Disney and Star Wars have a long history together. It all started with the E-Ticket attraction Star Tours at Disneyland. Back then, who knew that just a few decades later The Walt Disney Company would no longer need to license these characters from George Lucas for use in their parks, as they would later own the entirety of Lucasfilm Ltd. But there was a shift in Disney’s relationship with the Star Wars characters once they purchased them. What used to be a very playful franchise they didn’t take all that seriously has now become serious business with extremely strict rules in regard to timeline, continuity, and character integrity. But has The Walt Disney Company gone too far? Join me as I chat with Star Wars aficionado and mega-fan Mike Celestino about this change in policy from a long time ago, when Disney simply licensed the characters, to now as they currently own them.
