Disney subsidiary compliments other Disney subsidiary over breaking record.

I’m not going to link to that ridiculous piece of marketing agitprop; suffice it to say that LucasFilms* sent a congratulatory note to Marvel Studios over Infinity War beating The Force Awakens for domestic gross.  As both are actually owned by, you, know, Disney and everything this is probably not exactly a spontaneous, gracious gesture. It’s certainly not really evocative of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg giving golf claps to each other.

I dunno why this was particularly exasperating, but it was. Maybe because of the LucasArts thing below.   I’m kind of pissed that there hasn’t been anything except Battlefronts since the Death Star took over. Nerdrage exists in all of us, it seems.

*I originally wrote LucasArts, but of course Disney closed the company down and outsourced the production of new Star Wars games to EA.  Now there’s a [expletive deleted] metaphor for you.
