On Lucasfilm and Disney and Fandom
November 4, 2012
That said, there are many perspectives on the news:
Personally, if I’m worried about anything, it’s that Disney is buying up not just Lucasfilm, but a lot of IPs like Marvel. Disney has created some great movies over the years, but honestly, there’s something about a company as monolithic as Disney that gives me the creeps. (I think this may come from having been to Disney World, which is disturbingly fake–like most tourist traps–and yet uses words like "happy" and "magical" like they’re trademarked. When Big Brother finally takes over the world, his reign will be ushered in by Imagineers.)
I’ve seen a number of people point out that Pixar could make a great CGI Star Wars movie.
