The Guardians of the Galaxy post-post-post-credits scene will blow your fanboy mind
The best part for me was recasting Chris Pratt as Indiana Jones and then as Han Solo in the Star Wars reboot, and then eventually licensing his voice and likeness for $1.5 billion so they can keep featuring him in movies even after he retires.Β
Even after he's DEAD.
LOL, that's right...
Chris Pratt's coterie of characters has reliably earned Disney millions for over 15 years, but Disney has an unprecedented plan to build a new revenue stream out of Pratt himself.
Ten years after Disney purchased the image, voice, and "soul" rights from then-star, now-Harrison-Ford-esque-recluse Robert Downey Jr. for a cool $1 billion, the studio has announced the acquisition of the same rights from Chris Pratt for $1.5 billion. Pratt, whose image in The Littlest Jedis of the Galaxy, is one of Disney's most valuable commodities as the lead in the Guardians of the Galaxy television programs and the rebooted Indiana Jones and Star Wars franchises.
To celebrate the acquisition, Disney has announced Apple AR owners will have the ability to be perceived as their favorite Chris Pratt characters by other Apple AR owners using a novel app that wraps their body in a head-to-toe, lifelike animation.
While Pratt could not be reached for comment, his representatives say the actor doesn't believe the acquisition will discourage him from taking real life roles, likely a reaction to Robert Downey Jr.'s recent behavior. Downey Jr. was last spotted by paparazzi in 2028, boiling his boots in the backwoods of Claire Danes' Big Sur property. Danes, reportedly, had no idea that the actor had been there for the last 13 months prior.
"Boot stew," Downey Jr. is reported to have said, before retreating into his RV and taking off for parts unknown.
More like mocking the fact that Disney owns Marvel, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Pixar, and will be milking all of their franchises as much as possible for the foreseeable future.Β
It's a pretty impressive array of brands for them.
Agreed, and I had forgotten that they own Winnie the Pooh and the Muppets too:
The joke of the article Geege stashed is that eventually Disney will own everyone.Β

California passes bill that will allows Disney's genetically engineered characters to rebuild Los Angeles under condition of strict regulations
If that's the world 20 years from now, I will consider it a fail.
Well, it follows this:

Which could happen any time, really.
