BlackBerry Priv, Nexus 5X and other Android phones appear in Bell Canada's Star Wars ad
On Friday, December 18th, Star Wars: The Force Awakens premieres at your local theater. And that means unless you're a card carrying member of the Star Wars fan club, you might want to steer clear of the theaters and even other media like television, at least for a few days. A good reason why can be found in the video that accompanies this article.

The video shows a Star Wars-tinged commercial for Canada's Bell. The ad depicts a number of Android powered handsets hurtling through space, including models made by Samsung, and the BlackBerry Priv. Later in the ad, other phones like the LG G4 and Nexus 5X make an appearance.

With all of those Android phones displayed in the ad, now would be a good time to remind you that Steve Jobs' Trust could be a huge benefactor from the amazing popularity of Star Wars. Remember, the franchise is now the property of the Disney empire. The Mickey Mouse outfit purchased George Lucas' film company for $4 billion three years ago. In theory, Disney stockholders would benefit from a hugely successful film. And who is the largest Disney stockholder? None other than the Steven P Jobs Trust. The late Apple co-founder received all of those shares when Pixar was purchased by the House of Mouse in 2006.

That is the same reason why Jobs' Trust could profit from strong sales of Motorola DROID branded handsets. Verizon uses the DROID name under a license granted it by Lucasfilm, which is owned by Disney.
