The D23 Expo, which takes place this weekend in Anaheim, California, is like Comic Con for Disney fans. But it’s more than a place to buy the latest Mickey Mouse t-shirt. Disney now uses the convention to break news on their big properties like Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and more.

It seems like the Dark Lord of the Sith and his small Stormtrooper retinue got a bit lost on their way to Tokyo Disneyland's Star Tours event.
