How to Make a ‘Top Gear’ Theme for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

When it comes to themeing a Star Wars movie, there’s a certain amount of research that goes into deciding how a movie should look.

And this theme for Star Wars: Episode VII: The Last Jedi, the latest in the Star Wars franchise, has to be among the most meticulous and meticulous I’ve ever seen.

The Star Wars universe has a long and storied history of using the theme park to tell stories about its heroes.

In the late 1980s, a group of young children created the “Alderaaners” theme park in order to promote the Return of the Jedi.

As part of the project, the children used a giant robot that appeared to have been created from the bones of a dead giant ape, and placed it in a giant room.

This set-up made the attraction look like a living monument.

The robot’s name, Darth Vader, was a nod to George Lucas’ famous character from Star Wars, Darth Vader, the infamous villain in the film, Return of The Jedi.

The theme park had been a source of great joy for many children throughout the 80s and 90s, and in the early 2000s, Disney bought the rights to the Darth parody in order for the theme to be used in Star Wars films.

But Disney also had to contend with the fact that the theme had a strong relationship with the Star Trek franchise, which was the subject of a lot of controversy in the 1980s.

In 1991, Star Trek actor George Takei, who played Spock, famously said that he was “totally against [the] Darth theme.”

Takei was referring to the fact, as Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry later explained, that the original Star Trek series had the word “Darth” spelled backwards, because the show had a “big bad.”

While it’s true that the word was spelled backward, Star Wars fans were upset that Takei didn’t get his way.

Takei wrote a letter to Roddes, explaining that “it was a very popular, iconic word for the show” and asking that it be changed to “Dastardly.”

Takeis letter led to the creation of the “Dasher” theme in 2002.

A decade later, Disney changed the word to “Hoth,” and the word Darth to “Dr. Dolittle.”

This is what it looks like when the Dastardlies and the Sith are locked in a battle.
