Pretty big news this week and the Disney Parks folks put their special spin on it.

Disney Parks nailed it with this oneā€¦

    I’m stoked for Episodes 7, 8, 9. In some ways it’s too bad Lucas sold-out, because I always thought it was cool that Star Wars was an independent juggernaut. It’s probably just as well though anyway as the franchise has been whored out for many a year now, at least we’ll see some new blood directing.

      I guess that’s the main thing. This gets Star Wars out of George’s hands.

    Bit of a change for the ‘old blog, isn’t it?

      Why? Are you working on one?

        On an somewhat related note – we’d love to see an MLS app similar to the NBA one. You guys are one of the official sponsors of the league and it seems like a great fit.

        MLS Live is already streaming live games online and to mobile devices, but I’d rather watch it on my XBOX!

        I wouldn’t doubt it, Major. He is an overqualified “imagineer”. :)

        Nope, but you guys sure are!

    Please please pick up the triology by Timothy Zahn and put lucas back in a cupboard where he belongs, thanks to Lucas for hope, empire and jedi, but please cant he leave it alone now.

    • Hugoku

      Nope. It will be a new original story.
      Now, we should at least get the ORIGINAL original Trilogy in BR. No more “I burned the original negatives” BS.
