Star Wars & Mickey Mouse

I think by now, we have all had time to process the news of Disney purchasing Star Wars. What I have witnessed is that most fans are excited and supportive of this move. I will honestly admit my first reaction was one of disgust, I mean Disney it seems has its hands into everything, and I’m very certain that Mickey Mouse will be running for president soon. However, after reading the articles and hearing what true Star Wars fans have to say, I realized that this only means good things for our beloved franchise.

George Lucas made a very smart business move here. The man isn’t going to live forever, and he does have to make sure that even after he is gone his business and his art will be well taken care of.  Any person who owns their own business, whether it be in entertainment or the local coffee shop, has to make sure that somebody besides themselves can run the business if something happens. The man also deserves to retire and do other things.

Despite the fact I think Disney has its hands in way too much, even I have to admit that Disney is a successful business. Trust me, I am not against the Disney Channel or their movies (they do make some amazing movies, and I did grow up watching the Disney Channel). They are very successful, and I believe they have done well with Marvel. Maybe the fact that they have their hands in everything means that they can see beyond one thing. What I mean is they have experience in making many different types of movies, TV shows, merchandise, etc. I don’t believe they will botch Star Wars; they didn’t with Marvel. George Lucas didn’t simply hand them the keys and walk off. I’m sure they made some kind of plan.

Let’s also keep in mind that we don’t want Star Wars to simply fade away. I’m not a Star Trek hater, but Star Trek isn’t growing either. We don’t see a younger generation of Star Trek fans, but we are with Star Wars. The Prequels and Clone Wars have done that. If you’re not evolving you’re dying. Say what you want about George Lucas, but his focus is to keep Star Wars alive for the next generation.

This is a good thing for us as Star Wars fans. I don’t know how they will handle the movies. I hope they introduce new characters.  Although I love new movies, I also hope that they stay true to what Star Wars is about. The Originals may be old, but they were the foundation of what we have today. Well Disney you now own my soul, and if I can get ahold of some Star Wars Mickey Mouse ears, well I’ll wear them.

May the Force be with you!
