I wish I had ten billion dollars so I could buy Lucasfilm and then watch nerds on the Internet "have to" accept my views on Star Wars as so-called canon. As if art were a matter of corporate ownership...Has anyone else heard the rumours that the deal they have to make with Universal over Hulu will cost so much (possibly as high as 70 billion dollars) that Disney will basically have to do a fire sale to pay for it, including selling Lucas Film, Paris & some parks in Asia, parts of Fox Studios, etc...?
They can't use treasury stock to pay it either as that could trigger government intervention over too much media concentration.
Apparently when you subtract the expenses from cash on hand, Dusney only has about 200 million dollars of spendable cash on hand that is not ear marked for bills.
Personally I've never been a fan of Lucas Film, except I enjoyed Willow, so I find this interesting.
