Rumor Jedi Academy Is Closing Not Completely True

Yesterday a rumor started circulating that the Jedi Academy is closing. Now Disney rumors come and they go. Some end up being at least partly true. Others turn out to be completely false.

The rumor about the Jedi Academy closing seemed very strange. After all, Disney is spending a lot of money creating Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Hollywood Studios. This is one of those rumors that turned out to be partly true. Continue reading Rumor Jedi Academy Is Closing Not Completely True

Galaxy’s Edge: What we know so far

New Star Wars Guided Tour

Can’t wait for Star Wars Land to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios or Disneyland? You are not alone. There are thousands of us Force sensitive types waiting to travel to a galaxy far, far away.
