Thursday, May 24, 2012 #632 - Give George Lucas Whatever He Wants!

For the next few weeks, Disney's Hollywood Studios is being over run with Jedi Knights, Sith Lords, Wookies, Droids, Bounty Hunters and a bunch of other characters from "a galaxy far, far away."

"Star Wars Weekends" is the hot ticket at Walt Disney World and it seems to be more popular than ever.

With the Boy Wizard making so much noise down the street at Universal Orlando, we want to know why Disney hasn't gone after the ultimate Potter Killer.

Why hasn't Disney done whatever they need to do to get George Lucas to sign off on a dedicated land or a dedicated park solely devoted to Star Wars?

We'll discuss it on this week's show and look for your opinions too!

EB also has a full-scale review of the two new rides that debuted at Holiday World - Mammoth and Sparkler.  Will the world's longest water slide live up to the hype?

We also have a Live Trip Report from Disneyland AND a winner in our SOUNDWAVE Contest!!!

It's all this week on the Original Theme Park Podcast!

Don't ever have that woman on wailing like that again, or I'm going to charge you for the blown speaker in my car.

Great show aside from that. Personally, I'm hoping someone from Nepal wins the Skeeball Olympics.

That's some weak research there Mr. Collins not finding anything about Star Wars land being discuss about. Come on! Jim Hill Media had an article as back as 2007 about a Lucasland for Disney. Plus back in 2008 when all that Dubai theme park talk was going on their were reports of a Star Wars theme park there too. Also, I surprise you didn't find from Disney and more blogspot about the rumor expansion of Star Wars over at Disney Paris. Those guy's are getting a restaurant theme after the Mos Eisley cantina. Personally, I like to see a Jedi action dark ride. That something we haven't seen yet. Well, if you trying to play coy, just to get more responds. I hope it works. But in case you think I'm blowing smoke here some links. I hope some great ideas come out
