Disney also works very closely with the department of defense.

You're either serious about that, which is really sad, or you're trolling, which is really sad.


There it is again, a demeaning attitude towards conversation partners. It seems to occur as soon as you run out of arguments.


It's not my fault Burn is using insane jumps in pseudo-logic either genuinely or, most likely, (Knowing Burn) to get a rise out of me. Again.

EDIT: And it's not that I've run out of arguments, it's that no one has presented one to me outside of insane conspiracy theories and, as previously mentioned, insane jumps in pseudo-logic.


You could have just said you disagree and left it at that.

I seriously doubt the DoD would contract Disney, an entertainment company, for weapons development. And even if they did (To get back to the original point here) how does buying Marvel Comics, Lucasfilm, and Hasbro tie into it? It's a company originally focused on cartoons, (later branching out into live-action works as well as music) buying a comic book company, a movie studio, and a toy company. How does that seem sinister?

Because people freak out when large companies get bigger, especially when the company being ingested is something they have a vested interest in...... Like little plastic toys that change shape.

Never said I could. I was merely pointing out the flaw in your statement.


Your statement is just one huge flaw, though, so my point still stands.

You can debate your point all you want, and you're entitled to your opinion, but you"ve gone way too far with the name calling, and directing your offending comments towards Burn. On top of that, a poster complains about your attitude (again) and it's just a little much too much.

*points to screen name* See that? I'm only going to say this once: Stop it. Right now.

I'm pretty happy about this news. I took a few weeks to think it over and really decide how I felt, and I'm of the opinion that more Star Wars equals good. I don't read any of the novels and I only occasionally see CLone Wars, but if the story ends up being good and interesting, then I'm all for it continuing. I know some of the EU stuff but nit enough to make some grand judgement on how I think it will turn out or what specific things I want to happen.

Aside from that, doesn't Disney now own the Imperial March? So, when people call Disney an evil empire they have fitting theme music. :D

I agree. I think Disney buying Lucas Films is good. Like I said before about them buying Marvel, all they did was give them funding for better produced comics. Star Wars is already great with all of the comics, games, books, shows and movies. But I believe this is a good thing.

South Park did an episode on it the other night, mixing it with the election. It was, obviously, hilarious.

The merger of what? LucasFilm and Disney? I thought that was a buyout, not a merger...but I think it's too early to tell how Disney will affect the Star Wars brand as a whole. I thought episode 7 was as much miss as it was hit, but I don't know whose decisions were the contributors to that. Do Disney's shot-callers need to sign off on the movies' content? Or is LucasFilm still a largely autonomous division of Disney?
Still think Disney will cause the zombie apocalypse? :-P
Yes. Not sure how. Along with Facebook. If you see some of these youngin's on their phones all zoned out, you would think it's already here. I mean, people don't go anywhere anymore without checking their phones every 30 seconds. They're like zombies already.
