Now that Disney bought Star Wars, say goodbye to Fox’s opening and fanfare


Now that Disney owns Lucasfilm, the opening and fanfare from 20th Century Fox that accompanied the previous Star Wars films will no longer be a tradition for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. Of course it wouldn’t make sense for Disney to put a rival’s opening in front of their movies, but it will be somewhat missed.

The 20th Century Fox opening has been a part of Star Wars ever since the debut of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in 1977. Disney has confirmed that the Fox opening won’t be in the new movie.

But just because Disney bought out a studio, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the company will be inserting its opening. For example, Disney bought out Marvel, but Paramount still had the rights to use its opening in front of movies like The Avengers and Iron Man 3. Now that the rights are over, the Paramount opening isn’t a part anymore, starting with Thor: The Dark World. Instead of having a Disney opening, the company decided to use Marvel Studios as the main opening. That’s pretty cool of Disney.

In the distant future in a galaxy called the Milky Way, Star Wars: Episode VII opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
