Well, amidst hurricanes and landslides, Disney has ponied up over $4 BILLION and purchased The Star Wars Co. (Lucasfilm). Collider reports that the mega-company has just become a mega-mega-ginormous-company.
And not wasting any time, Disney went ahead and announced that they will release EPISODE 7 IN 2015! The entire thing is mind-blowing enough, in the fact that Disney outright bought Lucasfilm … but then, without waiting for their giant platinum diamond encrusted credit card to cool off, Disney announces A NEW STAR WARS TRILOGY! Holy Hell.
Think of the possibilities! A new Star Wars trilogy WITHOUT George Lucas. Even MORE Star Wars merchandise that nobody wants! And most certainly we can put away our fan fiction with the inevitable official crossovers! Hulk-on-Wookie action is no longer an “if”. It’s a “when”.
Who will Disney buy next? Only a few more companies and they will be able to erect their very own $852 Quadrillion Death Star.
