Wow... Just wow.... There's good stuff brewing at Disney for the future. If the New Fantasyland is any indication the good stuff is certainly on its way. Hopefully they can continue riding the wave of goodness.

I think its because Disney wants to control it all and doesn't want someone else controlling any part of what they own.

Let's say they own the theme park rights and Lucus decides to sell the comic book rights to someone else. Disney now has no control over what that character does in the comics. They want it all from snout to tail.

I really hope that means that Star Wars Land will be on the way!

And it's not just Star Wars, it's also the Indy franchise.

Lucas is the only shareholder. He hasn't "left", well, until today that is! He personally makes 4 billion in the deal, not too shabby!

Disney already stated in the conference call they are only focusing on Star Wars and Skywalker Sound.
