This sucks. :( I'm surprised Disney would want to outsource games. Considering how good they are doing with their own movie productions, you'd think they'd want to keep their properties close to home or maybe acquire a new gaming company or even expand Lucasarts.. Maybe there were more issues going on at Lucasarts than whats been released publicly.

I think Disney is just consolidating all the IPs so they dont have like 6 millions companies out there



"That fairy needs to stop shouting in my ear, or I'm going to throw her friend I have trapped in the bottle into a lava pit or something. HEY, LISTEN! No, YOU listen. If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link
