From a cost control perspective, this would make a lot of sense. I also think the licensing (similar to Marvel and USF) is huge. Keep the license agreements, sit back and collect $$$$ without any expenses or effort. Sounds like a good way to keep the cash flow strong.

And a jail that misbehavers can be thrown in. Based on some threads I'm certain it would have a very high occupancy rate.

All kidding aside, even if there are talks between Disney and Hasbro, it's far less likely to be about a straight-out acquisition and more likely to be Disney sitting down with them to fine-tune or otherwise revise (or reinforce) the Star Wars license Hasbro is operating under, now that Disney has taken over the Lucas empire.

Either that or they're trying to get rid of Universal by gradually taking over every property in their theme parks

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the original plans for AK include a Beastly Kingdom with fantasy creatures? That could be Awesome!
