Ever since George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney back in 2012 there has been a group of fans who believe Disney will destroy Star Wars. After all, they completely ruined Marvel and all of Marvel’s movies bomb at the box office…oh wait. That’s right, Marvel is thriving under Disney. That’s because the current leadership of Disney minds their own business and allows Marvel, Pixar, and (yes) Lucasfilm to operate how they always have.
In an interview with Coming Soon, Hamill addresses the concerns of who is in charge of Star Wars now:
â€œThe most interesting aspect from my point of view is that [Star Wars] is now in the hands of the generation who were fans,â€ Hamill said. â€œâ€¦Itâ€™s the next generation of filmmakers who were sort of weened on these pictures.â€
As long as Lucasfilm keeps those fans who only like 48% of the franchise away from it, Star Wars should do just fine under Disney’s ownership.
