Since the Walt Disney Company bought Lucasfilm for $4 Billion we were all wondering where they would take it.
In the last 6 months that has been largely answered, by way of the release of the record breaking 7th episode of the film franchise as well as the new huge lands at both the California and Florida theme parks and the juggernaut of merchandising.
Now I am a huge fan of the films, so put in this position, it excites me massively, but if I was to look at it as a fan of say Marvel, who seem to have got the raw end of the deal when it comes to the franchises that Disney have bought in, a fan of another of the Lucasfilm property, Indiana Jones, that so far has largely been ignored, or just a fan of Disney in general, I can see why it would seem too much.
Walk into any Disney Store in the UK and a huge proportion of the store is taken up by Force Awakens merchandise. Specifically Disneyland is losing some historic attractions to make way for the new land.
How do you feel regarding the emphasis that has been placed on a galaxy far far away?

Many Thanks to The Disney Dream Girls for inviting us onto their magical Christmas Event, Minmas. It's a brilliant annual event bringing together podcasters, musicians & bloggers from all around the world & this year we were lucky enough to be featured on Christmas Eve. The boys weren't available so I sat down with my beautiful girls Eve (11) & Grace (6) to record a Christmas bed time story.
Heres to a brilliant 2016

|On Board Thomas Cook|
Back in October 2015 I was lucky enough to go to Halloween Horror Nights 25 with my bestest buddy Stuart. We'd been planning it for over a year & had counted down the months, days & hours to departure. We flew Thomas Cook & stayed in the Awesome Cabana Bay. It really is a magnificent hotel. I could write about all our experiences during the long weekend but I'm not, instead I'm gonna share the Podcast episode we recorded on location. So sit ack relax & enjoy Halloween Horror Nights 25 one last time.
|Me, Stuart & The Wolf Man|
