    I have been to both. Disneyland and California Adventure > Disneyworld.

    All the great rides are in two parks and you can do it in a day if you want walking back and forth rather than a week like Disneyworld.

    Going to Disney World in a couple of weeks. My wife's family is located in Orlando so we usually go at least once or twice a year and always hit Disney.

    I've been to Disneyland over 100 times and Disney World over 100 times and Disneyland Paris twice.

    Disney World is the Best IMO. If you know what you at doing you can avoid the crowds better at Disney World. I've done all 4 parks in a day while hitting all of the major rides in each park. Although that was 15 years ago and they have added a ton more rides since then. Typically we do 2 parks a day at Disney World.

    I'm curious to see how different Star Wars feels at Disney World compared to the one at Disneyland. For some reason the rides at Disneyland tend to be better than the ones recreated at Disney World.

    While I like where you are going with this and would totally work, there is no way in hell Disney will have one of their princesses be on the dark side that would probably have to be hunted down and killed, or showing her kill younglings or similar.

    If George Lucas were still there calling the shots and not Disney, then definitely.

    True but technically their "princess" is still the Rey we know. I think the dark version in that trailer is misleading the audience. I think it's a dark clone of Rey. Also, keep in mind that George himself has been consulting for this last movie.

    that trailer was wholly underwhelming.

    sorry, but they have not done the leg work on Rey, Fin and Poe as a trio who really love each other to get me excited about seeing them together in the cockpit of the Falcon.

    not to mention, the First Order keeps losing at the end of every movie to ever make them an actual formidable opponent.

    hell... I still don't even understand who, why, how or what the First Order even wants. They're literally just... bad guys.

    Loved the trailer. I can't wait for this to drop. I will be in Cali on vacation when it does. Not sure how but I have to figure it out. If not, I might have to wait until Christmas day. BOOO!

    Now that we know the Emperor is still alive things make a bit more sense. It appears once again the Emperor is pulling strings to create conflict which is an echo to the Original & Prequel trilogies. Not sure if the First Order is part of it or simply a puppet much like the Trade federation was. Either way he was pulling the strings all along.

    It's obvious they purposely made this trailer to show off some epic shots without revealing too much. It felt guarded but in a good way.

    We do know that the Death Star in the movie is the second one since it had the Throne Room in it. A couple visuals were phenomenal. In the background of all the ships they put the GHOST in there again from Star Wars Rebels which was also an Egg in Rogue One. I read to expect multiple tie ins to all things Star Wars. Also, The Emperors thrown we see was the original Ralph McQuarrie design that was never used.

    P.S. Happy Birthday Carrie Fisher.

    Harkins is having a marathon in which they'll be showing all 9 Star Wars films.

    "In chronological order."

    Count me out.

    Nine is way too many. I went to a marathon with the OT plus TPH when it came out. Long day. Wouldn't do it again.

    Disney prob isn't overjoyed at the early tracking for the "finale" of the saga.

    https://comicbook.com/starwars/2019...Z0wP822YmbnGCQdZiba_FL0vTWtGg9ISTvslRPpOX67q0

    It'll open big, but this ain't gonna come close to breaking any records and I think it goes back to why I was underwhelmed by the marketing for this movie. bottom line is... I just don't care all that much about the main characters of this trilogy and with Luke and Han dead and everyone knowing that Princess Leia's performance is going to be cobbled together from outtakes and deleted scenes, the idea that Rey, Poe, Fin and Kylo are somehow the people that are going to take this saga home just isn't over the top exciting.

    I mean, it would be like if Cap had died in Civil War and Iron Man died in Avengers: Infiniti War. Sure, people would still be lining up to see how they finally defeated Thanos, but without the powerhouse two-headed monster of Iron Man/Cap, it just wouldn't feel as special.

    But even then, you'd still have Thanos as a big bad, set up over a decade that people would still be excited to see how they take him out. Literally resurrecting the Emperor's dead corpse out of nowhere doesn't carry that same weight. It almost just feels freaking lazy.

    all that said... yes, I'll prob be there opening weekend anyway.

    If the latest rumored ending actually happens, it'll be the fork for this franchise.

    I don't like reading rumors so I don't even know what that rumor is. Most of these leaks are garbage anyway or without context don't play how they are leaked. I am going to try and stay spoiler free.

    I think if Disney does around $750 million it's what they expected to do considering the past performance of the last two films. I am sure they will take more and probably hoping for a "closing movie" bounce. I have to agree though after the first teaser trailer the marketing just isn't as good for this film. I hope that is not an indication of what IS in the movie. I loved TFA. TLJ not so much.

    Hoping for JJ to repair some of RJ's crap. If he can do that, provide some nostalgia, some epic moments and weave everything together nicely it will be an accomplishment. My fear is that it's really going to be hard to pull off after TLJ.

    I am hoping the franchise finishes strong because I simply love Rey, Poe, Finn and BB-8.
