The poor performance of Disney’s summer Lone Ranger movie will cost the company between $160 million and $190 million in losses during the current quarter, the company’s CFO said on Tuesday, as reported by Investor Place.

But never mind what they blew on the movie – what about all the ridiculous Lone Ranger merchandise?  They really went way overboard!  The Lone Ranger was rated PG-13, which cut out a lot of family audiences, and post-release audience demographics showed that the movie was mostly popular with people over 50, yet Disney made a ton of Lone Ranger toys and other products for kids.  What were Disney’s merchandisers smoking?

Mickey Chewbacca

New hints from Walt Disney Co. illuminate that fan favorites like Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca the Wookiee might soon be joining the Star Wars cast that already entertain parkgoers at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California, and it’s all thanks to Disney’s acquisition of “Star Wars” maker Lucasfilm Ltd. last year.
