    Jedi Training Academy.... lol

    The show was starting as we passed and we saw a nice table by the stage, dashed over to watch.
    It's a great show!
    OK, I'm a Star Wars (somewhat, have not caught up on the new material) fan, but one friend is not, she laughed just as much.

    I enjoyed watching how artfully the Jedi Masters handled the younglings
    the dialogue is great...

    though we missed Vadar's comment that led to "there's a line"
    and the kids... always a creative response, though one young guy ran terrified to his mom

    like Jungle Cruise, has anyone made a list of the usual material?
    speaking of which, Jungle Cruise had new creatures and new material ;-)


    while I was watching, I wondered if a child ever decides to go over to the dark side.....

    JTA is one of the best things in TL right now. I love it to pieces. The guy who plays the main Jedi is a terrific actor.

    Re: Jedi Training Academy.... lol

    The only thing that I distinctly remember is that the Jedi Master telling the trainees to "aim the light saber higher" as "we're not attacking Ewoks"...
    "Hello folks, welcome aboard the Disneyland Railroad..."
    "The Gods have been angered by all the celebratin'..."

    Re: Jedi Training Academy.... lol

    The line that leads to "That's because there's a line!" is something I heard on my last visit. I've seen the show multiple times, but laughed out loud because of that.

    Vader's line before that is, "I've been waiting for you..."

    There's a video on youtube of a girl that chose to go to the dark side. I'm pretty sure it's happened a couple times, but it's still funny to see.

    I know which Jedi you are talking about. It's the Asian one, He is my favorite! My favorite line is when he is talking to an asian kid and says, "This is you in 20 years! Say 'Hello!' to the family for me!" LOL!

    I wish Jedi Academy had been around when I was a kid. I would have had so much fun doing that!

    I think it says something about my age that the Disneyland Jedi Academy actually came around during my childhood. It doesn't feel that long ago, but I feel particularly old being able to say that...

    But I'm quite sad that I never got the chance to be part of it, despite trying once. But it's okay. Just because the Force wasn't strong with me on that particular day doesn't mean I'm not a true Jedi at heart.

    Are the kids for that chosen entirely at random? I hadn't thought of this before but it must be hard for the ones who don't get picked.

    Yes, they're random. And yes, it is hard for the ones who don't get picked (sigh).

    But I've actually seen people try and go to multiple showtimes.

    That's funny! ;-)

    everyone, great comments!
    I'm glad so see so many enjoy it...

    there was a tiny young girl, she just stood looking up at Vadar
    Cute Jedi Master says, "she's fast, you can hardly see her move"

    I also like, "you will find (Jedi hand gesture) all my jokes funny"

    We took our then 7yo on a surprise trip to DL in 2012. Being a Star Wars fan and knowing he would absolutely love it, JTA was on our must-do list. He (thankfully) got chosen for the second show (in which he tried). Otherwise I know we would have been there trying all day! I have heard that wearing a Star Wars t-shirt (he was) helps but I don't think they noticed. Enthusiasm goes a long way in getting chosen. JTA was definitely a highlight of our trip.
