The latest rumor in the entertainment news circuit is that Disney is on the move to buy Hasbro, one of the largest toymakers in the world and the owner of well-known franchises like Transformers, My Little Pony and Magic: the Gathering.

The news comes in less than a week after Disney made the headlines with acquisition of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise.

Disney's reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products.
