Wow.

I wonder if that's why the Cartoon Network moved Clone Wars from Friday Nights to Saturday Mornings. And I can't imagine Dark Horse is too happy about this. I wonder what other Star Wars stuff could be taken out of play because of this.

They had Winnie the Pooh and the Muppets. Now Marvel and Star Wars, in a short period of time. What will Disney buy next?

Warner Brothers won't give DC up. Disney bought Marvel to piss 'em off.

I saw another picture that turned the bagel hairdo into mouse ears. An obvious joke, but it made me laugh.

As to the question of what Disney could buy next? Nintendo? Apple? Exxon/Mobil? Congress?

Cerebus?

There is still Star Trek, Conan Properties, The Whedonverse. Harry Potter. Edgar Rice Burroughs whole pantheon, though Disney might have mixed feelings about that one right now.

What about Archie & Peanuts? Maybe they'll go after stuff like Pokemon

Yeah, there are a lot of cute pics out there.

I saw more than a few variations on the death star. One with one big death star, and two little ones like mickey ears. Another one photoshopped the one dish like circle on the Death Star into three one big and two mickey ears.

I think it includes basically everything Lucas. The most valuable part of the portfolio might turn out to be
his CGI studio Industrial Light and Magic, many studios and production companies use their services.

Very interesting, DF, and as usual a bonanza for lawyers no matter how
it finally shakes out.

Perhaps Edward James Olmos as Ben Cartwright.
