I am a little worried about this…
What is the status of the Star Wars license between FF and Disney (now that they own SW)? (I really hope FF has a 10y plus contract before Disney purchased Lucas Arts)
I am asking because I heard news that the Dark Horse (publisher of Star Wars comics) license is up after 2013, and Disney will NOT be renewed . Dark Horse has been publishing the Star Wars comics for 20 plus years.
I really like this game and it would be a shame if now that Disney has the license it would kick FF out and leave this game to die out.
I am looking forward to many expasions and games with this LCG.
Thank you for the space to ask my question.

I thought that they dropped the Dark Horse contract because they own Marvel now? What does Disney own that is in competition with FFG?
"Truth has power. And if we all gravitate toward similar ideas, maybe we do so because those ideas are true…written deep within us. And when we hear the truth, even if we don't understand it, we feel that truth resonate within us…vibrating with our unconscious wisdom. Perhaps the truth is not learned by us, but rather, the truth is re-called…re-membered…re-cognized…as that which is already inside us." Peter Solomon, The Lost Symbol
Haha, I'm not to worried about disney, if they dont think they can do it better they will pay people to keep doing a good job and making money. Think of them like a big Beer distrubutor like miller, they buy up smaller craft brewerys and tell them to keep doing what your doing and will see if we can help you make some extra money maybe get your product out to a larger distribution area.
Hopefully thats what will happen with FFG, look at ESPN, marvel all that stuff disney is not in the biz of making card games i dont doubt FFG will keep there contract. I think a good example is the new marvel deck building game that just came out. that was passed off to a 3rd party boardgame company outside of the disney bubble and with SW's popularity and the games new release, if anything they will ask them to make sets that release with the movie (the hobbit add ons to the LOTR LCG)
My 2 cents.
p.s. i lived in orlando for about 10 years so im pretty pro disney, they know how to provide quality entertainment and they know how to make money. if anything i would be worried that Disney would try to buy FFG.

Unless things go south for the game I doubt Disney or Lucas will pull the contract here. FFG has so far done about the best job with the Star Wars liscense quality wise. And when you break it down to apples to apples the only other company to try an integrated system of games under the same liscense didn't do such a hot job.
While I'm not sure about this business with Dark Horse, as the only "news" I've seen is this, I can't see them pulling the plug on FFG given how successful the X-Wing game has been for them so far. Pulling the license from a company that is actually making money in order to give it to another company who might make money just doesn't make sense to me, anyway.
