Darth Vader Goes to Disneyland After LucasFilm Acquisition


Since it was announced earlier this week that LucasFilm has been acquired by Disney, it seems only natural that the Sith Lord would pay a visit to his new home. In a new commercial released by Disney Parks, they ask Darth Vader what he’ll be doing now that he’s part of the Disney family (mimicking their post-Super Bowl win commercials).
