At Disneyland, there’s a show called Jedi Training Academy wherein kids learn how to fight with lightsabers. Partway through the show, a bunch of Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, and Darth Maul come out to fight the kids (because of course they’re at Disneyland). This little Jedi just totally goes berserk on Vader and the Stormtroopers and his Jedi master. The only thing that compares to this is the little girl who totally joins the dark side during the show.

Speaking of Star Wars cuteness: an anonymous user on our Facebook shared a super cute photo of their dog with us. The caption is what makes it, though: “We get this puppy in 2 weeks. My 11 yo son named her Rey, after the female protagonist in Star Wars. There is hope. :)” There sure is, friend. <3

  • This behind the scenes look at how BB-8 actually works is some real movie magic (not really).
  • Finally, for some reason, a ton of people on the internet spent their day watching a live Periscope video of a puddle. Yep. A puddleThe future is now. (via The Daily Dot)
