Tom Brady Becomes a Jedi During a Family Trip to Disney World!

Tom Brady finally got to celebrate his Super Bowl win at Disney World!

The 43-year-old NFL player took a trip to the theme park with his family on Monday (April 5) in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The Tampba Bay Buccaneers quarterback was spotted with his wife Gisele Bundchen and their kids while spending time in the Star Wars area of the park.

“Thank you @waltdisneyworld for showing me and my family an incredible time. Darth Vader told my son Benny “the force is strong with this one” and now I will be spending the rest of the week convincing him that a) Jedi isn’t a real profession and b) he is not allowed on the ‘dark side,’” Tom wrote on Instagram with the below video.

Page Six reports that the family went mostly unnoticed since everyone was wearing masks.

“People didn’t seem to know it was them. There were a few who recognized them, and [Tom] took a photo with one family. They were helping their kids create a lightsaber,” the spy said.

See photos from the family’s trip to Costa Rica last month!

Sebastian Stan Reacts to Rumors of Being Asked to Play a Young Luke Skywalker

Sebastian Stan is reacting to rumors about a Star Wars casting.

The 38-year-old Falcon and the Winter Soldier actor made an appearance on Good Morning America.

During the interview, he addressed speculation about him being asked to play a young Luke Skywalker in the iconic franchise, which is something fans have buzzed about for years. Mark Hamill also previously gave his support to the actor years ago, calling him a “wonderful actor” on Twitter.

“If Mark Hamill calls me personally to tell me that he feels inclined to share this role with me, then I’ll believe it,” he said.

“Until then, I won’t believe it.”

Fans have noticed that the two look similar for years, which Mark Hamill himself has commented on, jokingly calling himself Sebastian‘s father.

One Star Wars star recently opened up about her experience with bullying after starring in the film franchise.

Kelly Marie Tran Opens Up About Racist & Misogynist Bullying She Faced After 'Star Wars'

Kelly Marie Tran isn’t holding back.

The 32-year-old actress is getting candid about the bullying she faced after being cast in 2017′s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which resulted in criticism that caused her to eventually delete social media and withdraw from public life, which she discussed in an essay for the New York Times.

She is now speaking out about the experience in conversation with THR, explaining that the experience felt like she “fell in love very publicly and then very publicly had an embarrassingly horrible breakup.”

“If someone doesn’t understand me or my experience, it shouldn’t be my place to have to internalize their misogyny or racism or all of the above,” she said of what she learned in therapy after the harassment.

“Maybe they just don’t have the imagination to understand that there are different types of people living in the world.”

“What’s interesting to me about working in this industry is that certain things become so public, even if you don’t really mean them to be, [like] the succession of events in which I left the internet for my own sanity…it was basically me being like, ‘Oh, this isn’t good for my mental health. I’m obviously going to leave this.’”

“I left. I said no to a lot of things. It felt like I was just hearing the voice of my agents and my publicity team and all of these people telling me what to say and what to do and how to feel. And I realized, I didn’t know how I felt anymore. And I didn’t remember why I was in this in the first place,” she said.

“Any time that happens, I have to close up shop and go away for a while and really interact in the real world — read books and journal and go on hikes and look at a tree and remind myself that there was a fire that burned inside of me before Star Wars, before any of this. And I needed to find that again.”

She also explained how she recorded her Raya dialogue amid the pandemic.
