I think it was Disney that saved Pixar.

With Toy Story I might agree, but after it's success I think Disney needed Pixar much more than Pixar needed Disney.

That I would buy. Or with digital remaster. Or a blue ray of every version, or at least the major ones.

What if Disney gave the new Star Wars film to Pixar and it was all 3-D CGI?

It would probably have a very heart warming story and win a bunch of awards, but it wouldn't be Star Wars.

Extremely doubt this, Disney isn't stupid.

If you are visiting Disney World and suddenly see this, it might be time to run away!

I'm happy that we aren't doing this. Can you imagine the drain on the budget? Not to mention the strife from other nations getting up in arms about us having a planet killer in orbit.

It's because Alderaan has so much political sway in Washington.

Yeah, the damn Alderaan lobbiests really hold far more political power than they should. And, of course, anyone who so much as dares to criticize them is instantly labeled as being an anti-alderite.

Everyone knows that the Trade Federation never really "imprissioned Gungans" and the whole thing was just made up to help Gungans gain political power in the Senate! "Never trust a Gungan" is what my Granddad used to always say!

The first Star Wars movie outside of the new 3 has been announced by Disney!
