Disney meets Star Wars in new ad campaign

05.11.2010

Nothing quite sums up my childhood like Disney and Star Wars, and if I had kids, I’d probably totally take them down to Star Wars weekends at Disney World, as I remember it being a blast when I was younger, awful Han Solo impersonators and all.

Below we have an ad campaign for the weekends at Disney, and with it some pretty decent Star Wars photoshops. I think my favorite has to be the Darth Maul face painting one, though Chewie’s convertible ride is great as well.

Check them out below, and start planning a trip down there. No, I’m not being paid by Disney, it’s just hella fun. Yes, hella.

Extra Tidbit: Man I forgot General Grievous existed. What a horrible character.

I always imagined the AT-ATs were about 7 times bigger than that. The way it looks here is smaller than an 18-wheeler carrying a trailer.

Updating the Star Tours ride

I noticed the last time I visited Disneyland a few weeks ago that Disney Imagineers are currently updating the Star Tours ride. Can't wait!

It sounds a lot better than the ride they have now. It will be a new film shot in 3D and you'll be chased by Boba Fett or something like that.

polarboy, I'm confused.

polarboy what do you mean "Star Wars' Future, Thanks To Avatar"? Star Wars doesn't need help from ANY other movie/franchise to popular or successful. You do leave your house and/or surf the internet(I'm assuming so, since you're here) right? Star Wars is DEEPLY rooted in pop culture, much more than Avatar is, or ever will be. Sorry, but your comment was ignorant as hell.

surprised

surprised at all the love for Grevious. He SHOULD'VE been awesome, but he was very lame. His whole wheezing act and just the way he was handled was all wrong. Those movies should've had the Emperor and Darth Maul. That's all you need! Forget Dooku and Grevious. Lucas struck gold with Maul then pissed him away in the first movie. Retarded.

Maul was not that great. All he was good for was doing stunts while fighting with a lightsaber.

I agree, they should've kept maul alive and then MAYBE the second one could've been actually bearable (as long as the story changed lol)

Haha, I love the old lady in front of Darth Vader. Grievous wasn't that bad.....except for the fact that he had tuberculosis or some shit.

Grievous was just bad ass. Just look at the guy/droid. He should have been the Darth Vader of the prequels. Now Darth Maul and Count Dooku were boring as shit to me. Maul didn't even talk and Dooku was just not interesting at all. I want to know why you DIDN'T like Grievous though.

I couldn't disagree more with the extra tidbit. Grievous was the best villain in the prequels and way better than Darth Maul. He was definitely one of the reasons I liked Episode III.
These posters are alright but the Darth Maul and Chewy ones are awesome. Really want to go to Disney now.

I prefer some of these instead. The event itself is a blast though. Some of my greatest laugh out loud disney shots have come from that event.

I agree, it's all propaganda! I hate giving my money to the mouse, unfortuntly my wife and kids love going. The long lines, heat, and exprensive things, thats how its possible to hate Disney! Its like Valentines Day, just another excuse to give your money to someone else....

Freddyrich, its a little upsetting that your entire family has a good time on these trips to Disney while you seem to be having a miserable experience. When you complain about giving your money to someone else are you refering to your family?

Star Wars post Avatar...

I'm no Avatar diehard but these posters could also work if titled "Star Wars' Future, Thanks To Avatar." And then we see that picture of Darth Maul's priceless expression, almost heaving a depressed *sigh*. Made me laugh. Again, Star Wars fans, I'm no Na'Vi nerd so don't go all crazy on me...
