Some Disneyland Rides Are Temporarily Closing To Make Space For Star Wars World… But A Few Attractions Are Never Coming Back!

Even your annual pass can't help you here!

Disneyland may be the happiest place on Earth, but some guests might be bummed to learn that a few House of Mouse classics are shutting down for a hot second.

In order to make room for the upcoming Star Wars world, Disney's theme park in Anaheim is temporarily closing a number of attractions in January 2016 — including Fantasmic!, Mark Twain Riverboat and Tom Sawyer Island, Sailing Ship Columbia, Davy Crockett Explorer Canoes, and all of the Disneyland Railroad!

Basically, anything that was located along the Rivers of America is kaput.

But now for the even worse news… once Big Thunder Ranch, and all that it contains, shuts down on January 10, it'll be gone forever!

Luckily, the ranch pretty much only held a petting zoo and stage reserved for private events, so hopefully the two intergalactic rides as well as the real-life Mos Eisley Cantina more than make up for them.

The Star Wars parks are still years away from completion, so if one of your faves is getting the temporary boot, you better get to Disneyland soon!

Taylor Swift Rules The 'Powers That Be' For Vanity Fair! Find Out Which Other Celebs Made The Media Hotlist HERE!

no title

Taylor Swift knows a thing or two about topping the charts.

The Wildest Dreams singer took the no. 1 spot on Vanity Fair's "Powers That Be" list, due to her strong media presence and victory over Apple Music! The magazine wrote:

"Swift isn't merely the world's favorite pop star, putting up sales numbers that are nearly unfathomable in the post-Napster age—she is also using her platform to make giant companies conform to her will."

Ranking at the number 2 spot is Disney's Chief Bob Iger, who is making Mickey Mouse VERY happy after aquiring Pixar, Marvel, and LucasFilms — and is who we can thank for the upcoming Star Wars movies!

We're giddy like schoolgirls!

Since we've only gotten the one full trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it gets us all that more excited whenever we get the tiniest new clip!

And Star Wars just dropped the best one yet on their Instagram account! They even took advantage of the social media company's new widescreen capability!

The teaser is less than 15 seconds but gives us one of the coolest moments yet! Right after that famous shot of Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) pulling out his famous crossguard lightsaber, John Boyega's character Finn responds with his own blue lightsaber!

We had only seen Finn holding a lightsaber on the poster Drew Struzan created that dropped at D23, so this is the first ACTUAL footage!

Ch-ch-check out the incredible new clip (below) and let us know how excited you are!

The most magical picture on Earth!

Lupita Nyong'o is consistently one of the happiest celebs in Hollywood, but she looked like she was extra giddy over the weekend!

That's because the 32-year-old Oscar winner got to visit Disneyland for the first time ever on Saturday and she just embodied pure joy.

[ Video: This Is The Star Wars/True Detective Mashup We Deserve! ]

Lupita was in town for the D23 Expo and got to take some time to get her first pair of Mickey ears.

The craziest part of all this is that she's actually currently in production for two Disney movies, Star Wars and The Jungle Book, so we think it's only fair she gets to take part in the magic.

Have fun, Lupita!

George Lucas Says Jar Jar Binks Was Inspired By THIS Disney Character!

| Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyStar Wars

Jar Jar Binks is often regarded as one of the most despised characters in all of film.

But George Lucas still possesses an unconditional love for the Star Wars character that only a father could give.

At this weekend's D23 Expo, Lucas revealed that the character was actually inspired by a Disney character — Goofy! He explained:

"I can't even begin to tell you how much of an influence Disney has had on me. I will say one secret that nobody knows; not many people realize that Goofy was the inspiration for Jar Jar Binks…I know that you will look at him differently now. It's pretty obvious, actually, but, um, I love Goofy and I love Jar Jar."

We're happy someone loves Jar Jar, because the bumbling Gungan totally made our list of the most unintentionally annoying movie characters of all time! Find out who else made the list (below)!
