The Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that dropped yesterday had a lot of great stuff that the first one didn’t. Han and Chewie, for example. A melted Darth Vader helmet. Actual interactions between characters. On the other hand, it had a lot less of that adorable scene-stealer known as BB-8. What’s a fan to do if they want it all?

Enter these fan-made edits of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, which combine footage from both trailers into one extended “super trailer.” See the Star Wars 7 super trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Bird Lindelof Tomorrowland disneyland

Where better to learn more about Tomorrowland than in Tomorrowland?

At the Tomorrowland theme park at Disneyland (and soon Epcot in Disney World) Disney has opened a brand new preview of Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. In addition to 10 minutes of footage from the 1964 World’s Fair section of the film, there’s a a mysterious selection of images before you enter the theater, followed by a prop and concept art exhibit that offers some amazing teases at what the future holds for fans come May 22.

Below see a bunch of photos from the Tomorrowland Disneyland sneak peak, which opens April 17 for fans at Disneyland in California, and watch our video blog reaction. Read More »

Star Wars Celebration begins today at the Anaheim Convention Center, but fans started lining up at 5am on Wednesday morning, 29 hours before the opening ceremony for the Star Wars fan convention. The panel is expected to be a presentation featuring a trailer and possibly more for the next installment of the franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Director JJ Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy will be present alongside some unannounced “special guests” at the presentation that begins at 10:00am pacific time and will be streamed live around the world on StarWars.com. But I don’t think Lucasfilm and Abrams expected such a huge turnout on the day before the convention, and the result is an incredible show of generosity.

disneyland hatbox ghost

It was just yesterday afternoon that we learned that Ryan Gosling is in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro‘s long-in-development big screen adaptation of Walt Disney’s classic theme park ride The Haunted Mansion. When del Toro announced the film at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con International, he revealed that the Hatbox Ghost would be a pivotal character in his adaptation. The hatbox ghost is a Disneyland legend, a character that appeared originally in the attraction but mysteriously disappeared shortly after the attraction’s debut. Good news for Disneyland fanatics like me, the Mouse House have confirmed rumors that they will be bringing the Disneyland Hatbox Ghost back to his home starting in May, seemingly as part of the theme park’s 60th anniversary diamond celebration.
