How to Have a 'Star Wars' Inspired Day in Orange County


"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is sure to be a blockbuster, selling out theaters across the world! Can't wait for the new Star Wars movie to come out on December 18th? Create your own Star Wars-inspired Day right here in the OC with these five ideas!

Nerd Out at Disneyland
Check out "Season of the Force" at Disneyland in preparation for Star Wars Land! "Season of the Force" will take over Tomorrowland, giving you a chance to watch Star Wars movies at Disneyland and meet Darth Vader, Chewbacca, and the rest of the crew. Kids can also train in the Jedi Training Academy

Test Your Star Wars Knowledge
Think you know everything about Star Wars? Stop by the Harp Inn Irish Pub in Costa Mesa for their Trivia Nights! Check out the Geeks Who Drink Facebook page for even more Star Wars related events!

Celebrate Jedis & Stormtroopers Through Art
Celebrate the art of being a Jedi with the Artists' Republic "Son of Skywalker" art exhibition through December 23, 2015. It's free to get in, and surprise guests (maybe a Stormtrooper or two) are promised! Visit the Artists' Republic 4 Tomorrow gallery in Laguna Beach to see the exhibition.

Learn To Be A Jedi
The Orange County Star Wars Society hosts a free Saber Class every Wednesday from 7-10pm in Anaheim at Twila Reid Park. Stop by to show off your saber skills and meet a few like-minded fans. You may even come home with a date to the movie premiere!

Make Plans for the Premiere, in Style
Book your tickets for a showing of The Force Awakens at the Irvine Spectrum Regal Theater! Both IMAX and regular showings are available as well as "Wine & Dine" packages where customers can dine in the theater while watching the movie. Get directions to the Irvine Spectrum here.
So what are you waiting for? Celebrate your Star Wars fandom today and get set for "The Force Awakens", coming December 18th, 2015!
