In an in-depth interview with The Guardian, Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) discussed Disney’s desire to keep details of future Star Wars stories under wraps:

“The secrecy has been beyond ludicrous,” he sighs. “For heaven’s sake, it’s a movie. When I got the script, it was typed in black on paper of the deepest red so you couldn’t photocopy it. I got a hangover just reading it.”

He went on to discuss being chided for revealing an actor’s involvement in the film on Twitter:

“I said that I’d met so-and-so. An actor who plays a … thing in the film. A character. Immediately I received a message from Disney: ‘Remove the tweet! You’re not allowed to say that!’ Honestly. It’s a kind of Kremlin attitude. Look, I know perfectly well not to tell you now what I’m giving you for a Christmas present because it would spoil the surprise. And these films are all about opening the box on Christmas Day.”

He also discussed his opinion on the prequels:
“Hmm. I turned one on the other night. Sky seems to have devoted a whole channel to them. The effects are clever but pointless. The skill is there, but so what? Coldness, that’s the word. Bleakness, even.”

As your journey begins, you’ll meet your safari guide and make your way into the African savannah. There you’ll dine on a wild assortment of unique breakfast favorites inspired by the jungle diet of the rare “brunching tiger,” including fresh pastries, exotic fruit & chia parfaits, glazed pork belly bacon, pan-seared sausage and roasted gold potato & onion hash along with an assortment of juices, freshly brewed coffee and specialty teas.

After your feast is finished, your guide will escort you back to civilization in time for a private ride on the Jungle Cruise to hone your skipper skills before the park opens to the public.

To certify these brave explorers as officially unofficial Jungle Cruise skippers, each Guest will receive a special Tribal Mask keepsake to commemorate their adventure.

ESPN has released a statement regarding MLB Analyst Curt Schilling:

At all times during the course of their engagement with us, our commentators are directly linked to ESPN and are the face of our brand. We are a sports media company. Curt’s actions have not been consistent with his contractual obligations nor have they been professionally handled; they have obviously not reflected well on the company.  As a result, he will not appear on ESPN through the remainder of the regular season and our Wild Card playoff game.

Schilling was previously suspended from his Little League World Series duties after tweeting the following:
