
I'm guessing Clone Wars is in jeopardy.

Didn't the purchase of Marvel mean the premature end of Spectacular Spider-man as well as Wolverine & the X-Men?
Yes.

If you ask me, he's already spinning in it anyways.

Legally, it can't happen. Disney already owns ABC. They cannot also own CBS. They would have to sell it first, and they've shown no interest in doing so.

He'd just be thinking (a) Is there any money in it? and (b) Will I get laid as a result of it?

Does anyone else have an image of Mickey shooting Force lightning while shouting, "POWER! UNLIMITED POWER!" running around in their head?




Doesn't quite work with Mickey...

That's pretty much been my perception of The Walt Disney Company for decades.

Forget Disney, that's been my perception of Mitt Romney if he wins on Tuesday.
