    Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL amusement park!

    “Don’t be too proud of this financial acquisition you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a saga is insignificant next to the power of the Mouse.”

    Seriously, though . . .

    Could Disney revamp Epcot for this purpose? A Star Wars Universe Experience park would likely be a better draw than the stodgy corporate-sponsored retro-future exhibits they’ve got now.

    Looking forward to Micky and Minnie Womp Rat.

    EPCOT (or Epcot) isn’t the place; the Studios is where SW and Indiana Jones live. (in Florida park). I’d look forward to a pod race ride and forest speeder ride. Maybe even a Ewok Tree House for the Studios.
    I do like the Death Star/spaceship earth idea tho—and I’m sure Disney execs are thinking about it for movie promotion.

    I’m not ok with this. Starwars will never be Disney no matter how much money Disney can pay Lucas Film.

    First rebel to blow it up gets a medal.

       Except Wookies—wookies don’t get medals.

      Given one of the most popular attractions in the MK at Disneyworld is a ToyStory buzz light year ride with scoring for each ride vehicle and passengers; you might not be far off.
      I could see that with a ride with normal ‘space battle’ and fighting the big boss (death star) at the end..maybe even having to do co-operative with other riders coordinating attacks.

    Too bad that Entertainment™ nowadays is now all owned by a single company.

    So is the Magic Kingdom officially the Magic Empire now?

  18. redesigned says:

    unfortunately due to an ill-conceived ventilation shaft the entire thing was destroyed before construction was ever finished.

  19. That_Anonymous_Coward says:

    Isn’t there some sort of antitrust clause somewhere about combining this much ability to screw your childhood memories over in 1 place?

  20. Louis Brown says:

    They should create a new Star Wars dedicated theme park; perhaps in Detroit. (they have land and need the love there. ftr, I am near San Francisco)

    • for_SCIENCE says:

      Yeah, but we’ve got like, four *maybe* five months of theme park weather a year, since Michigan’s calendar is Winter, Winter Lite, WInter 64, Week of Spring™, Hot as Fuck, Week of Autumn™, Winter. The climate seems to be a reason big parks like Disney are in Florida or California.

  21. this comments thread is strong in the force.

    Hey, it’s better than The Wand!

  24. Rickenbacker4001 says:

    Well, this has all been planned by Lucas. He told Seth Rogen that the world is ending in 2012.
    Maybe he needs a few billion for a golden ticket on one of those top secret arks.
