Darth DisneyThe takeover of Star Wars by Disney has many fans fearful for the future of the franchise.  Star Wars has a strong following over many generations of fans.  Even with Jar Jar Binks, a sappy unbelievable love story sub-plot and killing off the Jedi, the franchise stands strong.

Disney has a great track record with the Marvel franchise and many other beloved characters, but sci-fi fans stand in a category by themselves.  They don’t want their story lines drifting off center.  Don’t believe me?  Star Trek Enterprise anyone?  What killed that story was the radical shift from the known Star Trek universe.  Don’t play with my backstory.

So let’s give Disney a chance to expand upon the great foundation they inherited from Lucasfilms.  There is a wealth of material still to be explored, especially with The Clone Wars series.  If you haven’t seen it, tune in to Cartoon Network and catch a few episodes.  It is a great accounting of how Anakin transitioned from promising Jedi Master to Darth Vader.

If you are one of the many upset about the Disney buyout of Star Wars,  here is something to help you sulk it out.  A fantasy take on George Lucas’ revenge as if the buyout was a sinister plot.
