    Disney’s Hollywood Studios will mark a thrilling park milestone on May 1, 2019 – 30 years of bringing magical movies to life for Walt Disney World Resort guests! We can now share that on its 30th anniversary, the entire park will bring to life everyone's favorite films about a Galaxy Far, Far Away.

    After listening to our Guests and opening Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge early because of high interest; Walt Disney Imagineering and LucasFilm have been working at a light speed pace to produce exciting ways to add classic Star Wars characters into all of the park’s already amazing attractions.

    I am pleased to share today the first of these exciting enhancements with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

    Have you ever wondered who would win an epic showdown between Indiana Jones and Darth Vader? On May 1st wonder no more! The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular will feature an all new conclusion where Indiana Jones discovers an ancient Sith temple and goes lightsaber to lightsaber with Darth Vader! Will Indiana prevail or will he be tempted to join the Dark Side?

    Also look for all new Star Wars themed menus at the park's dining locations and two all new Star Wars retail experiences to open in the former spaces of Keystone Clothiers and Legends of Hollywood. We can’t wait to share more, so keep checking www.waltdisneyworld.disney.go.com for updates!

    Yup. I'd bet a week's pay that it came up at some point during the planning discussions. Scary huh? Although Indy certainly needs a refresh...

    You got me.
    We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together

    Not

    1) Did anyone catch the name of the author?
    2) The picture is not photo shopped, it actually was a real event in 2010 at Disney's Hollywood Studios during Star Wars Celebration V.

    The real caption:

    Quote Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

The face-to-face meeting was part of the “The Last Tour to Endor” event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for fans attending this week’s Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando, Florida.

    Walt Disney Creative Entertainment created the special show, which featured Star Wars characters like Darth Vader making one-night-only appearances in the park’s “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” live show.
    Ran across the picture and couldn't pass up using it for an April Fool's news story.

    The telling sign it wasn't real... NO CUPCAKE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!! For sure Disney would have released a cupcake in the shape of Vader's helmet or Yoda's head...
    Son of Jor-El.. Kneel before Zod...

    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
