Just last week, we got a first look at the forthcoming Disney Channel TV movie and animated series kick-off The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar. An extended sneak peek of the TV movie portion of this follow-up debuted at D23 this weekend, and it’s now available for you to check out.
In The Lion Guard clip, we see Simba and Nala’s second-born cub Kion (voiced by Max Charles of Peabody & Sherman) having some fun with his friends in the Pride Lands, but then he’s forced to show why he’s been tasked with being the protector of his home turf when his best friend Bunga, a feisty honey badger, gets into some trouble with some hyenas.

Over the weekend at D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim, Bob Iger made the huge announcement that Star Wars Land would be coming to Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando Florida. The announcement was filled with a bunch of juicy details, but raised just as many questions.

Over the weekend, one of the reveals from Disney’s D23 Expo 2015 was the first photo of the primary cast from Star Wars: Rogue One, giving us a good first look at the s about a band of rebels tasked with stealing the plans to the first Death Star.
Now that a super high-resolution version of the photo has hit the web, fans are noticing some cool details in the photo, mostly with the costumes and props of the pictured cast, which includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen.
In fact, one particular cast member’s appearance has sparked a very interesting theory, albeit one without much substantial evidence. Some believe that we’ll see Diego Luna as Biggs Darklighter in the movie. Read More »

Yesterday there were plenty of huge Star Wars updates from Disney’s D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim. Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow was confirmed to direct Star Wars: Episode IX; the first look at Star Wars: Rogue One was revealed along with the official primary cast; and a whole Star Wars section was confirmed to be on the way for Disney theme parks.
But one little tidbit that went somewhat under the radar in all that craziness was for Disney’s first big screen venture into a galaxy far, far away. The big reveal for Star Wars: The Force Awakens yesterday was a D23 exclusive poster illustrated by renowned artist Drew Struzan, but director J.J. Abrams also announced something else: The Force Awakens runtime. Read More »

Today at the D23 Expo 2015 Disney announced not one, but two Star Wars Land expansions for Disney parks, one at Disneyland park in Anaheim, CA, and another at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL. Both versions will be the largest-ever park expansions, at 14 acres each. (You can find good speculative info here about where these expansions are likely to go.)
But the size is actually less important than the attractions. Star Wars Land will be a wholly in-character experience, with alien servers and workers at all parts of the attraction, including a Cantina. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy two signature attractions, including one that puts fans inside the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.
Bob Iger said (bold emphasis ours), “these new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.” Read More »

Even though there may not be any new footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuting at D23 this weekend, fans were still given a pretty fantastic treat that is simultaneously something we weren’t sure that we would get to see, but also something unsurprising.
The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens poster has been revealed with illustrations from famed poster artist Drew Struzan, the man behind the final theatrical posters for the special edition of the Star Wars trilogy as well as the prequel trilogy, and it’s just as gorgeous as we all hoped. Plus, it also gives us a tease of a certain elegant weapon being used by someone we haven’t seen wield one yet. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. Read More »
