What Does Disney Buying Star Wars Have To Do With Open Source?

So what does the fact that the House of Mouse now owns a story from a long time ago in a galaxy far away mean for open source? In truth, probably not much at this time, but as a geek, how can you not be interested in this story?

Actually there is a potential open source angle that I will cover before I dive in to some of the other stuff. Over the past year or so Disney has shown a benevolent side towards open source, releasing some libraries and software from Disney Animation and Disney-owned Pixar to the open source community.
