I was on Lucas Film property in San Francisco not too long ago.I don't even remember why or how I ended up there or what I was even doing there but I wonder if that will go as well.

Ooops, I meant that last comment to imply that this announcement was so huge and came so totally out of the blue that it blew my mind. Not that I was planning to blow my brains out.

Disney and Lucasfilm have always had a work partnership ever since Star Tours opened up in 1987. So I guess if anything, I'm more comfortable with them buying it than I would be with another movie studio.
