STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI "NYCC" STUNT

Although Star Wars: The Last Jedi didn’t host a panel at New York Comic-Con, the booth that Lucasfilm set up may offer an even more exciting glimpse at what’s to come for the series.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi “Experience” took place in the NYCC booth and was made to replicate a set from the movie. While at first it looked like fans could just mill about looking at props from the film and read informational panels about the new Resistance blasters, the “Experience” soon lived up to its name. Fans were suddenly caught in the middle of a brief skirmish between the Resistance and the First Order in an interactive event that certainly looks like a test run for the upcoming Star Wars theme park land.

The installment was the object of much anticipation at New York Comic-Con earlier this month, with fans flocking to see the collection of props and teasers for Star Wars Episode VIII. But there was more to the booth than met the eye: several fans were picked at random to have their photos projected on the displays around the booth, labeled as Resistance spies.

In the video recap, Stormtroopers entered through a door in the booth, demanding to know where the spies were. Soon the game was afoot, with other Resistance members appearing to spirit away the chosen fans, while BB-8 rolled about. A Kylo Ren appearance and one very cool Force choke effect later, and you’ve got the makings of Star Wars Land.

The best part of this video are the whoops and gasps from the crowd when they realize they’re part of a simulation — the laughs when Kylo Ren dramatically enters probably wasn’t what the actors in the installment predicted, but, oh well. But this was possibly a way for Lucasfilm to test some concepts for the Star Wars land opening in a few years, now called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Opening at both Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida, the Star Wars Lands plan to offer even more interactive experiences: Fans can join the Resistance, work as a bounty hunter or smuggler, or even join the First Order.

The Star Wars Experience at NYCC probably won’t be an exact prediction of the offerings at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, but it showed Lucasfilm and Disney’s commitment to the quality of the experience: the stunts, the force choke, the actual BB-8 robot rolling around on the floor. If they broke out these impressive effects for a booth at New York Comic-Con, who knows what they have in store for an actual theme park?

Star Wars The Last Jedi....
I wonder if it will be like, how they pick out a Rebel Spy on Star tours. At Disneyland and Walt Disney world.
I guess we will have to wait and see in 2 years at Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.

‘Cars’ Characters in Car-stume for Haul-O-Ween During Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort

Erin Gloverby , Editorial Content Director, Disneyland Resort.

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is expanding into Disney California Adventure park, bringing the first-ever Haul-O-Ween in Cars Land. The residents of Radiator Springs are getting into the spirit, decorating each of their establishments and even donning their own car-stumes!
 
Lightning McQueen is already a super hero to race fans, and his car-stume reflects that. Here he is next to the scare-car which makes its Haul-O-Ween debut this year.

Mater may not have a trunk, but that won’t stop him from trunk-or-treating in his vampire costume.

Were you one of the lucky people to of seen the Main Street Electrical Parade before it went away forever? Part 1 of 3

   Part one of three, Ladies and Gentlemen.. Boys and Girls Disneyland proudly presents The night time Magic and fascination, in thousands of sparkling lights... The Main Street Electrical Parade. 







This past August, we were lucky enough to go to Disneyland thanks to a friend. We got to ride the Disneyland Railroad and see the new expansion to the Rivers of America and the Grand Canyon Diorama which was great!
I will write a separate blog about that later.

But my wife wanted me to see the Main Street Electrical Parade, It is a wonder that these floats still work, move and play music as they are 45 years old. Well most of them, there was only a few that were missing, and a new Tinkerbell float that was added.

I remember the first time I saw this parade, I was 7 years old. I am now 52. A lot has changed in those past 45 years. I remember at the end of the parade there was no American Flag with a eagle. It was all the characters with lights on their costumes, with music that matched their theme. The parade was much longer then and had a much longer Baroque Hoedown soundtrack. 
Between my pictures and my wife's pictures you can see what floats are still in the parade. Remember to make the pictures bigger, just click on them.
Hope you enjoy the parade floats one more time. I also have video of the parade on YouTube. just look up etickettotomorrowland.  


Since the pictures are so large , I may have to make this blog a three part blog.
