Disney Buys Star Wars

So, Disney has purchased Lucasfilm, including its most famous property, Star Wars. I wish I had some kind of holily sagacious geek perspicacity to offer you at this point in the apocalypse, but all I can think is “Holy great clanging fuckballs!” I got nothin’. Except to say that I will gleefully give up all my free time to write Episode 7, gratis.

John Gruber may have hit on the most peculiar element of this most Frankensteinian of pop culture marriages: “Exciting news. But it’s hard to imagine a Star Wars film opening without the 20th Century Fox fanfare.”

Ain’t it, though.
