When George Lucas announced that he will sell his production company, Lucasfilm, LTD, to the Walt Disney Corporation, the internet immediately took to their keyboards
to express their thoughts on the matter. With a wealth of images to choose from, thanks to every Disney movie ever made, as well as still images gleaned from all of the beloved Star Wars movies, it's no wonder that what resulted was an influx of some very funny, very creative new memes and photos. Here are twenty of our favorites.
1. Tatooine Sunset
This a still taken from Star Wars, A New Hope features some familiar-looking mouse ears as the suns of Tatooine.
2. Princess Leia: Not Your Typical Disney Princess
First, her entire home planet gets destroyed, then, she accidentally kisses her brother. Then, her boyfriend gets frozen in Carbonite. Now, she has to put up with all these other flighty Princesses. Poor Leia!
