“Watch the intro video and try not to cry over the third #GalaxysEdge ride that got cut. (They just had to drop that shot in there!)” - https://twitter.com/nickytea/status/1157178346687479810?s=19

"Look at that beautiful beastie crawl.

Can you imagine riding on the back of a Bantha through #GalaxysEdge? The cancelled third ride had echoes of the People Mover and Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland."

Although this ride got cut I hope this happens in the future!

Little Girl Dressed As Rey From STAR WARS Gives Us Hope’:-

https://nerdist.com/article/little-rey-disney-world-star-wars
 

'Fandom can be exhausting. It’s an unfortunate byproduct of loving something so much–the passion that comes with that love can be both positive and toxic. The Star Wars fandom knows this quandary well; it’s full of some of the most loving, caring fans in the world, but the internet can be vile. That love can be on the attack on a near-constant basis. It can make you question this thing you thought you loved, and make you wonder if it’s even worth it.

But then something like this video comes along and you remember that Star Wars is a space fantasy about self-discovery, finding your place in the galaxy, and conquering your greatest fears. It’s a sandbox for escapism and imagination. It’s a place where you too can be Luke Skywalker. Or Han Solo. Or, if you’re part of this new generation, Rey from Nowhere.’

'The video [above] has gone viral from a number of accounts and shows a little girl at the Star Wars Launch Bay in Orlando’s Walt Disney World. She’s dressed as Rey and greets each passing character with the Force. She encounters a number of familiar bad guys: Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Captain Phasma–all of whom merely give her a look and move on. But at the end of the line is Chewbacca and Rey, who greet her with affection; they even bend down to give her a hug.

Videos like this remind us what Star Wars still means to children, and how the galaxy’s heroes continue to inspire. It’s a good thing for any Star Wars fans–even the disillusioned ones–to see and take in. The fandom is as strong and as important as ever.’

I love this! My wife’s an author so we often do Comicon-type events with lots of cosplay abounding. I have to admit that I’ve teared up more than once at the sight of little Reys and Kylos running around. It does remind me of the innocence of Star Wars, what it has always meant to me, and what it will no doubt mean in the future. Cool post!

Very much a rumour rather than actual news - and to be taken with a large pinches of salt…

 

I’ve no idea if the guy is legitimate - or has a decent track record on these things. It could be for the clicks - actually happening - or just someone extrapolating on this article here:-

Jon Favreau on whether Thrawn, Mara Jade could be in The Mandalorian - EW website article.

Played by Bryce Dallas Howard? 😃

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

I hope not. I really don’t like her in anything I’ve seen her in.

I’d pick Rose Leslie, personally.

Bryce Dallas Howard directed an episode of The Mandalorian. She was already on the set!

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

^ Fascinating read my man, good to see articles with actual quotes from people involved as well, instead of interpreation or made up stuff to suit an agenda or get the clicks in 😃

^ Well, maybe the new person in charge of Disney is a big fan of the OOT? Lets hope so anyway 😃

And I thought Lucas slapping Han Shot First on a t-shirt was bad!

I’d post that classic image of Mickey flipping the bird that was everywhere in 1979, (ask your parents, kids) but a mod should have some decorum I guess. 😉
