    Walt learned after Disneyland to buy up all the surrounding real-estate for Disney World.

    If Lucas really were a visionary, the Star Wars franchise was obviously a major hit before they started shooting Jedi - he could indeed have predicted the future potential of "Ewoks land" as a quasi-eco-tourism play, not that eco-tourism was much of a thing in 1983 but that's where the visionary bit comes in. He certainly could have afforded the land with the in-tact old growth trees by then, a shrewd land seller would have demanded a cut of the gross earnings for 50 years after release...

    Instead we got those two absolute cheeseball movies featuring poor actors in bad wrinkly brown fur costumes. And you can rewatch them endlessly with a D+ streaming subscription.

    You also forgot about the much more forgettable TV show. Some episodes are truly terrible, but others are surprisingly good.
