  • [Other] Interesting Thread from 2006 that Discusses an Acquisition of Lucasfilm

    The discussion includes a consideration of Lucas, himself, as a new hope in reforming Disney's toxic organizational culture and incestuous corporate governance, if, of course, the deal would include an equity position for the filmmaker and potentially a seat on the board.

    Walt Disney is dead. Jim Henson is dead. Steve Jobs is dead. The Pixar people have mostly been a bust. George Lucas may be one of the last individuals that can exert a countervailing force on the direction The Walt Disney Company has taken over the last 18 years.

    designed to appeal to everyone."

          Yeah, well too bad Lucas isn't buying Disney. It's the other way around.
          It will be assimilated.

            I think what we learned from that thread was.... whatever cellerhound says... believe the opposite

            From his take on Spielberg and Indy.. to Lucas...
