Disney buys Lucasfilm

Today, Disney announced that it has purchased Lucasfilm. Details are still coming in, but a correspondent with the mail room of a legal company that has heard of this issue tells us with some authority that, “This means that Disney will have the full rights to both the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises, so they will not have to rip out the attractions based on those properties when their ill-conceived 30-year lease expires in a few years. Disney had already purchased Pixar to settle issues with Bugs Land in California Adventure, and Marvel so that they would not lose the rights to Universal Islands of Adventure, which someone at Disney mistakenly thought the company owned. Now all that remains is for them to purchase the MGM film library, the Aerosmith music catalog, and Rod Serling Enterprises, and they will finally have the ability to keep all of the attractions in all of their theme parks (particularly Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida) open indefinitely.”
