Yeah, not much of a surprise. Disney knows how to make money: by keeping its ancillary products within its own empire.

^^^ The amount of entertainment properties/interests/networks that Disney owns is down right scary staggering IMO.

Re: star wars back to marvel

How would we cast Disney Star Wars?

Goofy = Luke Skywalker
Donald = Han Solo
Leia = Daisy (Sorry, it's not becuase they're both ducks, it's becuase Daisy is hotter than Minnie. Yeah, I said it, hotter. Deal with it.)
Vader= Pete (Again, not because they're both... is Pete a dog or a goof?)
Palpatine = Scrooge McDuck
Biggs Darklighter and Wedge Antilles (the rest of Red Squadron) = Chip 'n' Dale
Hugie, Dewie and Louie = Jawas.
Minnie = C3po
Pluto = R2 d2
Mickey = Obiwan Kenobi.

Re: star wars back to marvel

I think one of the first things Marvel will do is flood the market with a slew of $3.99 Star Wars titles to coincide with Episode VII and then cancel most of them afterward. After twelve or so issues, the core title will be relaunched with a new #1 in 2016.

Can't wait for Star Wars: X-Men Knights with Wolverine and his lightclaws.

Re: star wars back to marvel

Could they steal free comics day to coincide with the new movie?

Marvel after being given an advertising flush fund from Star wars puts out 12 free issue number one star wars comics which are handed out free at the theatre as you walk into opening day.

It's what Marvel did With the first Tobey McGuire Spider-Man movie and Ultimate Spider-Man #1.

It's how you get children addicted, which is how you survive another generation.

Well that sucks. Dark Horse has put out some really great stuff and I'm sorry to see them go.

It makes sense, but I can't help but think that the license was better off with Dark Horse. They publish, what, 5 SW books a month? I just can't see Marvel being as dedicated to the franchise as that.

Marvel will pump out as many titles as the market can handle. I wouldn't be surprised to see more than five monthlies.

Re: star wars back to marvel

Do the Marvel published Star Wars comics exist within their own numbered universe within the Marvel continuity, or are they completely separate?

They are a part of the same tier-canon system that the DH books are a part of. Several elements of the Marvel books have turned up in later comics and novels (Shira Brie/Lumiya among others).

I don't see Marvel doing five Star Wars monthlies at all. I think they'll do one monthly, and then various minis and graphic novels (all written by Bendis).
