Today will be remember in the annals of history for two events. First the horrible aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and second the salvation of Star Wars from the death of a thousand cuts it has suffered under George Lucas. Here at the Freehold we are huge fans of the juggernaut capitalism of Walt Disney. The man and his legacy were genius. Today I have just heard word that Disney has purchased Lucas Films which include the rights to the Star Wars Universe for 4.05 billion dollars. A few years ago Disney bought Marvel comics to get the movie rights and If the Marvel movies are any indication the new Star Wars movie… yes you heard that right “NEW STAR WARS” movie that Disney is planning for 2015 will be epic.
We can all be thankful that Star Wars is out of the hands of that horrible hack George Lucas.
May the Force be with Disney.
