Da Mouse Live! Star Wars Weekends

Change your life forever, I think this year Star Wars Weekends will.

Star Wars Weekends take over Disney’s Hollywood Studios every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 20-June 12 and Da Mouse will be there opening weekend to bring you all of the excitement.

We will have photos, videos and live updates on twitter at @DaMouseNews so that you can feel the force along with us. Star Tours 2 makes its grand opening debut bringing 3-D for the first time to the Star Wars attraction along with multiple random endings that will ensure adventure and surprise every time you ride.

Be sure to check back often because there is so much more to talk about in the lead-up to this year’s event…

Bob Iger and George Lucas on stage as Jedis….what an epic show.

10:38AM They shot a firework Plasma cannon towards Star Tours where Darth Vader had placed a shield over the attraction to keep it closed and then a large explosion with fireworks seen from Star tours. It looked amazing in person!
