It is a period of rebirth at Walt Disney Productions. Although the company had almost been destroyed by an evil empire of corporate raiders, a small band of freedom fighters led by Roy E. Disney thwarted the attack and restored order to the company. 

New CEO Michael Eisner and president Frank Wells have dispatched the creative wizards at Walt Disney Imagineering to restore hope to the company’s theme parks in the form of innovative new rides and attractions.

Golden Memories: Anthony Daniels’ Reflections

StarWars.com Team | July 20, 2008

It has been 30 years since I first stood on a lonely planet, Tatooine, and I said the opening lines of the first Star Wars movie ever. “Did you hear that? They shut down the main reactor!
