Disney to Acquire Lucasfilm

by Fleetfang on Wed Oct 31, 2012 12:28 pm

Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm is a momentous change for the future direction of the Star Wars franchise. Like all Star Wars fans, the members of the 501st are excited about the prospect of seeing brand new Star Wars films on the big screen, and we welcome the longevity that those films will grant to the entire saga. We will eagerly await the release of these new adventures in the Star Wars galaxy.

We have a long-standing and valuable relationship with Lucasfilm, and a solid foundation with Disney through our appearances at Star Wars Weekends and in support of Star Tours. We are looking forward to continuing our relationship with LFL and Disney and are equally excited by the possibility of future opportunities for the expansion of the Star Wars universe worldwide.

The 501st Legion will always be "the bad guys who do good," and we are certain that our charitable mission to spread the magic of Star Wars to children of all ages around the world will continue for years to come.

Thank you,
501st Legion - Vader's Fist
