Welcome to Force Friday — our weekly roundup of all things Star Wars.

Here's what's happening around the Star Wars galaxy this week:



“Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey” premiered at the Paramount Theatre as part of the SXSW Film Festival with J.J. Abrams, VFX Supervisor Roger Guyett, Supervising Sound Editor Matthew Wood, Co-Producer Michelle Rejwan and R2-D2. The feature-length documentary is an in-depth bonus feature on the upcoming Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack.

Theme Parks:

The classic version of Star Tours is no more (as you might know if you speak French and read our headline). With the closure of Star Tours at Disneyland Paris, Rex no longer pilots the Endor Express at any Disney destination in the galaxy. The attraction at Disneyland Paris will be replaced with the "Star Tours: The Adventures Continue" experience which can be currently seen at Disneyland, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Tokyo Disneyland.
