disney theme parks star wars presence new rides tours

Sure, Disneyland's Star Tours is a decent enough ride.

But when you think Star Wars theme park rides, wouldn't you rather pilot an X-wing through the trenches of the Death Star or ride a speeder bike through the forests of Endor?

Well, you may soon get your chance to do that and more!

Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that along with the release of Episode VII, we may also be getting to experience Star Wars on a whole new level! Iger said:

harrison ford walking no cast leg brace standing star wars health update

Harrison Ford is walking tall!

The Star Wars star was spotted at Santa Monica Airport on Tuesday without his hands-free crutch! He was standing completely Indy-pendently!

Not only that! He's also already flying his plane again! He should be back in the Millennium Falcon in no time!

We are so happy for Harrison. He was injured just six weeks ago, so this is a really big step! So to speak!

Does this mean he will resume filming Episode VII soon? That Han Solo's part will be just as big as ever?

We certainly hope so! We've been thinking about that part for a long time… LOLz!

Darth Vader For President? Star Wars Villain Polling Higher Than Every 2016 Hopeful! (Sorry, Hillary!)

| Filed under: Silly!PolitikHillary ClintonStar Wars

darth vader 2016 presidential candidates leads popularity poll numbers

Look, we all know how badly most US citizens view our politicians. And it's not getting any better.

Abysmal poll numbers come out all the time, but with everyone's so low, how does one even compare, say, potential 2016 presidential candidates?

Well, thanks to FiveThirtyEight.com and The Washington Post's WonkBlog, we can finally put those numbers up against something people understand- Star Wars!

They combined the popularity polls for Hillary Clinton, Chris Christie, and more names that have been thrown around as possibly running on 2016.

And it turns out Darth Vader has them all beat! But the Sith Lord wasn't alone! Even his decrepit jerky jerk of a boss Emperor Palpatine beat almost everyone!

See the entire popularity rankings that'll make you wonder if the American people would rather have a Galactic Empire …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

You Won't Believe What Luke Skywalker Looks Like In Star Wars Episode VII!

| Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyStar Wars

mark hamill revealed his star wars episode vii look at the guardians of the galaxy premiere

The security around Star Wars Episode VII has been pretty darn tight! We're talking tractor beams and Imperial Star Destroyers!

Sure, the occasional plot rumor will get out, but for the most part the details have been kept pretty secret.

Even the cast has been hiding out! Well, until today!

Comic book aficionado Mark Hamill just couldn't resist cashing in on the Disney family perk of attending the UK premiere of Guardians Of The Galaxy!

And in doing so, he inadvertently gave the world a sneak peek at the look of the new Luke Skywalker! Well, by new we mean… whatever, when 30 years older you reach, look so good you will not, eh?

Mark is clearly rocking the Obi Wan bearded Jedi master look here. Which gives us a big clue as to his character's development:

He's become a hipster! LOLz!

star wars episode vii movie plot details rumor lightsaber

Yes, looking for info on Star Wars now is kind of like sneaking a peek in the closet at Christmas presents in October, but come on!

Can you blame us?

Well, it's possible that someone found the right box in the back of the closet, because we heard an unconfirmed rumor about the plot of the next chapter, and it's pretty darn cool- if it's true.

And if U want to skip the spoiler-y speculation, we also have another video (below) from J.J. Abrams giving an update on the charity fundraiser that will give one person the chance to see the movie WAY early- and another a chance to BE IN IT!

Here we go! Again, we don't know if this is true, but SPOILER ALERT anyway! Episode VII opens with
