Darth Vader at Disneyland? NOOOOO!
Quicker than you can say "hyperspace", Disney arks has released a video celebrating the marriage of the Magic Kingdom and Star Wars.
"Darth Vader, now that you're part of the Disney family, what are you going to do next?" the video begins. (Read More: Disney to Buy Lucasfilm in Deal Worth Over $4 Billion.)
The black-clad Sith Lord and his storm troopers are then seen tromping around Disneyland, enjoying rides like Dumbo and Space Mountain.
Vader draws his light saber in fear at The Haunted Mansion (I find his lack of faith disturbing). Perhaps most disturbing, the scariest-villain-in-sci-fi-history checks out the Disney princesses … as his aides wear Mickey Mouse ears.
As Luke would say, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"
Ok, the video is pretty funny, even though diehard Star Wars fans like me might have their heads explode like a Death Star. This commercial is not new, as it turns out. Disney first created it last year as part of a revamped Star Tours ride.
I guess it could have been worse. Darth Vader does not ride through Small World. That really would be going to the dark side.
