We just got back from Disney World, celebrating our twin toddlers’ third birthday. It is really cool to see their fascination with Pooh and Mickey, who maintain the highest level of celebrity status. Disney is one of the few places where I actually enjoy going through the gift stores and you should not be at all surprised to learn that the Star Wars merchandise is in full effect.
Days after the news that Disney purchased the Star Wars franchise, artists began to sketch a Disney-themed Star Wars universe. Well, I can tell you that these early visions are now realized in the form of products — and LOTS of them. Here are a few photos for your perusal.
As gimmicky as these are, I must admit I was tempted to buy the whole lot. I can’t decide if the duck-billed Darth Maul was disturbing or fascinating — the Mickey Mouse clubhouse just doesn’t have a lot of villains other than that loud mouth, Pete.
