    Disney continues to misquote Ewok Celebration lyric on merch

    Quickly after Disney got the Star Wars IP, they created this Ewok mug:
    https://www.shopdisney.com/wicket-mu...izable-1365219
    It says "Nub Nub". A bit triggered, I sent Disney a letter detailing to them that is not the correct phrase. "Yub Nub" has always been the official phrase from the song.
    I linked to the sheet music as seen here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Ewok_Celebration
    I urged them to correct the mistake immediately.

    They must have clueless marketing and sales people who are isolated in their ignorance with no one knowing or researching their $4B investment.
    Because I have found the error again! They will not stop:

    (Disney owns Hot Topic if you did not know.)

    I told people, Fox is just another rung on the "whole" ladder they plan to own.

    I'm not 100% sure Disney owns Hot Topic. Any actual proof to confirm this? The information I read says they are owned by Sycamore Partners as of 2016. The store and employees seem very "Emo" for Disney. And while it's a far cry from Spencer Gifts, they do have some questionable clothing options for sale there. I don't care, not offended or bothered in the least. But it's a strange place. I guess that would explain the sudden explosion of Disney movie property merchandise available there lately.

    You're talking as if Disney doesn't have anything to do with questionable content. Yet their history, -between the lines-, proves very different. They're actually into lots of stuff that doesn't seem very Disney/Kid friendly.

    I have to apologize about stating Disney owning Hot Topic. This was hearsay and I should have Googled it first.
    Hot Topic has always had a lot of Disney licensed merchandise. It's just even more now that Disney owns Marvel and Star Wars.
    Disney being able to market to "goth"/"punk" kids shows the power of what a brand can do outside of their family friendly core.
    Star Wars did the opposite. They started off serious (IV) and got dark (V), but then went kid friendly with the Ewoks (VI).

    I have nothing against Hot Topic in general and wear their licensed merchandise all the time to the office. However, the designs for The Last Jedi clothes have been boring and completely lazy. I haven't bought any. I love interesting designs like vehicle blueprints.
