HECK YES.

What? The original movies have already been tainted beyond repair. I want to see what crazy crap Disney will throw at it in a third trilogy. It should be spectacular in one way, shape, or form.

This also includes LucasFilm subsidiaries like Lucasarts, so this creates an interesting situation.

When asked about gaming, the guys running the conference call said they'd be only concerned with the social and mobile gaming market. So as far as Star Wars games are concerned, I guess they aren't really worried about adding to the game library.
After all, this acquisition seems to be entirely surrounding Star Wars and the third trilogy of films, as well as Industrial Light and Magic.

I have to wonder what this all means in the end. I mean, Lucasarts was already working on a new Star Wars game (1313), so I wonder if that's affected by this or not.

Oh crap I forgot about 1313. That looked amazing.

Actually, just thinking about this presents a cool opportunity.

This acquisition includes all of the LucasFilm subsidiaries and IPs garnered through it.

This would seemingly include any IPs from LucasArts. Which would include their game franchises.

Now, just think about the possibilities...
Spoiler: click to show
Monkey Island animated film
From Pixar

It's unlikely, but it is an opportunity they could jump on.

Cool. No one made a Kingdom Hearts joke yet! Maybe Disney was just waiting for the acquisition of both Star Wars and Marvel to make Kingdom Hearts 3? but seriously, folks, Darth Vader wouldn't actually be that out of place in the Kingdom Hearts games, if I had to base it off the one game that I actually played.

I'm probably incredibly slow to make this joke, but does this mean Leia is now a Disney princess?
