Currently, at least one member of Black Dog Productions is pretty damn excited!
For those of the non-Disney Dork persuasion,
you have my sympathies let me catch you up on the awesome, Dark Star-sized news. At last week’s D23 Expo, i.e., the ultimate in Disney Dorknification, CEO Bob Iger announced that both Disney World and Disney Land will be seeing expansions of – you guessed it – all things Luke, Leia, Obi Wan, and R2D2.
I can’t say that I was totally surprised by the news. It was only a matter of time after Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012 that they would be going down this interstellar highway. As someone who’s been a rabid Disney World fan since my first visit in 1993, and one who has proudly lost count of how many times I have gotten lost in its magic, having a whole new world – literally – to get lost in, jacks the Dork excitement factor through the roof. Or in this case, through the galaxy. Far, far, away.
I won’t list all the cool Rebel Force deets here, as I’ll get so excited that game-show-dollar-machine brain of mine will kick into high gear, and nothing will make sense as the thoughts rattling around in my brain will promptly explode all over your computer in some weird kind of intergalaxian primordial ooze. Thankfully, our earthly news outlets, (here and here), have got me covered. No need to worry about whether or not intergalaxian primordial ooze is covered by your laptop’s warranty. You’re welcome.
Enjoy the ride.
Who else among my Disney Dork friends are completely losing their minds over the news? What would you like to see included in these new lands? Obi Wan Ton Soup? Jabba Jelly? A whole new line of Darth Vader vinegars? Or perhaps something more along the lines of Boba Fett Fear-Inducing French Fries? Or my particular favorite – Tatooine Tequila! Let’s hear it! What would be some of your favorites?
