Lucas just sold his integrity…. He was the maverick who shun the big studios…. Now he is selling out to them…. Bet the next “Star Wars” movies are a flop…

The original Star Wars trilogy was a deep and meaningful story which enjoys endless rewatchability. The prequels were a bucket a tripe that deserve only one fate – to be sold off to Disney to be exploited like every other fairy tale they have violated. This is a sad day for culture and probably an economic win for Disney.

Would you ever listen to yourselves! ‘jackboots’, ‘deep and meaningful’! It is timeless entertainment, enjoyed by 10′s of millions. Disney have also brought fun, entertainment, escapism etc to hundreds of millions through the years, and will continue to do so. Star Wars is a great franchise and a great addition yo Disney’s stable.
