So is a Disney Star Wars theme park inevitable now, or what?

Disney Star Wars

Okay, you got me. This was all just an elaborate excuse to (poorly) Photoshop Mickey hats on Luke and Yoda.

I’m sure you’ve heard The Big Nerd News by now, so I won’t bother wasting your time with my own musings about Disney’s acquisition of Star Wars and what it will mean for the future of the franchise, how existing properties will be handled, and other nerdy things Star Wars nerds have been nerding on about for the past 3 days. As you might imagine, The League has A LOT OF FEELINGS about it. You can read some of their reactions here, here, here, here, and I also strongly recommend listening to this podcast for an appropriate gut-check of how you should feel about it. Bottom line is that Disney can’t possibly fuck up Star Wars any more than George Lucas already has. So I say bring it on, and I’m ready to crown Leia as the next Disney Princess.

My question is this: does this mean we will get a Star Wars-themed Disney attraction in the vein of Universal’s The Wizarding World of Harry Potter or even its own park? Will there be R2D2 spinning teacups? I can’t be the only one who thinks Spaceship Earth is only a circular dent away from being the Death Star. The very idea of a Star Wars theme park prints money.

The first tentative steps into madness.

Day 1 of the Countdown to Halloween is already behind us! Here’s a bunch of Halloween stuff that caught my eye around The League yesterday, in no particular order:

5 Things I Care About More than iPhone 5 Today

Apple is holding a press conference to unveil the new iPhone today, which means it’s a slow news day for everyone else who doesn’t give a shit.

Here are five things that are not iPhone 5 that I’m choosing to give my full, undivided attention to:

#1 – The Release of ‘Double Dragon Neon’

Double Dragon Neon

Just released yesterday, this newest Double Dragon game is the 1980′s-themed old school beat’em up I’ve been anticipating all summer.  To pump myself up, I’ve been listening to the totally bitchin’ soundtrack all day. As soon as I get home from work tonight I’ll be kicking ass and high-fiving anyone/anything that can be high-fived.

#2 – The Brand New ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Trailer

#3 – The 25 Greatest Moments in TMNT History

25 Greatest Moments in TMNT History

Mark from TMNT Entity recently posted a really fantastic two-part countdown of the “25 Greatest Moments in TMNT History” over at Adventures in Poor Taste, complete with lots of images, quotes, anecdotes, and Mark’s own personal fan reactions. It’s quite lengthy but well worth the read. If you’re a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan or someone who’s not as familiar with all the various TMNT universes and want to learn more, it’s a must-read. Here’s Part 1 and Part 2.

#4 – This couch.

I want to say this is glorious, but glorious isn’t a strong enough word.

#5 – The World Trade Center in Movies

The World Trade Center in the opening shot of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

This wonderful site is a database of every movie the iconic twin towers of the World Trade Center appears in, organized by decade. For every movie listed, the site tells you where in the movie the WTC appears, and clicking the links will show you a screenshot. For example, the image above (if you haven’t recognized it already) is from the opening shot of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990.

How about you? Are you foaming at the mouth for every new tidbit of Apple-related news today…or not?
