The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - Book Trailer 2010



Here's the book trailer for the fantastic Making Of The Empire Strikes Back book I bought a couple of months ago. It's every bit the equal to the Making of Star Wars book by the same author that came out a few years ago. Can't wait for the Making Of Return Of The Jedi book.

Pirates Of The Caribbean Storybook 1970's



A friend of mine at work gave me this fantastic Pirates Of The Caribbean storybook from the 1970's. It contains tons of great info about the iconic ride, which unfortunately isn't quite the same anymore. I love the 1960's era promotional pictures of the attraction, espcially the ones with people riding the ride.








I think my favorite part of the book is the Mad style attraction map. It was too big to scan at once so I had to do it twice. It's still a thing of beauty though.





I'm thrilled to get this great book for my Disneyland collection. Maybe the new Pirates movie coming out this summer will have a little more of the feel of the ride but I doubt it. Oh well, I'll always have this book to remember the original attraction.
