Disney just bought LucasFilm, will release Star Wars 7,8, 9.

Coworker's friend: "Worrying that Disney will ruin Star Wars is like worrying that a second iceberg will dive down to hit the Titanic."

Here's hoping they make a film using one of the novels rather than failing to write something original. (Or that they hire Zahn or Stackpole to do it for them.)

Ahab, if they're going to make a movie every 2-3 years, "after" they make 7-8-9 they are going to be writing stuff of their own. Which brings me back to above statement 8-)

dunno; they could add cute-and-adorable characters and even-more-princesses (or bring back old ones) to boost their merchandising spinoff. *imagines Ariel singing, "a whole new worrrllllld...", ewoks in fern gully*, etc.

*shudders*

black racists:

Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team, "Too white"

http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/dish/20 ... -too-white

following that logic, can we say that american basketball teams are, dare i say, "too black"???

if we did, we would be called racists.
