*Disney provided me an all expense paid trip to LA for the Star Wars Event. All opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.*
I AM SO EXCITED!! I have been holding in a secret for some time now and I can finally announce it. This weekend, I will be in LA for the Star Wars Last Jedi Event. As most of you know, I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. Disney is nice enough to release Star Wars around the time of my anniversary (haha) so for the past few years our anniversary night out is seeing Star Wars. My husband and I both are addicts and now we are growing our kids into Star Wars obsessed kiddos too!
So when I found out I was going to the Star Wars Last Jedi Event, I practically screamed. After catching my breath, I immediately went to watch the first trilogy again, as well as The Force Awakens, and last year’s, Rogue One. My husband and I did a week of rewatching the movies so my homework for this event is done. I AM SO EXCITED! DID I MENTION THAT ALREADY?!
For those of you leaving under a rock, how amazing does this movie look?! Just take a look at the trailer for The Last Jedi:
HERE IS WHAT WE WILL BE DOING:
The first day, Saturday 12/2, we will be going to Disneyland! At Disneyland, we will ride Star Wars-The Adventure Continues, visit Star Wars Launch Pad, ride It’s A Small World, Haunted Holiday Mansion, Cars Land Radiator Springs Racers, and Guardians of the Galaxy Mission Breakout to name a small few.
The next day, Sunday 12/3, will be the Star Wars press junket. At the junket we will get to see and speak to Mark Hamill (“Luke Skywalker”), Daisy Ridley (“Rey”), John Boyega (“Finn”), Oscar Isaac (“Poe Dameron”), Adam Driver (“Kylo Ren”), Domhnall Gleeson (“General Hux”), Gwendoline Christie (“Captain Phasma”), Andy Serkis (“Supreme Leader Snoke”), Laura Dern (“Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo”), Kelly Marie Tran (“Rose Tico”) and Director Rian Johnson.
