This week, we discuss breaking Star Wars news and thoughts about the rumored runDisney SWW event.
Also, I (Lisa) had this show all ready so I posted it, I might be off on the schedule in the next week or so? Thanks for all the warm thoughts and virtual hugs. Greatly appreciated.
So, in the words of “the Jerk” – “..the new Star Tours is here! the new Star Tours is here!” Well, this show is NOT about that, BUT the new Star Tours does happen to be one of those little things that is making Cat #2 just a tiny bit less of a “hater”.
Jennifer and Lisa have a few more things to say about the upcoming Epic Mickey video game….and this time they’re joined by our resident video game expert, the Watchamacallit, who also reviews Toy Story Mania Wii edition.
Mostly, though, we just all want to wish you a safe and joyous Life Day.
May the Force be with you.
We sure do love our Star Tours! Not that we don’t get distracted by other things of course, including Jeff W’s karaoke hit, Disney Mountain High.
Okay peeps, surely you’ve heard the rumors all over the interwebs about Star Tours 2.0, but here’s some handy links in case you’ve fallen behind:
- Slashfilm: Secret Star Wars Production Shooting in Hollywood
- The Disney Blog: Star Tours 2.0 Confirmed (Again)
- LA Times: A Brief History of the Future of Star Tours 2.0 at Disneyland
We also recommend trolling for new rumors over at the StudiosCentral.com community forums, where there’s a current thread discussing the Slashfilm article above.
Wasn’t it just last week we were bidding a sad farewell to DisFriends? But alas, now we say goodbye to Adventurers Club. Lisa and I are especially sad that we never went! But our friend Geoff Carter of Your Souvenir Guide was kind enough to share with us about his happy times there.
We also bring in a whole other kind of hoopla – Hyperspace Hoopla! Lisa captured some live park audio last June at Star Wars Weekends, so we can do a little hyperspace hustle.
Now, one particular little note: Despite Jennifer’s best attempts, she did not find any evidence of the Kungaloosh Salute on YouTube! So hey, is there anybody out there willing to record a little salute from the privacy of their own home, and send us a link to the video?
And hey, as it turns out DisFriends won’t be shutting down after all: Check out this message on the site from Trent! Woo hoo! So hey, can we work a little magic here and get Adventurers Club back too?
Also following up on last week’s show….our buddy Hayden dropped me a note with a little technical tip, and I created a basic Those Darn Cats page on FaceBook. I haven’t figured out how to link to it directly…but if you’re on FaceBook, just search for Those Darn Cats and you’ll find us!
So, you may know that we have all just returned from Star Wars Weekends 2008 – the #1 Cat and the Watchamacallit may NOT even be home yet as this podcast comes out… A good time was had by all (HOOOPLA!) – and we look forward to sharing many sounds and memories with all of you in the future – however, for this weeks episode, we share our own special version of “the trip report” – we found the elusive Terrace Noodle Station open for business!
We came, we saw, we ate – we noted a disturbing lack of theming. Oh, and of course, we podcasted.
Disregard for theming during removal
Dismay at theming removal
