Matt takes questions about Magic, just like Maro!
“Magic: The Gathering” and Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro since 1999, might find themselves under new ownership by Disney in the middle of next year. After purchasing Lucasfilm last week for almost $4 billion, a rumor has surfaced today that Disney might also acquire Hasbro.
Hasbro currently holds the rights to create licensed “Star Wars” toys, and Disney’s acquisition of the Pawtucket, Rhode Island based game and toy company would allow them to directly control their “Star Wars” merchandise profits.
Hasbro is the owner of several notable properties such as “Transformers,” “G.I. Joe.,” “My Little Pony,” and many others. Wizards of the Coast holds “Dungeons and Dragons,” “Magic: The Gathering,” and “Kaijudo.”
“Kaijudo” and other animated series might move from The Hub to the Disney Channel if this rumor is true.
We might also see a “Magic: The Gathering” cartoon or movie emerge produced by Disney.
Texas Patent Firm Asks Judge to Shut Down Magic: The Gathering: Online
A Texas intellectual property firm has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Wizards of the Coast—but, intriguingly, not parent company Hasbro—alleging that Magic: The Gathering’s online version violates patents it holds on a video game you’ve probably never heard of.
