Solo could have been about 30 minutes shorter, but I liked the concept and was super stoked to see Opie reunited with Lucas and Ford over the film.

    That said, Disney paid just over $4B for SW in 2012 and the four films since have box office receipts of nearly $5B. They also paid just over $4B for Marvel back in and those 16 films since have box office receipts of over $18B. Finally, Disney paid just over $7B for Pixar in 2006 and their receipts since have been over $10B on 14 films. And that's just the box office receipts, not to mention all the licensing fees, parks tie-ins and upcoming Disney+ series that will yield subscribers. Sure, Marvel is the super star, but pretty solid investments overall!
    I can see Pixar and Marvel continuing to rake in the money. I think Star Wars did that well because people expected it to be like the old Star Wars. I don't think it will continue unless they change the way they do the movies. I know A LOT of die hard Star Wars fans who aren't really interested in seeing another Star Wars movie that Disney makes.

    I am in that camp. I am a huge fan of the original Star Wars concept. These new ones I can't watch. I make only make it about 10 or 15 minutes in and lose interest.

    I guess I'd have to say the jury is still out on this one. This December's film will mark the end of the third trilogy and effectively the end of the Skywalker story. After that Disney has plans for additional SW movies in 2022, 2024 and 2026. Maybe another trilogy? Maybe three more stand alone titles. I'm sure Disney has already made their money back on SW and will continue to rake in money despite what your vast number of die hard SW fan friends may think. It's a great property to own!

    They will continue to make money for a while based on the name alone. I am not sure it will continue for 3 more generations though.

    Yep! Pop culture is a relatively recent phenomenon, basically just about a century old. Heck, maybe old Walt even started it with Mickey Mouse in 1928. With Hollywood basically at a loss for new ideas and rock & roll essentially already dead. Professional sports seem to be hanging on despite their dings with politics, officiating and athlete safety. However, it should be interesting to see what our great grand kids interest is in things like Mickey Mouse, Stark Trek, Bruce Springsteen or the New England Patriots. Let alone going to visit a theme park when you might be able to have an even better experience in your own living room. Who knows?

    No, it will all change with Zefram Cochrans first warp jump in about 35 years.

    Right? Like Disney just making live action remakes or Frozen 2 instead of coming up with new animated movie ideas. How the Cowboys have always been "America's Team", but you mention the New England Patriots. Is Bruce Springsteen even a thing now? I don't hear "Born in the USA" played anywhere. Star Trek will probably live on, unless someone comes along and makes their fans unhappy.

    Too late, they've done that.
