EW – Disney brought out the big guns to tease plans for the upcoming Star Wars theme park expansion: Harrison Ford and BB-8.


The Han Solo actor and roly-poly droid were part of ABC’s Disneyland 60 tribute to Walt Disney’s first park on Sunday night, and their appearance heralded the latest galactic addition to both the Disneyland park in Anaheim, California, and Walt Disney World in Orlando — the Star Wars Experience.


“Star Wars is, for lack of a better word … awesome,” the actor said in his introduction. “I’m so blessed that I had the opportunity to be a part of it. To walk in these iconic locations. And soon, you’ll be able to do that as well. Not in a galaxy far, far away, but in a place close to home.”


*Cue John Williams fanfare.*


No, really. After the telecast showed off new concept art of the attractions — including a virtual reality ride that allows guests to control the Millennium Falcon in an aerial battle with the First Order — an orchestra launched into a performance of the scores from the Star Wars saga.


The footage, which hasn’t been officially released online, included some shots from the cockpit of the Falcon as it flies into battle, and also said the Star Wars Experience would include encounters with aliens and droids, as well as food vendors selling otherworldly delicacies. Blue milk, anyone?



UPROXX – In the wee hours of the morning today, MC Hammer posted the above tweet. The tweet contains a picture of him and Harrison Ford together at 3:24 a.m. (The timestamp might say differently, but remember: time zones.) They both appear happy, and they are both wearing sunglasses indoors, and MC Hammer used the 100 emoji to describe what appears to have been a fun evening the two shared.


We have a few questions about this tweet.


1) What were MC Hammer and Harrison Ford doing at 3:30 a.m.?


This is the obvious question raised by MC Hammer’s tweet. And beyond what they were doing at 3:30 a.m., what were they doing up until 3:30 a.m. Like, had they been running amok all over town all night, doing tequila shots and singing karaoke and hanging out the sunroof of a stretch limousine. Because I’m not going to lie here, that’s what I’m picturing. MC Hammer and Harrison Ford painting the town red like two guys at the end of the first act of an ’80s movie, right before the magic spell kicks on or wears off or whatever. Think montage. A “night on the town” party montage. Like that.


2) Are MC Hammer and Harrison Ford friends?


If the first question was the most obvious, this is the most important. Did MC Hammer and Harrison Ford just run into each other this one night, or is this a regular thing? Do they hang out a lot? Does MC Hammer go to Harrison Ford’s house to watch football on Sundays? Do you think Calista Flockhart — Harrison Ford’s long-time girlfriend (his wife actually)— is always saying, “Ugh, Harrison. I wish you would stop hanging out with MC Hammer so much and pay attention to me?”

COMICBOOK – The force will awaken on Blu-ray this April!


Today, Amazon notified customers that pre-ordered J.J. Abrams’ mega-blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-ray that they will received their copy on by April 5th, 2016. They then updated their website with the official date as well.


There’s still no information on the special features that will be included with the Blu-ray release. The current retail price is $19.99.


Set thirty years after the events of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens picks up the story of a galaxy turned upside-down with the deposition of the evil Empire and the rise of the Rebel Alliance to take its place. With the cruel First Order rising to fill the void left by the Empire’s destruction and the Resistance dedicated to eradicating their influence, heroes Finn and Rey will need to stop the villainous Kylo Ren and the First Order from assuming total control of the galaxy, with the help of old heroes Han Solo and Leia Organa.


Star Wars: The Force Awakens is playing at your local cinema.



COMING SOON – The Official Secrets cast includes Paul Bettany, Martin Freeman, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Harrison Ford and Natalie Dormer


Paul Bettany (The Avengers), Natalie Dormer (The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock), Sir Anthony Hopkins (Thor, The Silence of the Lambs) and Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Indiana Jones) have joined the Official Secrets cast. The espionage thriller will be produced by Elizabeth Fowler (Devil’s Knot).


Justin Chadwick (Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom, The Other Boleyn Girl) will direct the true story based on the best-selling book “The Spy Who Tried To Stop A War: Katherine Gun and The Secret Plot to Sanction the Iraq Invasion.” The screenplay has been adapted by Sara and Gregory Bernstein.


In the run up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Katharine Gun (Dormer), a young British intelligence officer, reveals a secret illegal NSA spy operation against the UN Security Council designed to ensure passage of a resolution for war to Martin Bright (Bettany), a reporter at the British newspaper, The London Observer. Katharine’s arrest following the leak makes headlines around the world. In an attempt to gain the evidence to free Katharine, Martin unearths the shocking plot which puts both Katharine and Martin’s lives in great jeopardy. Freeman will be playing Peter Edwards, the foreign affairs editor at The Observer, while Hopkins is playing a retired UK general and Ford a CIA agent.


The Solution Entertainment Group’s Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel are executive producing the feature film and are handling the financing and international sales at the upcoming European Film Market. UTA Independent Film Group packaged the project and represents domestic rights.


The film is slated to begin principal photography in May 2016 in the UK.

Ford will preview the two park expansions during the two-hour Disney special, airing Sunday, February 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC.


Previously announced guests for “Disneyland 60,” which will be hosted by “Dancing with the Stars” champ Derek Hough, include Elton John, Josh Gad and Hough’s “DWTS” co-star Witney Carson. Hough and Carson will perform a dance tribute utilizing music from Disney’s most popular properties, while John will debut a new song, “Wonderful Crazy Night,” in addition to performing his Oscar-nominated “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King.”


Gad — who voiced Olaf in Disney’s animated hit “Frozen,” and will next be seen in the company’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” remake as LeFou — will take viewers on a tour of Walt Disney’s private apartment and the Disneyland Dream Suite on the special. The Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by music and artistic director Gustavo Dudamel, will join the celebration performing “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” from Walt Disney’s classic animated film “Fantasia.”
