  • In other Star Wars news, The Muppet Newsflash has the 411 on new Star Wars themed Muppet dolls that will be available exclusively at Disney theme parks.

  • ComingSoon.net visited ILM and spoke with John Knoll and Hal Hickel who worked on the visual effects for Disney’s Pirates Of The Caribbean series. 
  • Sony Studios practices fuzzy math in complaining Spidey 3 owns the 6 day world record for movie debuts.
