Rumors have been circulating that Disneyland Paris is getting a new Star Wars section including an updated Star Tours, a restaurant that looks like Mos Eisley, and their own Jedi Training Academy. We're not sure if that's true yet, but it sure would be cool. More info about that here! And in related news, that's Rizzo the rat dressed as Yoda up there, just part of the awesome Star Wars Weekends merch that's been released this week. More of that over here.
"Paperman" is the Pixar short that's going to be shown in front of Wreck it Ralph, and it's mysteriously described as using "a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques."

And if all of that wasn't cool enough, their next project after that will be a Dia de los Muertos based film. More info on that here!
