MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Hey, maybe they're realize 'don't tick off your fans' and whip the IP into shape. They've done alright with Marvel. Could be a good thing.

And what's this? ... from the article at http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/...sfilm/1669739/

"The latest part of the Star Wars saga, Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for a 2015 release."

Exactly, they did OK with Pirates of the Caribbean as well (the first couple anyway), so I say bring it on as long as George Lucas isn't directing. Man has a genius imagination and comes up with some wonderfully intricate plots, but he seems to have lost his ability to direct and get the best out of actors.

So, brainstorm everyone! Who would you get to direct the next Star Wars?

I'd go for Ron Howard or Jon Favreau.

So, Truce at Bakura: The Movie, or prepare for basically the whole extended universe to get downgraded from C to N canon? Not that this would be a bad thing with as bad as some of its gotten over the years.


Edit: and speaking of what Disney did with Marvel, I'm really hoping they just start throwing money around to get the movie rights to the rest of the universe back under one roof. Just the X-men would open up so many awesome possibilities, seeing as something like half of the classic matchups were Wolverine vs. Somebody.

I thought the fourth Pirates was pretty good too! Definately a new story arc getting started but not bad.

Swell, 'Disney's Star Wars' will be on every DvD box now. Still not a bad payday, 4 billion for Lucasfilm, what did Lucas get for Pixar ?
