Star Wars: Episode VIII

Recommended Posts

That's a lot of Star Wars in a short amount of time.

 

A third interesting tidbit from that article is that Big Hero 6 has become the third highest grossing Disney animated film of all time, behind Frozen and the Lion King.  I'm surprised by that.

My older girls LOVE that movie.  I think it escapes notice because it's not the traditional Disney animated film, but it has a huge following among teens.

Indeed... which also makes it the perfect time to roll out a Star Wars Land somewhere, doesn't it?

 

Just a few minutes ago in the shareholders meeting, Iger mentioned that there were plans for expansion at DL that haven't been announced yet, but that would take place within the existing 2 gates (i.e., no rumored 3rd park), so... ??

Absolutely it makes sense.

 

And no doubt more Star Wars in the parks is going to happen.

I think it's a great movie too.  But, I am surprised that it has grossed more than every other Disney animated film other than Frozen and Lion King.  Where's the Baymax sing-a-long?

One benefit more recent movies like Frozen and Big Hero 6 have had is they were released in 3D.  The box office tally increases a lot faster at $15/ticket than it does at $8.

No doubt.  I also have a feeling that Big Hero 6 did well overseas, and probably attracted a lot more male viewers than the princess movies.

I may geek out with this movie and try and go to the first showing at midnight when it comes out.

I too really liked Big Hero 6, actually more than I thought I would.

 

Best Regards,

I am not on the fence about the midnight showing.  I will be there (unless I somehow score a way to see it earlier).

 

I also liked Big Hero 6.

I just pooped my pants.  

 

That was awesome.  

 

I'd have paid $12 just to see that trailer.  

 

My only issue is this....I'll be boarding the Disney Magic on 12/18 in Miami.  The day the movie is released.  Does anyone know the best theater near the Port of Miami to see this at midnight without being mugged afterward?

LOL.

 

I don't think there's any theater near the Port of Miami where you're not likely to be mugged before or after the movie.

 

More than likely, they will be playing the movie on the ship.  But, you may not have time for it then.

 

Man, you've got a tough life.

Thankfully I didn't have that reaction. But I agree the trailer was awesome. I can't wait for this movie.

Yes, lots of Star Wars geeks roaming the West Coast parks including a large contingent of the 501st.  Very strange to see stormtroopers and wookies roaming the sidewalks of Anaheim :)
