Star Wars: The Force Awakens Is Coming Home!

Oh man, we knew it was coming but I can’t believe it’s almost here. Just yesterday Disney announced that STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will officially hit Digital HD on 4/1 and Blu Ray on 4/5. Knowing how much I’ll want to watch it the weekend of 4/1 with the family means I’ll be buying myself a digital copy and then probably heading out to pick up a Steelbook disc version from Best Buy on Tuesday (because there is never enough STAR WARS!!!).

While that makes me a big nerd it also will benefit those of you who choose to follow us on twitter @DadWorldOrder as I plan to give away a free copy of the Force Awakens to one lucky follower. Just give us an add and I’ll have details up soon.

Big Hero 6 TV Series Is Coming To Disney XD!

Well this is definitely big news in my home as my son spent his 3rd birthday party running around pretending to be Hiro and Baymax and most of last year watching the wonderful film Big Hero 6. Just announced this morning, Disney X D, which is already a powerhouse with its Marvel and Star Wars content will be adding a brand new Big Hero 6 series which will tell the continuing adventures of the team.

While not much info is available Disney’s own in house blog Oh My Disney announced the following :

Here’s what we know so far: The series picks up immediately following the events in the film. Hiro is the newest prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, and he faces daunting academic challenges …. not to mention the social trials of being the little man on campus. Off campus, the stakes are raised for Big Hero 6 as they must protect their city from an array of scientifically enhanced villains.

I cannot wait for the show to hit in 2017 and even though I would love to see another big screen adventure for the team I am more than happy to know my kids will be able to enjoy the world of Big Hero 6 even more!
