Undoubtedly! I'm in complete agreement with you there. But that's why he's cashing out his chips now.

No, he's cashing out now so that there wouldn't be some huge probate fight over the IP should he pass away. This way it's in Disney's hands and he doesn't have to worry about Star Wars tearing apart his kids and their families after he's gone. Probably did them a huge favor. Now they can just split the $4 billion.
