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

Disney Parks nailed it with this one…

    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?

    I smell a Disney advertising app coming…

      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”. :)

      • Russell Gorall

        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.
