Disney Acquires Star Trek Rights Plans Star Wars vs Star Trek Trilogy

— Posted by Ryan


It seems like Disney grows their own money trees as they continue to purchase fan favorite franchises. Now owning Marvel and Star Wars, Disney has just acquired the rights to Star Trek in a bold move. Given that J.J. Abrams has already directed the latest Star Trek films and is currently working on Star Wars, Disney felt it made sense to move forward with a collaborative project. Their plan is to release a trilogy of films that intertwine the Star Trek and Star Wars universe and put the Federation up against the Empire.


“We are excited to have finally acquired the rights to Star Trek. After recently acquiring the rights to Star Wars, we feel that we should reignite the ‘fanboy’ debate of which universe is better. We will be releasing three films surrounded around the idea of the Federation venturing into familiar Star Wars territory. We’re very excited!”


Spock and Kirk against Vader?!?!

Spock and Kirk against Vader?!?!

What kind of plot could possibly do both films justice? Will there be a victor or will it result in a tie? These are all questions that many of us and many hardcore fanboys will be asking until the day this trilogy releases. I do have faith that Abrams will do both franchises justice and honor them both in his own way but the controversy surrounding these films is going to be extremely high. Oh and one more thing…April Fools.

First and foremost, Ryan Brown is a fan. He has been an avid fan of both the theater and cinema since an early age and his passion for both has been continually growing ever since. When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

    I wouldn’t trust anybody but JJ Abrams to do both movies justice. The Star Trek movies he has done are phenomenal.I was over Star Wars when they first produced the huge series, but I think that’s the whole point to generate new interest with this exciting collaboration. You go J.J.!
