Will Disney turn Star Wars to the Dark Side?

31 Oct

It’s official. Disney has conquered another huge franchise, thus making themselves even more powerful than before. Disney has bought Lucas Films Ltd. (the production company that’s mostly known for producing Star Wars), and fans are turning to the dark side.

Now I’m not one who is enveloped within this huge fan base. I never watched the first installment back in the 70’s with Harrison Ford, however, I did watch the newer films with Natalie Portman (the acting in those movies was terrible). While I have no vested interest within the new franchise, my heart feels for Star Wars fans everywhere. I know what Disney does to movies. Pirates of the Caribbean? Should have stopped at three and now there are rumors of a sixth film. (I love Johnny Depp, but come on!) Don’t even get me started on the original animated films’ sequels: Lion King 2, The Little Mermaid 2, Aladdin 3… the saga continues. 

So will Disney do the same to Star Wars? Will they take another franchise too far to a point of no return? I personally love what they have done for Marvel (have you seen the Iron Man 3 trailer??), but Disney can get a tad over-zealous. Seriously, have you seen Bambi 2? For the sake of comic cons, I hope Disney doesn’t ruin this for every fan out there living in their mother’s basement watching The Empire Strikes Back on replay.  Let’s hope that Miley Cyrus can stay out of this, too.

We will find out the verdict to this potential massacre in 2015 when Star Wars 7 is set to be released. Until then, pray to Han Solo that Demi Lovato (or any other Disney child star) doesn’t get cast.
