The Empire Strikes Walt

Last October 30, Robert Melanson of Engadget reports that Disney has bought LucasFilms for a fraction over four billion dollars and also indicated that Disney plans on releasing new installations to the Star Wars saga.

And delight has eluded me.

Don’t get me wrong here. I’ve been salivating for the longest on the next Star Wars film. And Disney is a great company. It’s just that I don’t think it’s the right mix.

Most of us can easily recognize a Disney film and the way George Lucas has breathe life to the Star Wars saga with his genius and unique approach, I think it to be a safe assumption that they are not entirely meant for each other.

It’s a chop suey of emotions that stir in my guts. I’m both excited and dreadful of how the new Star Wars film will end up. It’s just like watching the Death Star approach – despite knowing it’s doom that’s coming, you just can’t help but stare in awe.
