"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
The Star Wars universe is making its big Disney debut later this summer.
The D23 Expo is coming to Anaheim, California, on Aug. 9-11, previewing much of what the House of Mouse has in store for fans in the coming year — including a first look at plans for their newly acquired Star Wars brand.
From the D23 Expo press release:
For the first time at the D23 Expo Star Wars fans can have access to experiences created for them by Lucasfilm and Disney. Darth Vader: The Evolution of a Villain, located in the DCP pavilion, showcases the development of the iconic villain from early concepts to striking realization. Crash Course in the Force: Star Wars Saga 101, presented by Lucasfilm’s resident authority Pablo Hidalgo in Stage 23, will give Star Wars newbies and experts alike a thorough grounding in all matters of the Force and the Star Wars legacy.
There are no details about the upcoming Star Wars films and if they’ll have a presence at D23, but one can certainly hope.
