Even before Disney’s recent acquisition of Lucasfilm, Star Wars Weekends were an annual tradition at Disney World. This year is no different. The 2013 poster shows Mickey, Chip and Dale zipping around forest moon of Endor.
In other Disney – Star Wars synergy news, Mickey and his pals donned robes and wielded lightsabers to join the Atlanta Braves for spring training at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Disney World.

Star Wars Weekends and spring training are seasonal, but if a new rumor can be believed, Star Wars could soon find itself with a more permanent home at Disney World. According to ScreamScape, the Parade Float building is being knocked down for a new attraction that may or may not be a Star Wars-themed land. It’s pure speculation at this point, but it doesn’t sound entirely farfetched. [via Disney and More]
It’s not clear we’ll ever see Star Wars: First Assault hit shelves, but at least we can get a glimpse of what it might look like. Flip through the gorgeous screenshots below.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is at an end, but it sounds like Disney’s hoping to get something fairly similar off the ground. At an upfront presentation, Disney Channel boss Gary Marsh revealed that the company is “working closely with LucasFilm, Kathleen Kennedy and director Dave Filoni to explore new Star Wars content for our platforms,” with more details to come later this year. Filoni directed the feature Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and served as a supervising director on the TV version. [TV Line via The Force]
