Disney buys Star Wars maker Lucasfilm

Postby TomCotton » Wed Oct 31, 2012 12:36 pm

Disney Buys Lucasfilm :thud:
Plans to make Star Wars Episode 7, 8, 9, ad infinitum. How many more irritating characters like Jar Jar Binks will now be generated to annoy the hell out of people? :bang: :roll:

First Marvel Comics now Lucasfilm. The Empire has really struck this time. :roll:

Yep, my breakfast stuck in my throat when I read it this morning. :roll: Not sure, what to think of it. Loved the first three movies, disliked the second three movies, I'd say: I don't need another three movies, I'll rather stick to the books... :roll:

Never have read or had any interest in reading any Star Wars books. I will probably see the movies just to have something else to bitch about. :D

Although the world will end on December 21 so no worries. :um: ;) :lol:

:lol: :lol:
Oh, I read a few of the books, some of them were pretty good, some of them were.... :roll: but I stopped buying them years ago.

Maybe I've grown out of it. ;)

That means Lucas won't have time to spend all his newly gained money... :lol:

Oh, yeah! That would fix a whole bunch of stuff - like my Mastercard bill :)!

:lol: I don't he was all that broke to begin with!

One has to give him the :yes: for this: I read he's going to donate over 1 billion $ to a newly created charity foundation for educational purposes.

That is so true, isn't it! Lucas is the best and the worst thing that ever happened to Star Wars. I asked my husband if he wants to go to see Number Seven - I wish I could show you his reply :lmao: .

The memes have been hilarious! Most of them are mashups of Star Wars and Mickey Mouse.
To err is but human, to forgive divine, and to design is AWESOME! :8
