The key is that Lucas appears to be giving up a lot of control.  Hire good directors for the next three films and I'm there.  Announce that the subtitle is "The Search for Jar Jar", and I'm out.

If I'm Guillermo Del Toro, Peter Jackson or Jon Favreau, I'm calling my agent already.

Not having Lucas write/direct has to be an instant plus.

I hope Disney goes in an all-Ewok direction.  Think of the marketing possibilities!

Disney is a shitbag of a company, but I'm sure they'll do a better job than Lucas did with the last 3 films.

Wow. I haven't thought about it in a long time, but for some reason this reminds me of a rousing discussion thread in here a good while back, after someone contended that Walt Disney was, in fact, a Nazi.  He made pretty compelling points to support it, too, as I recall. At least it seemed so - to me - at the time.

Off of the top of my head, I think the instigator was The Poster Formerly Known As Joey Trum.  And if I'm wrong about that, RJ, I apologize in advance.

I think he called him a fascist for fueling the flames of McCarthyism and "naming names" before the house un-american activities committe, but not necessarily a Nazi.

Walt Disney was only mortal.  It takes a special kind of evil to be a Nazi, fascist, socialist and communist all at the same time.

There's some evidence that ol' Walt was a Nazi sympathizer, and he definitely used the Red scare to bust up animators' unions. But I'm more referring to their habit of suing day cares with Mickey painted on the wall, and manipulating Congress to extend copyright until the sun burns out while taking all their major properties from the public domain.
