Disney x Star Wars = Star Wars Land?


On Christmas morning, Disney shared a behind-the-scenes update on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the massive 14-acre new Star Wars-themed land opening in Disney’s Hollywood Studios next year. But if you were too busy to sit through the entire show for your sneak peek, Disney has now shared the video online.

The video features brief commentary from some key figures responsible for bringing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life. “It will be jaw-dropping and incredibly emotional to walk into the land for the first time,” promises Carrie Beck, VP of Lucasfilm Story Group. “To actually be standing there amongst the buildings, amongst the ships, and have this feeling that it is all real. That it has been brought to life. And it is right there in front of you – it’s overwhelming.”

The behind-the-scenes video also features more details and updated footage from Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the two attractions that will be featured in Galaxy’s Edge. While we’ve known for a while now that Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will put guests in the cockpit of the fastest ship in the galaxy, the Rise of the Resistance ride has been a little more mysterious. The video finally sheds light on what park guests can expect from “the most epic attraction” Disney has ever built.

The First Look At ‘Rouge One: A Star Wars Story’ (Official Trailer 1).


Only two days after the digital release of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, 0ur first look at the a different corner of the Star Wars galaxy has surfaced.  The intriguing and unique ‘Star Wars Story’ of Rouge One features a look at a group of Rebel bandits, and their attempts to steal the plans for an Empire super weapon (one that you may recognize).  Staring Felicity Jones, and Forrest Whitaker, the brief but satisfying trailer paves the way for what may be an incredible story.  Check the method below.

The Han Solo and Millennium Falcon Coffee Tables.


I have to say that the nerd in me for sure came out when I saw these for the first time.  The Han Solo in carbonite table would be a perfect fit into my spot for a one of a kind nerded-out centerpiece.  The millennium Falcon coffee table comes a close second, but is still pretty dope.  Designed by UK based R9 Studios, the cold cast aluminum, machined hardware and toughened glass geeky Star Wars Tables go for about $2,050 (£1,250)

A Snoop Dogg, Star Wars, Daft Punk, And David Beckham Video?


Yes, not only is this true, it’s actually pretty old.  I got into a heated debate on the phone with my working colleague Neil about Snoop Dogg, and I mentioned his participation in the Adidas/Star Wars collab.  Neil instantly called me a liar and told me I was making things up, so I decided to write this post just in case anyone else was unaware of the summer 2010 Adidas ad featuring Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, Daft Punk, and a few other big entertainers.

Further than that, there was a second ad put out by Adidas featuring the same stars shortly after.  I know there are probably sneaker heads (like Gabby) cussing under their breath about how old this is, but I’m just trying to prove a point.
