On December 5th, Disney is going to transform Epcot’s Spaceship Earth into the Death Star to celebrate Star Wars and the release of Rogue One. It’s going to be done using digital projections, but still!
Unfortunately, the event is invite-only and all of the spaces have been filled. Dammit. Transforming into the Death Star is Spaceship Earth’s destiny! There should be something like this year round at the upcoming Star Wars land expansion.

Disney recently unveiled some new concept art for their upcoming Star Wars-themed attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. The art was revealed at a D23: Destination D presentation at Disney World, where it was also revealed that the popular Star Tours — the Adventure Continues ride will feature a new mission based on Star Wars: Episode VIII.
Both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida will feature new Star Wars-themed zones. The 14-acre additions are said to feature a large replica of the Millennium Falcon, giving visitors a chance to “pilot the fastest ship int he galaxy”, along with a street market, a fancy club, and a cantina! Disney has not revealed an opening date for either location thus far, but you can take a closer look at the concept art below. [click to continue…]

The first time I saw that mouse droid in Star Wars, I wanted it. Needed it. I’m sure I’m not alone.
That’s why I was happy to hear that sometime around mid-December, a remote-controlled Mouse Droid will be rolling into select locations at both Disneyland (If I had to guess, Star Trader) and Walt Disney World Resort. Hopefully, it will also be offered on the Shop Disney Parks app at some point.
I don’t know if it makes the high pitched squeal or how much it’ll cost, but I need it. Check out the Mouse Droid scene in A New Hope below. [click to continue…]

As far as I’m concerned, Disney and Lucasfilm have knocked it out of the park with their Go Rogue video series. The fourth and final installment is out now and it’s probably my favorite. Especially the end.
The filmmakers did a stellar job showing off the new Star Wars Rogue One toys and I can’t wait to see the submissions people enter into the contest. You can check out more info on that, along with all four videos in the series below. [click to continue…]
