Galaxy's Edge visitors will be able to join Chewbacca's crew

Rumours have been circulating for a long time that Disney was planning something special for its Star Wars theme park attractions. Yesterday, at the Disney fan club D23 expo, the entertainment giant announced that this will involve the creation of a fully immersive new world, called Galaxy's Edge.

Not a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, but Florida and California in the near future, this new world will give fans the chance to claim galactic citizenship and stay in a hotel which is a functioning part of the Star Wars universe. They can drink in the cantina and listen to music supplied by former Star Tours pilot Rex, and they can see and interact with characters like Chewbacca, BB8 and Kylo Ren.

Interaction won't be limited to the traditional Disney meet and greet. Instead, visitors to »

Disney's Star Wars Land Is Getting Life-Sized At-at Walkers

14 March 2017 3:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Disney announced that its highly-anticipated Star Wars Land theme parks will open at both DisneyWorld and Disneyland resorts in the year 2019, which will likely coincide with the release of Star Wars: Episode IX. Construction is currently under way at the Disneyland location, with a number of fans capturing new video and photos, with the construction site visible from Disneyland's Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. While there isn't much to be gleaned from these videos, two unique structures seem to indicate that the theme park is building real-life At-at Walkers.

Disney Geek debuted a two minute video over the weekend, which, at the thirty-second mark, reveals two structures that appear to be the frame for At-at Walkers, although the view is partially obstructed. A Twitter used dubbed "MouseInfo" got a much better, unobstructed view, which shows both structures, which are strikingly similar to the top of an At-at Walker. »

But we do have new details about why Disney decided to use their Hong Kong theme park for the Iron Man Experience and its Stark Expo.

The Los Angeles Times debuted the artwork, though no further details were revealed. The art shows Ant-Man/Giant Man fighting off a number of robotic enemies, with visitors joining him in battle.Hong Kong Disneyland announced in November that one of these new Marvel-themed areas will »

Jimmy Kimmel Brings Unsuspecting Tourists to the Oscars

26 February 2017 8:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you didn’t receive an invitation to the 2017 Oscars, you may want to book a seat on a Sunday evening Star Tours come next year, because host Jimmy Kimmel just brought an entire bus-full of tourists into the Dolby Theater.

On the count of three, Kimmel instructed the seated attendees to shout “Mahershala” as the flustered crowd marched in with wide eyes and selfie sticks in hand.

Good-natured celebs posed for pictures with the sweatshirt-clad citizens. Jeff Bridges was kind enough to fist-bump a passing tourist while Nicole Kidman got a lucky kiss on the hand from Gary, a visitor from Chicago.

The bit, orchestrated by Kimmel, involved a group of unsuspecting Hollywood tourists who were let into the Dolby during the Oscars. Kimmel brought the group to the front of the theater with Gary and his fiancee Vicky leading the pack.

“I now pronounce you husband and wife,” Washington said as he was awkwardly sandwiched between the couple. “Kiss the bride,” Washington then said before handing his mic back to Kimmel with a ‘my work here is done’ look on his face.

Kimmel was quick to authenticate the wedding. »

Star Wars Land at Disney Parks: What We Know

23 February 2017 7:49 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the cost to get into Disneyland at about $100 a ticket (or more?), it is pretty apparent that the Mouse, his house and everybody else at the CEO level clean up when people come to Disneyland and Disney World. So rather than rest on their laurels, the folks at Disney have decided to turn things up a notch and add even more money to their coffers. They did this by recently announcing that Disney is going to add Star Wars Land to both of its theme parks.

For those of us who grew up on Star Wars, this news was met with a great deal of excitement and anticipation. Star Wars Land? Is it possible that such a magical place could exist? Might we actually get to fly X-Wing Fighters or even the Millennium Falcon? Might this one section of these famed themed parks become the new happiest place on earth? »

Rogue One Video Shows Cassian and K-2So's Alternate Fate

12 January 2017 4:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Rogue One is proving to be a fascinating case study in alternate universes, and there is enough video evidence to suggest that multiple different cuts with varying outcomes exist. Previous trailers and other TV spots and footage have all included moments or scenes that were deleted from the final theatrical version of the movie. And we've heard a number of the filmmakers, including director Gareth Edwards, his editors and various writers talk about how the movie changed over the course of some extensive reshoots. But more and more evidence arrives to prove that there is one very different movie floating around out there, locked away in some Disney vault next to Walt's frozen body. Now we have even more video evidence of what that alternate version may have looked like.

If you haven't seen the movie in the four weeks since its release, know that spoilers will be discussed openly and freely. »
