Death Star 2016

Yesterday on Attack of the Show’s segment known as The Feed, hosted by Sara Underwood, I learned of a new petition that has been sent to the White House.

Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.

Well, for a Star Wars like me there is a set of mixed emotions surrounding this.

First off, this is sweet! It is an awesome idea.

Second, do we really need something that could destroy the planet? I mean, this would start another World War for the battle station.

Third, wouldn’t this take like 1000x out national debt to build? Sounds like a great fiscal idea right!

Yeah, like you, I know this won’t happen, but it’s a nice dream.

I have a better idea though.

Disney bought the rights to Star Wars and are going to make more films. This opens up the oppurtunity that Disney will add Star Wars lands to Disney Land and Disney World.

So maybe they could build a Death Star. Not a functioning one, but a reasonable size replica that people could tour, Stormtroopers and Imperials could patrol and make it look as authentic as possible. Create interactive kiosks that provide info on parts of the Death Star, people/personnel on the Station. They could even create a shooting simulator for people to sit in and play in.

Have Tie Fighters people can also see. Have a shooting simulator in the Tie Fighters.

Have recruit posters and let people “Join” the Empire. They could hand out cards that look like an Imperial I.D.

There are so many opportunities here for fans that people should be more excited with what Disney can do with the franchise.

I know I’m looking forward to it!
