Darth Vader Invades Disneyland, Checks Out the Dumbo Ride (Video)

The Wrap

Disney isn't wasting any time exploiting its acquisition of Lucasfilm.

While a new "Star Wars" film likely won't hit the big screen until 2015, Disney -- which announced it had acquired George Lucas' company for $4 billion on Tuesday -- has released a video of "Star Wars" villain Darth Vader, accompanied by a pair of storm troopers, enjoying the attractions at the Happiest Place on Earth as he settles into his role as the black sheep of the Disney family.

The Dumbo ride. The fireworks display and parade. Using the Force to remove Excalibur from its stone -- you know, the usual Disney experience.

What's next, replacing the Epcot Center with the Death Star? It is a small world, after all...

Ponder the cross-promotional possibilities as you watch the video.
