    Looks like Disney is about to take over Fox and James Murdoch (him of phone hacking and News International fame) might well succeed Bob Iger and become CEO of Disney (no doubt with Rupert calling the shots as always)

    Just let that sink in for a while eh? The Murdoch's will own LFL and Star Wars...

    As someone once said: "This deal is getting worse all the time..."

    This sounds like mulch.

    That's a completely inaccurate & sensationalist take on this story. If things were to transpire as the article suggests, Disney will still own SW outright. In fact even more-so since they'll acquire the distribution rights to the older movies, particularly ANH. If James Murdoch were appointed as CEO that doesn't give he or his family one iota of ownership of SW. The CEO is the top employee of the company, not an owner or a director.

    G-FETT, as per usual, is just trying to stir up trouble. Just like he used to in the forums for the new SW films, although I'm guessing he's been told he can't do that anymore. Luckily no one gives a ####.
