DIsney has sucked for a long long time. What I think of them now is mainly as producers, not anything creative.

OP: For Disney's future treatment of Star Wars and Indy fan creations, you'll have to look at what they've done with Marvel properties. As far as I know not much has changed with respect to Marvel fan creations.

As for SWTOR not much will change, Lucausfilm mainly collected the licensing checks from EA/Bioware. They have some input on what is allowed and disallowed, but that's about it. The contract EA/Bioware signed with Lucausfilm still stands and nothing outside of signing a new contract can change that. Disney has to honer all prior contracts made by Lucusfilm, just like they had to honor all contracts made by Marvel (X-Men is still licensed to Fox, Spider-Man to Sony, and Avengers/Iron Man/Thor/Captain America to Paramount)

As for Mickey Mouse being written into any SW movies of games, All I can say is... I haven't heard about Disney forcing Mickey or any other character into issues of Spider-Man over the last 2 years. So I really doubt it will happen with SW.

The only major issue I see would be with ILM, I cannot imagine other production studios giving money to Disney (indirectly) for CGI effects. While ILM was independent separate production companies supporting them would be fine, but handing money over to your competition seems like a bad idea to me.

You mean like Disney won't let robot chicken make fun of Star Wars anymore or what? Who cares they are making new movies. They aren't going to shut down your mickey mouse fan fiction. Only if you're making money off it should you be worried.

Disney has always sucked. They literally made only one movie, changed the characters a bit and sold it to people over and over because the general public is too stupid to notice. Want proof? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWKo5veKjVU

Disney is a member of the MPAA, an organization known outside Hollywood solely for suing everyone and their dog, the majority of whom weren't making a profit.

Disney has a history of stopping people from making money using unlicensed artwork.

I like the idea of fan art and fan fiction but it crosses the line when people are making money from unlicensed artwork.

Edit: And you included an Adam Sandler movie in a list of "great films", therefore your opinion is invalid. About anything. Forever.

Edit 2: And you actually think Disney had anything at all to do with most of your list? Disney, the company who thinks open toe shoes are too sexy for its employees to wear in Disneyland? That's who you think is responsible for Trainspotting? Seriously? Plenty of companies, including my last job, are owned by other companies who have little to no interaction with them. I'd bet my left nut that's the case here.
