Well, reports are coming out that MGM has been aquired by Time Warner. Anyone know how this will affect the Disney-MGM Studios?

Nah, that's just one of those rumors that wont die. Time Warner buying MGM just means that Time Warner is the controlling party at MGM, but it doesnt void the agreement Disney has with them. I doubt Time Warner would cancel the deal. The deal gives MGM money and promotion for their stuff.

Just FYI, and a follow up to this, Sony ended up buying MGM, not Time Warner. Aparrently the reports were false.
