Disney is Hosting a Star Wars Marathon

A good time this will be.

Posted by Leah Singerman


We dweebs don’t spend all of our time sitting in front of the computer or playing video games, and Disney is giving us a chance to show it. In January 2015 Disney is going to host a Star Wars Marathon Weekend, and it’s gonna be awesome.

Watch the video below to hear the announcement from our favorite good guy turned bad guy turned good guy, my buddy Darth Vader (and some others).

I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty excited. According the event’s website, the weekend is going to be full of Star Wars-themed events, like the Wookiee Welcome Party and the Star Wars Rebel Challenge.

Maybe you’re a marathon runner. Maybe you’re more of the power walking type. Or maybe when you move you kind of look like C3PO. No matter what, it's gonna be a great time. As my favorite 900 year-old once said, “Do or do not. There is no try.”
