Disney Parks totally took advantage of an old commercial, reworking it to fit with the news that Disney is buying Lucasfilm.
With the announcement that The Walt Disney Company has purchased Lucasfilm, half of the Internet is very nervous that Disney could monkey around with the property and ruin it completely. We’ve taken a moment to reflect on the pros and cons of this concern, and have discovered five ways Disney could both ruin and improve the Star Wars movies at the same time.
Tinfoil hats abound on the internet right now about the bombshell revelation that George Lucas is selling LucasArts, ILM and his lucky R2D2 boxer shorts to Disney for over 4 billion dollars (that’s with a ‘B’, and that’s also more money than Stephen and I have ever SEEN in our cumulative 8 decades on the planet.) Given all the various permutations involved, it’s easy to find something to love or hate about this situation, and there are already people brayint that the Golden Age of Star Wars is over. (Most of them are writing it “starwars”, though, so I ignore them for improper formatting.) Here in the QOTD, though, we try to keep on the sunnier side of life, even when Pete got turned into a horny toad, and the panoramic vistas of the how-awesome-could-this-be future are stretching out before us like Eel O’Brien mud-wrestling Ralph Dibny and Reed Richards at the Hooters in Ottumwa, Iowa…

Here is the official announcement full of PR speak and what-not on the Disney Lucasfilm Deal announced moments ago.
Here is a holy crap moment, and yet another reminder, why I need to spend every minute of my day glued to the Intardwebz instead of attending meetings for my RWJ. The Walt Disney Company has purchased Lucasfilm.
As Captain America: The Winter Soldier shapes up to go before the lens, H’wood has revealed one of the villains in the flick, and some returning heroes, too.
Early this morning, the Walt Disney Studios, Marvel, and iTunes released the first trailer for Iron Man 3.
We’ve known that Marvel and Disney have had plans for a S.H.I.E.L.D. television for a while now, but when news broke that Agent Phil Coulson would be a major part of the television show, suddenly the rest of the civilized world must also face the dilemma that faces comic book face at least once a quarter – the death and return of a favorite character.
During the New York Comic Con, Marvel unveiled the trailer for Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United.
