• Star Wars Theme Park Possible, Disney Says

      Disney appears one step closer to opening a Star Wars theme park, if we can trust that recent comments from Disney CEO Bob Iger aren't just a Jedi mind trick. After acquiring Lucasfilm last October for more than $4 billion, a theme park might compliment Disney's big plans for the franchise.




      "In addition to the Star Wars feature films that weve already talked about, were also working on opportunities for television and our parks," Iger said during an earnings call Tuesday. "Its still very early in the process. Well announce details as these developments evolve."

        I want that snowspeeder-around-the-AT-AT-ride with laser tag features for all the passengers to earn proficiency scores on - while some sit backwards as the tail-gunner! And a part on the ride underground, with ice caves, wampas, and probots is essential!

        The roller coaster around the AT-AT should likely be the tallest section of the theme park. And it should be the first thing - and signature thing - that they build!

        Maybe they could make plans to do a walk-through tour of the AT-AT set up to its EU / movie specifications (including a double-speeder bike bay and a cockpit access hatch where you can view friends flying around you on the snowspeeder roller-coaster ride) but the coaster has to be the first thing ever built!

        Hoth is not always my favorite thing about the SW movies. In fact, it gets cliche because everybody likes ESB so much and I like finding my own thing - like awesome tours with Jocasta Nu around a reproduction of the Jedi library where people can read Incom's, Kuat Drive Yards, and Sienar Fleet System's financial reports.

        But the dang AT-AT battle roller coaster ride is essential, essential, essential.

        I'm not sure I made myself clear. I may have to post the line above again.

        Is it bad that I'm perfectly happy with just Star Tours?

      Why can't I post pics right now?

      Oh, yeah, it is acting squirrelly, I'll have it looked into.

      I liked the "Zero Hour" two part season finale. I'm glad that the show didn't get rid of Thrawn, who is such a strong character, the way that

      Timothy Zahn must've LOVED these two: Interdictor Cruisers, Thrawn in ground battle gear, his plans would've been flawless were it not for the (blatantly-obvious)

      How did you spend your Saturday?

      Mostly grading and TVing: saw the girls basketball team come up one game short of a STATE TITLE (still a great season, ladies) and other sports and cartoons

      Star Wars Rebels - Season 3

      I'm going to start spoiler discussion.

      I liked seeing Thrawn with Death Troopers.

      So much for Fulcrum 2.0. But I don't trust

      There's a lot to unpack in this 2-parter, "Zero Hour." I'll wait for others to see it... impatiently so. But I'll say, wow.

      How is the weather by you today?

      Today was supposed to have rain. Nope: the winds blew those clouds out and made it a bit "cool" (mid-60s IIRC). Tomorrow's NASCAR race should

      I'm so glad the basketball gods colluded to remove UCLA so that we no longer have to hear from THAT DAD...or at least hear less from him.

      Still have 1/2 the Elite 8 (but only a Kansas win would give me a single Final Four team), and the OSU women's team lost to ND. I'm now completely de-tourney'd.
