No! The Walt Disney Company has just shut down the LucasArts game studio! Approximately 150 people were laid off and any video games that were in the process of being created have been canceled.
Here’s a statement that the Walt Disney Company offered after the announcement that they were shutting down the game studio:
After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games. As a result of this change, we’ve had layoffs across the organization. We are incredibly appreciative and proud of the talented teams who have been developing our new titles.
Are YOU upset that LucasArts has been canceled? Does this mean there will never be another Monkey Island game? Because that’s really upsetting!
Disney has teamed with PetSmart to introduce a new line of pet apparel and toys! Each of the items is Disney-branded, including fun designs and some of our favorite Disney characters – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Tinker Bell, Kermit the Frog, Tigger and more!
You can pick up the line in PetSmart stores or online at PetSmart.com. Our dogs were lucky enough to test out some of the items, and they LOVE them! They make sure to dig through their bin of toys until they find their favorite Disney characters, and they carry them around all day. Which of course WE love since we’re huge fans of Disney!
This awesome line is great for any pet owner and pet who loves Disney and Disney characters! It’s just too cute! Let us know if YOU pick up any of the Disney items at PetSmart!

The Walt Disney Company is reportedly working on a live streaming TV app that would allow viewers to stream live programming anywhere with an internet connection. The live streaming TV app would start off by streaming ABC shows.
The app would be available to cable and satellite subscribers.
The app is excited to arrive in the near future, maybe even sometime this year! Does this sound like an app YOU would use?
