Disney bought the rights to the Star Wars franchise from Lucasarts today for $4B. For old Star Wars fans like me, this poses two immediate questions:
#1 Is Disney going to make rubbish movies and destroy the series?
#2 Does this mean that finally someone is in a position to remaster and release the ORIGINAL version of Star Wars, A New Hope?
#1 Too Late. George already did that with 3 1/2 crummy episodes
#2 Who knows. I can only keep my fingers crossed – a good friend of mine consulted his magic 8 ball though and he said the outlook was grim.

Have you seen the picture of George standing with Micky and Minnie in Jedi costumes? –I am not optimistic. 😦

Yes, I have. It’s bad – very bad.
But I keep telling myself that “it’s just publicity crap. It won’t bleed over into the films.”
Please don’t kill the hope yet.
Just give me a couple days.

The stages of acceptance take longer for some than others…
