Disney does Star Wars

Disney bought LucasFilm and its Star Wars franchise in cash and stock, and plans to release at least three more films in the Star Wars sci-fi saga.

Mr Lucas will become the second-largest individual holder of Disney shares, with a 2.2 per cent stake. Disney will pay about half the purchase price in cash and issue about 25m shares at closing.

The most recent Star Wars film was Revenge of the Sith in 2005.

The deal marks the third time in less than seven years that Disney has signed a massive deal to take over a beloved studio or character portfolio, as part of its strategy to acquire brands that can be stretched across TV, movies, theme parks and the internet.

In early 2006, Disney struck a deal to acquire Toy Story creator Pixar, and in the summer of 2009 it bought the comic book powerhouse Marvel.

I know it's a spoof video but something tells me they are at least considering it....  rubschin:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

In all honesty I'd say something like that probably works better than a CV fir the animation industry
