Lucasfilm, the Disney-owned production company behind "Star Wars," is suing someone for starting their own lightsaber academy.

For a company worth billions, Lucasfilm (a subsidiary of Disney) really has no chill.

The production company founded by George Lucas responsible for the "Star Wars" series is reportedly suing a man named Michael Brown (no, not that Michael Brown) for starting his own school for aspiring jedi's. Brown's Lightsaber Academy was reportedly warned numerous times by Lucasfilm to cease its enterprise because of copyright infringement, but Brown attempted in retaliation to trademark the name of his company (Lightsaber Academy) instead.

As a result of Brown's disrespectful attitude and refusal to cooperate, Lucasfilm's lawsuit is demanding Brown to pay up to $2 million in each trademark infringed upon. Yikes. 

Brown reportedly operates more than one jedi school, in several cities across America, including New York. Their classes offer education on learning the "8 core principles" of using a lightsaber, among other things. Would you attend? Would you sue?
