    Argh! This is really getting my nerve. We already know that Disney already bought Star Wars. Now I heard rumor that Disney is planning to buy Hasbro. OH NO YOU DON'T!!!! I won't let Disney buy Hasbro. If they does, then everything will be chao and fans of Hasbro will rough word on Disney for sure. Also they will sue them.

    Disney bought lucasfilms not star wars. And I hardly see how buying one company is buying everything.

    Well, I don't know what name of company for Star Wars. I hope that Hasbro will say no to Disney.

    Anyway I fail to see why Hasbro deserve as much misplaced enthusiasm/loyalty as you are presently demonstrating.

    Not really anything to cry about. It's not like Disney butchers and ruins the things they buy. They've done a good job so far anyway.

    The OP is hilarious, like you can do a single thing to stop them! Everything will be chaos? The fuck are you talking about? You act like Disney come in and destroy everything, like Hasbro doesn't do that themselves already!

    Disney has actually done very well with the companies they have bought, they tend to either keep people in the right positions or replace them with better people and they do leave them to their own devices (Marvel & Pixar for example). If something is working in a company than Disney leaves it alone. If a company like Hasbro does appear to be on sale, then I can think of far worse companies than Disney going by their acquisition background.

    The only thing Disney does mismanage is it's own stuff.

    As for why? Why not? If I had the money I'd try to buy many companies.

    Companies buy other companies? HOLY SHIT PEOPLE HOLD THE PHONES THIS IS A FUCKING REVELATION.

    Simply put, Disney buys other companies because it raises their profits. Buying Marvel gave them access to a great array of franchises if they needed them and a slice of the profits. Buying LucasFilm does the same.

    And Disney is not really some graveyard where franchises die, in general Disney is VERY successful. It's not like Marvel heeled over and croaked when Disney bought them.

    Pretty much every major company buys smaller companies on a fairly regular basis, sometimes it brings in big changes and sometimes its just money changing hands in the upper level. You can't do anything about it and honestly there's no point in trying to, its just business as usual.

    Speaking of Chao....I hope Discord didn't join it. If he does, then we are gone crazy for sure.

    Honestly though, it sounds like you didn't really make any analysis or did any research before complaining about Disney's recent acquisitions and planned acquisitions.

    The thing is, Disney buying Hasbro may not necessarily be a bad thing, just like how your post may not necessarily be valid just because you're upset.

    Also, could you elaborate how everything will be in chao after Disney buys Hasbro? Just asking for clarification on your post.

    No, it was a Marvel Studios film. Disney had nothing to do with it other than distribution and ownership of the studio.
