New Snippets of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Anyone at Disney’s California Adventure on Thursday was treated to a preview of the new World of Color show hosted by Mickey Mouse and Neil Patrick Harris.

During the show, the most famous rides at Disneyland are featured in a brilliant display of colored water, plumes of fire, and new screens on the ferris wheel and California Screaming.

During the feature on Star Tours, we see Poe Dameron in his flight suit, and we see a black-gloved hand reach out to touch R2-D2.  We also see the much beloved BB8. 

There was an audible gasp from Star Wars fans in the crowd as they saw the new footage, even if it was just a few moments’ worth.

May the 4th Be With You: Star Wars Day!

Happy Star Wars Day!

It seems like this is the biggest May 4th Star Wars Day ever, as fans who were not in the know are celebrating for the first time given the post-Star Wars Celebration excitement and The Force Awakens hype.

Even Vanity Fair is getting into the mix, launching their May issue with the Star Wars cast-past and present-on the cover. (Harrison Ford is there, and I’m sure the fact that Annie Leibovitz is the photographer had something to do with it)

In honor of the momentous, should-be-a-national-holiday, here are some SWCA pictures, and a few more from Disneyland.

Photo Gallery and Sneak Peek of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I was lucky enough to be in the first group of fans into The Force Awakens exhibit on Saturday morning at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim. 

Here is what I saw….

The really interesting thing about this display is that each costume had a list of the materials used to make each item.  This is a huge nod to cosplayers who create their own amazing costumes to show their love for Star Wars.

What do you think about the new costumes?

Up Next: Star Wars Celebration Anaheim

Well, it’s finally here.  In a few short days I’ll be making the short drive up the 5 Freeway to Anaheim, CA, to the Star Wars Celebration.

We’re already getting emails from the event planners talking about the queue procedures on Thursday.  Thursday at 10am, you see, is when JJ Abrams is doing his panel presentation on the newest incarnation of the Star Wars franchise, The Force Awakens.  And that’s where everyone will be.

From amazing cosplay and the full complement of the 501st Legion to panels to out of this world merchandise, Star Wars Celebration is the place to be next weekend.
