Over the next few years, The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) has plans to bring one of its flagship franchises to theme park visitors in a big way. Star Wars land, a new 14-acre attraction, will be coming to both Disneyland in California and Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida, and it will officially be called Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The attraction will provide a number of new ways for visitors to engage with the fan-favorite universe and will contain two featured rides. The first will let riders pilot and crew a life-sized rendering of Hans Solo's starship, the Millennium Falcon, while the second will place visitors on a Star Destroyer, in the midst of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. Visitors can also lodge at a Star Wars-themed hotel, which has been described as "unlike anything that exists today." What we didn't know until recently was the prominent role that graphics processing pioneer NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) is playing to bring Disney's … [Read more...] about How NVIDIA Is Helping Disney Bring Star Wars to Life

There are rumours abound about Solo: A Star Wars Story and its "troubled production"; reports fuelled largely by Ron Howard stepping in to take over from The LEGO Movie duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, following whispers of clashes with screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. However, if there are cracks in Solo, Disney's determined not to let them show: the new trailer's gone all-out to tease an old-fashioned heist movie with verve and style. Ahead of the film's premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival, the full 2-minute trailer hints at plenty of new planets and characters, including a first look at Paul Bettany's crime lord Dryden Vos.

Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story, which makes it look less like a Rogue One slog and more like a Guardians of the Galaxy bit of fun. Like its standalone predecessor, the film does however also centre around a heist, with Woody Harrelson's Tobias Beckett recruiting Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo for the job. Emilia Clarke's Qi'Ra is also on board for it, along with Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian. Riding high off the success of Atlanta, Glover is perhaps the most exciting addition to the franchise, seen in the trailer telling Han, "Everything you've heard about me is true," as his drink is refilled. A little more of Solo's humour gets teased too, with Han saying, "190 years old? You look great!" when he learns of Chewbacca's age.
