|Why not the slave girl outfit?|
I have read that people think that Disney will ruin Star Wars but in the past few years Disney purchased both Marvel Comics and The Muppets and I have been pleased and surprised with their handling of both franchises. I am excited to see what J.J. Abrams does with the next film and what Dave Filoni does with the end of the animated series. It Sucks that the animated series is ending.
Another reason for my excitement is that I have seen what Disney has already done with Star Wars and it is awesome.
Star Wars Weekends:
|Jedi Mickey with Porkins - 2010|
One of the first complaints I heard was "Disney will have Mickey running around the park dressed like Luke Skywalker..." Well, that has been happening for a few years now and it is really cool. Since 2008 I have attended Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios, or as I still call it Disney's MGM Studios. It is an experience like no other and the reason I have been an annual pass holder for the last three years.

Over the years I have had the pleasure of meeting some awesome Star Wars celebrities at the event like Ray Park (video below), Peter Mayhew and Jeremy Bulloch.

Now admit it, Mickey Jedi is not going to ruin Star Wars, Greedo shooting first already did that.
So here is this week's video:
Filmed on 05-19-2012 with a Canon T2i running Magic Lantern.
Edited with Adobe Premier CS6.
This is not my best work. I quickly put these together back before I could upload videos longer than 10 min. and only in 720p. Shot with my Canon T2i and edited on Sony Vegas. DSLRs are not the best cameras to shoot long shows without proper stabilization. If I record the show this year I will use my Canon VIXIA HF R200.
