, I'm not nearly as negative and condescendingly backhanded as you but I also don't think that Disney will ruin the Star Wars
franchise and Lucasfilm brand because from my observation when Disney buys a brand, they buy it for the brand and their intention is to preserve the brand and not bastardize it with the exception of perhaps Disney Star Wars
Weekends, but that's the Disney Orlando Florida park and that's been going on for something like 8 years prior to the acquisition. Besides that Disney pays all that money - to tap that
audience pool, that
fan base to help fill a gap that Disney cannot in itself fill. And why chance jeopardizing fixing something that ain't broke and risk alienating the core base. If it isn't apparent to you and the naysayers out there all you have to do is look at some of Disney's other acquisitions such as Marvel and Pixar. Disney's has stayed clear of meddling and messing with those companies and allowed them to operate independently. Heck, go back even further in Disney acquisition history. Miramax and Touchstone Pictures, brands that Disney left to their own distinct independence.
