Fans shocked by Disney-’Star Wars’ takeover
Fans are shocked that the "Star Wars" series is going to be taken over by Disney, though it seems they could benefit from more information.
People took to Twitter immediately following the news on Tuesday that "Star Wars: Episode 7" will be coming out in 2015. Some expressed excitement at the prospect of a new trilogy, but many were displeased that Disney would be taking over the reigns. One fan's disapproval was quickly expressed in an image depicting three death stars in the shape of Mickey Mouse's head.Another compared the deal to Superstorm Sandy: "...Focus on one major disaster at [a] time!"
Incidentally, the plot details around "Episode 7" are scant, but Lucas has dropped these hints over the years: It takes place a few decades after "Return of the Jedi," continues the story of Luke Skywalker, and would deal with the rebuilding of the republic.
Celebrity "Star Wars" fans also weighed in:
Lindelof, former co-creator of the ABC hit show "Lost," also mused over the possibility of writing a script for the upcoming "Star Wars" film.
