Think about this. Disney is aquiring Industrial And Magic, as well as Skywalker Sound. How many movies in the last several decades have relied on those companies as cornerstones of their productions? It's hard to think of a single major production since the 70's that hasn't.
This is a full bore competition crushing move by Disney. A way to gain a virtual monopoly on high quality movie sound and special effects. It's a potential deathblow to the entire movie industry.
The anti-Monopoly laws exist in the United States for a reason. They protect both industries and consumers from outright racketeering tactics by companies who have manuevered themselves into a position of overwhelming ownership and influence over a particular field of commercial endevour.

Does the deal include Indy, as well? Maybe we'll get a Captain America/ Indiana Jones crossover.....

Actually, Goofy is the Sith Lord, Donald's a Stormtrooper, and Mickey is Luke Skywalker.
