- Walt Disney Co.
- Star Wars creator George Lucas along with some of his new pals.
When the Disney Company purchased Lucasfilm in 2012 for $4 billion, the Mouse House immediately began working on a million (or possibly billion) ways to capitalize on the Star Wars brand, not the least of which will be this December's reboot of the Star Wars saga, directed by J.J. Abrams.
Additionally, in August, Disney announced plans were already under way to build two huge Star Wars attractions at California's Disneyland and Florida's Disney World. Disney officials promise visitors will be able to "engage in an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance," fly a virtual Millennium Falcon and take a beverage break at a Mos Eisley-style cantina. The parks will also be "staffed" by droids and "roaming beats" according to Disney officials.
This morning, YouTube user Pistol Shrimps had a little fun with a video mashup of droids, resistance fighters and Disney princesses. Enjoy.
