The Tweet Force Is Not Quite With Disney for 'Star Wars' Sequels

Lucasfilm

Blame whoever you like, but "Star Wars: Episode VII" by way of Walt Disney is actually happening.

Yep, our space man George Lucas passed his light saber on to Mickey Mouse (for a hefty $4.05 billion, of course), and, come 2015, the force will bring an all-new, hopefully-not-pillaged-and-dismembered extension of "Star Wars" into being. "Befuddled and nervous we all are," as Yoda might say.

After getting past the stage of sheer disbelief and rampant head shake-age, we couldn't help but wonder: What exactly will happen when Tatooine and Space Mountain collide? Will Wookie and Beast become friends? Will Jasmine and Leia share tips for keeping a taut midriff? Actor Simon Pegg got just as philosophical about the news on his Twitter feed, writing, "Does this mean Leia is now a Disney princess?" 

Pegg, sensing the humor potential, then opened the floodgates of snark to fellow tweeters by concocting the hashtag #DisneyStarWars.

The Twitter world, per usual, did not disappoint. Here are some of our favorite little gems.
