The Disney Corporation bought George Lucas's film company for $4 billion, and plans to make a seventh Star Wars film for 2015. Does it get better than that? This guarantees Star Wars will be passed on to the next generation of young movie goers. Truly, in a galaxy far far away ... it's a small world after all.
Disney's recent interest in science fiction (John Carter) and now this Star Wars announcement bodes well for the science fiction genre.
I am particularly interested in the Disney announcement because of the October release of my latest book, America's Galactic Foreign Legion - Book 16: Galactic Disney about building a Disney amusement park on a distant planet colony. I have fun with humanity using drones disguised as Tinkerbell pixies, Mickey Mouse carrying an assault rifle, and anti-aircraft sites hidden atop the 'Escape From Spider Mountain' rollercoaster ride. The evil aliens attempt to stop the Merry Rodent and his Mickey Mouse Club, but resistance is futile.
