On the eve of “Rogue One,” it only made sense for Bryan Starr and his wife, Taylor, to return to the scene where their lives changed a year ago.
That place was Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, where Taylor surprised her husband, a filmmaker, with the news that she was pregnant. The announcement was made while Bryan stood shoulder to shoulder with Darth Vader and some Stormtroopers.
The entire moment from December 2015 was caught on video, which has since been viewed more than 2.8 million times on YouTube.
Never miss a local story.
The Starr’s visited Florida in late November this year with their daughter, Willow, to rendezvous with Chelsea, the Disney employee who helped organize last year’s announcement.
“It was a great experience for us all,” said Starr, who also captured this year’s Disney visit on video. “She (Chelsea) was so excited to meet Willow, saying to her, ‘I’ve waited your entire life to meet you!’”
Starr, who has the Empire and Rebel symbols tattooed on his left wrist, already has bought tickets for “Rogue One” and hopes to see it at least three times in the theater.
Starr pieced together a video of this year’s Disney visit and uploaded it to YouTube Wednesday.
