Anti-trust lawyers must be wringing their hands with glee at this one: MTV Geek is saying that after acquiring Lucasfilm (pending approval) Disney will be turning to Hasbro. Or rather, that they’re having “discussions.”
Buying Hasbro would give Disney the rights to Transformers, G.I. Joe, Dungeons and Dragons, and My Little Pony, among others. And by folding in the toys, they’d be getting a bigger share of the Star Wars pie as well.

I can just see it now… “Power! Unlimited Power!” ;)
So what, 20 years of so before Disney owns everything and is the dominant global superpower?
One thing I love about CJ is that everyone understands that mergers create antitrust issues. Heehee!
I’m already picturing the massive sh*tstorm bronies will be throwing around, what with their delusions that MLP is for adults and Disney will “kiddy-fy” it…
