Bloomberg reports that Disney is looking into selling various IPs to competitors, including Star Wars. This would be a shock to the business world, as Disney has spent the last 20ish years buying up other studios to amass its entertainment empire. Check out their Tweet here, with a reply from our very own Drunk3po:
Does anyone want to buy Star Wars? It might be going up for sale. https://t.co/fS5j9giwxt

Not going to lie; I feel very foolish because I was initially psyched for Disney to purchase Lucasfilm and Star Wars. I’ve loved a lot of the TV output, and I hear good things about the games, but it’s undeniable they’ve botched things on the cinematic front. It’s sad to hear about people wanting to sell off something that was so special, but this could be the best thing for the franchise going forward.
