George Lucas – a man who has never met a licensing contract he didn’t like – has just had his company LucasArts bought by Disney for $4,000,000,000. That’s the number 4 with a billion after it.
Alone, this news would mean that they already sickly sweet world of Disney has just bought one of the most bastardized franchises in history: the Star Wars franchise. However, there is some poo icing on this shit cake: there will be a new Star Wars movie in 2015.
Given that the last three were fucking appaling, it can only be assumed that this going to be one of the worst movies of all time. Ever. In The world. In all of history. But wait! One wise tweeter has a cunning plan:
Given that George Lucas couldn’t direct his way out of a paper bag let alone a movie it appears that He Of Jar Jar Binks might not direct this next one; here’s hoping anyway. Could you imagine how much better the franchise would be if it were done by, say, Pixar’s Brad Bird?
Think about it.
