The "Nooooo!" heard round the Internet: Disney buys LucasFilm

Shares

It was the "NOOOoooooOOOOO!" heard round the Internet.

"Disney to Acquire Lucasfilm Ltd," stated the press release issued by the Walt Disney Company at 3:30 EDT.  The news came shortly before a web broadcast of a conference call to finalize details between the House of Mouse and the company that brought us Star Wars.

Naturally, we did what the rest of the Internet did--grabbed popcorn and watched as the news spread around the globe faster than you could say "Han shot first."
