When I saw this headline pop up over at Game Informer News, I had to check the calendar.
No, it is not April 1st.
Maybe this is some sort of “Devil’s Night” prank?
What can this portend? I can hear a million sighs of relief as George “The Destroyer” Lucas is out of the picture. The quote:
“For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” Lucasfilm CEO George Lucas said in a statement. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers.”
But is Disney a step in the right direction? Is Star Wars even a Disney-like property? I thought Disney required kids with single dads and dead mothers, not kids with single moms and no dads. And what will we get with a Star Wars Episode VII release in 2015?
The future looks… weird.
Now what is the best follow-on rumor to start right about now while people are stunned… the return of Star Wars Galaxies maybe?
And in what freaking order am I going to have to watch the movies after Episode VII comes out?
Anyway, how are you taking the news?
