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.
But what do you think? Talk to us in the comments!
I think if anyone could buy Star Wars it could be Universal. They own some of the biggest IP’s ever created. And honestly I think they would bring back George and right the wrongs from the past. They have the assets to make it happen
Please someone with respect for George Lucas and the lore that he created buy Star Wars, and don’t ruin the Star Wars universe with personal politics

Can star wars be saved though? What would people be buying other than a poisoned apple at this point? A new owner would have to scrub the entire disney run with the franchise, and that would be so convoluted, plus the mob wouldn’t forgive them. Tough call.
