Bob Iger: No Disney Logo Before Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Star_Wars_The_Force_Awakens_trimThose of you wondering if The Force Awakens would open up to Disney’s iconic “When You Wish Upon A Star” fanfare now have an answer – no, it won’t. The man giving the answer? None other than Disney CEO Bob Iger himself!

 

According to Star Wars Junk, Iger recently held a Skype discussion with over 500 college students. The Force Awakens was inevitably brought up, but all he said was that Disney’s logo and fanfare would not be present before the movie, though Lucasfilm’s logo and fanfare would be. The Lucasfilm logo, of course, does not have the Twentieth Century Fox anthem set before it, since Fox has absolutely nothing to do with the production of this film. For those unfamiliar with the Fox-free Lucasfilm fanfare, it sounds like this (although it might be a bit different in the new movie, since John Williams is composing new material):

 

 

It’s not too surprising a decision, considering that Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe movies also forgo the Disney logo in favor of the logo of Marvel Studios, the subsidiary producing the film. The only question this raises is the matter of whether or not we’ll see the Bad Robot logo pop up before “A Long Time Ago, In A Galaxy Far, Far Away…” or if they save it for the end of the credits.
