• 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?

      Patton 360 is good. My only complaint about the series was it rushed through late 1944 and the rest of the war too fast.
