Nerd News Roundup

Star Wars

The good folks at Disney are making my inner 10 year old scream and jump up and down with the news that they are now polling visitors on how much they’d be interested in a Star Wars land in the Disney theme parks.

I have one response to your survey, Disney Corp.:


Star Trek
Here’s an international trailer that’s been making the rounds:

There’s a lot more explosions and pretty women in their underwear than I remember in previous Star Trek movies.

The LEGO movie

Otherwise known as the most shameless attempt at getting your little urchins to scream at you to buy them the toys they see on screen since… well, just about every other kid’s movie that’s ever been made.

There is a contest for would-be film makers to have some of their footage included in the movie.

Beginning March 25, LEGO fans registered worldwide on will have a one-of-a-kind, hands-on opportunity to take part in the growing excitement for “THE LEGO MOVIE” by creating a 15-30 second video clip based on its story, in the LEGO ReBrick Movie Competition. The winning video could be featured in the film, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures, opening February 7, 2014.

The fan-produced clips will relate to an exciting scene in the film, in which the citizens of the LEGO universe rally to prevent an unspeakable disaster. They do this by quickly disassembling the elements of their environments, brick by brick, and rebuilding them into fantastic and fun hybrid vehicles and tools—the stranger and more innovative, the better, like rocket/dragons or butterfly/speedboats—to take part in an epic battle.
