Earlier this week the artist excited millions of Star Wars fans when he said that he had been contacted by Disney about the new trilogy of films.

Disney’s Infinity project leaked


By: Guy Cocker Disney‘s game division has had a difficult 2012.

So Disney Has Become Palpatine, Good to Know


Disney has always had delusions of grandeur, yup, we all knew that but it’s gone beyond Han Solo’s charming egotism and turned into Palpatine insanity. I think it’s fair to say that Disney, or as I like to call it, the Mouse Corporation, has officially gone over to the dark side and wants to make everything one with the Empire. The Sith will rule entertainment. I mean *cough* Disney will monopolize the entertainment world. Okay yeah, there is no good way to []
