Jedi Training Academy is a festival at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort and at Disneyland at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. It is part of the Star Wars Weekends festival at Disney World, and operates year-round at Disneyland.

Overview

Despite being featured daily throughout the year, this attaction is especially popular during Star Wars Weekends. Sixteen or more children are chosen from the audience as Jedi Younglings to participate in a training session by the Jedi Master. They are provided training lightsabers and Jedi robes. As the master completes the instruction of a simple combination of lightsaber attacks to the children, Darth Vader, Darth Maul and a pair of stormtroopers appear. Each Jedi trainee faces off in turn with either Maul or Vader until the villains retreat back to the stage, outnumbered (there was, however, one viral instance of an 8 year old girl who, rather than fighting Darth Vader, instead opted to join the dark side with him, and was subsequently led to 'the Sith Training Academy' by the understandably flummoxed Jedi Master). The children, now Padawans, are congratulated on their mastering of the Force by Yoda, then return the training lightsabers and robe, and are given a diploma for their participation. A duplicate version of the interactive show also occurs daily, as a standalone event at the Tomorrowland Terrace in Disneyland.

The Jedi Training Academy show is rumored to be redesigned into a more elaborate and extended show, at the current location of Sounds Dangerous! after the attraction closes in May 2012. This rumored version of the Jedi Training Academy will presumably feature an Audio-animatronic Yoda interacting through a Dagobah-themed set. In an interview with Disney twenty-three magazine, regarding the planning stages of future Star Wars attractions, Geroge Lucas said, "I'd love to see more Star Wars rides at Disney parks."
