ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
There've been plenty of Disney/Star Wars mashups since the merger announcement, but this one wins for simplicity and execution.

Thatsa good, boss.
Nice. My favorite is still one a friend of mine made. It’s the Episode 1 teaser poster, of course the obvious Darth Vader/Mickey Mouse shadow draws your attention, and then you realize he also replaced Anakin with Kevin Corcoran. Literally did a spit take when I noticed. Subtle and hilarious.
I have a bad feeling about this.
And then Lucas goes and gives all the money away. What a douche. You can’t even be mad at him now.
I don’t understand why anyone’s concerned about this. All most Star Wars fans have wanted for over a decade is for Lucas to have nothing to do with Star Wars. Now he’ll have nothing to do with it, and the future movies will hopefully be placed in the hands of passionate people who will make good things. Disney has a pretty good track record recently, what with doing right by both Marvel and the Muppets. I think this is all good news.
I want a new, good Indiana Jones movie.
Pixar isn’t Disney. Disney are merely the evil distributors.
Since Lasseter is Chief Creative Officer at Disney now, as well as Head of Imagineering, it’s not as simple as that.
