NFL meets Star Wars: Tom Brady and Julian Edelman visit Galaxy’s Edge

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman celebrated their Super Bowl LIII victory at Walt Disney World. While there they made sure to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

When the New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams they celebrated the only way they knew how. That’s right, Tom Brady and Julian Edelman went to Walt Disney World.

This kind of celebration is not a new concept. “I’m going to Disney World!,” and “I’m going to Disneyland!” are advertising slogans used in a series of television commercials by The Walt Disney Company that began airing in 1987.

“Used to promote the company’s theme park resorts in Florida and California, the commercials most often are broadcast following the Super Bowl and typically feature an NFL player (usually the Super Bowl MVP) shouting the phrase while celebrating the team’s victory immediately after the championship game.”

Surrounded by cheering fans, Tom and Julian joined Mickey Mouse and his friends in a grand parade but that is not all. The six-time Super Bowl winners donned Jedi robes and lightsabers at Galaxy’s Edge. Julian posted a few pictures to his Instagram account of their time in Walt Disney World including what looks to be Jedi training.

In one of Julian’s pictures “These are not the droids you are looking for… #WaltDisneyWorld”, both men chose blue lightsabers with the addition of sunglasses with the glorious Millennium Falcon in the background. Between the two, Julian’s pose as a Jedi is spot on.
