The relationship between Florida & Disney started
in 1965 when Walt began buying up worthless swampland in what was then the middle of nowhere

Disney wanted land, power, and control and they wanted it cheap!… #disney #florida #reedycreek #politics #news
Wasn't just cuz Walt wanted to build another Theme-Park,

“Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow”

Disney wanted to build a self-sustaining 'imagineered' city where folks would live, work & play under the auspices of Disney… #disney #epcot
So under that premise, the Florida Legislature let Disney have independent autonomy under the

Reedy Creek Improvement Zone

Where Disney would be its own county gov, run its own police, fire, sanitation, etc without any of that messy local political oversight #disney #florida

My #fandommenace friends (or whatever name that’s being used these days by #starwars fans): The line “that’s how we’ll win; not by destroying what we hate, but by saving what we love” is as cringe and nonsensical now as it was then. In context.
However, I think we can apply that to our own situation now. We all want the Disney Trilogy to go away and never, EVER come back, but how does media thrive? By getting attention. I would like to suggest a way that we can destroy what we had by saving what we love.
STOP GIVING THE DISNEY TRILOGY ATTENTION. Don’t put it on ranking lists. Don’t respond to people on Twitter talking about it. NONE OF IT. Any time you give it the time of day you give it legitimacy. STOP IT.

Back in 2013, when details first started circulating about the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy, I was beyond hyped. I was eager to see our heroes from the OT back together again. I was especially hyped to see Luke Skywalker as a Jedi Master. I supported Star Wars being bought by Disney.
I was beyond stoked to see the continuation of the saga post-ROTJ. The teaser trailer dropped for TFA in late 2014. I was left speechless. We get the second teaser trailer in early 2015. Seeing Darth Vader’s mask and Han Solo and Chewie had me completely excited.
Then fast-forward to October of that year where we see the official trailer. Again, I was in complete awe. Went opening night to see TFA, where I was absolutely in love with the movie. Though Luke’s appearance was brief, it left me eagerly awaiting the sequel.
