Not long from now, in a theater very, very near…
In approximately 45 days (!!!), the majority of the world will lose their ever-loving minds as the seventh film in the beloved Star Wars franchise is finally projected in all its glory.
Happy tears. So. Many. Happy tears. If I had a tail, I’d wiggle it harder than Jabba gasping for air!
Anyway, before The Force Awakens overwhelms our senses with a visual and emotional maelstrom so powerful that we’re all revert to quivering puddles in our seats, Disney’s official fan club D23 will stoke that fire inside you just a bit more with the quarterly release of their magazine circulated only for their Gold members.
Disney’s in-house publication – Disney Twenty-Three – will showcase exclusive insights and interviews about Star Wars: The Force Awakens in their Winter issue, to be released mid-November.
As announced via press release:
To celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney twenty-three unlocks the power of the force to give fans a look behind the making of the newest installment in the Star Wars saga. The issue opens with “guest editor” C-3PO admitting he is unfamiliar with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club(“…although I am very familiar with the R2 series of droid, I am less familiar with the D23 line. Would it be R2-D23?”) and continues with candid interviews with the original Star Wars leads—Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford—looking back (and ahead) at the ongoing strength of these out-of-this-world films.
Director J.J. Abrams—whose long-standing history with Disney goes back to the TV show Felicity—sits down for a revealing Q&A, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy talks about inheriting one of the most beloved franchises of all time. Plus, Imagineer Scott Trowbridge gives fans a peek at what’s in store for guests at the parks, following Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger’s announcement at D23 EXPO 2015 of Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Additionally, ALL D23 members – general and gold – have the fantastic opportunity to witness the highly anticipated space epic that’ll flash across the big screen beginning December 18.
