CLASSIC MAD DEPT.
With news that the Star Wars franchise will soon be getting a reboot, here’s to hoping that the "Gulf Wars" series will never be revisited.
It would seem that the rumors might be true about J.J. Abrams directing the next Star Wars movie. In fact, we have it on good authority that he’s already updated his production company’s name and logo!
A blockbuster deal shook the entertainment industry today when Disney acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. As a result, Disney has added the massively lucrative Star Wars franchise to a roster that already boasts the Pixar films and Marvel properties — including the $1.5 billion-grossing The Avengers. But the biggest news arising from this deal is the announcement of upcoming Star Wars movies! Beginning with 2015's Episode VII, a slew of new sequels will ensure that legions of fans keep buying Darth Vader bathrobes and R2-D2 gravy boats for generations to come.
As George Lucas walks away with a few billion in cash and 40 million shares of Disney stock, MAD is excited to present the first look at the poster for the next chapter in the Star Wars saga!

(Please just bear with us, we’ve been drinking citrus soda and looking at pictures of doe-eyed brunettes all day and we’re a little loopy…)
