Sellout News: After the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney, the widely loathed Yoda adverts for Vodafone are now only the second worst thing to happen to the Star War franchise.

After the news that Star Wars creator George Lucas sold his production company Lucasfilm to Walt Disney in a deal worth £2.5 billion, fans around the world have found something much worse to hate, rather than the Vodafone ads featuring the diminutive Jedi Master.

“I thought Lucas letting Yoda’s character shill for some crappy mobile phone company was the single worst thing he could have done to my childhood memories – but selling out to Disney is even crappier,” sobbed one Star Wars fan.

Although widely criticised by fans around the world, news of the sale was met with great enthusiasm by some. “We wish George Lucas and Disney all the best for the future,” said a spokesman for Vodafone.

“We would also like to profoundly thank George for now making Vodafone only the second most hated multinational company associated with the Star Wars franchise.”
