A: Before you do that I suggest you contact the Disney company and get their approval before you start using images or characters based on Star Wars as the theme of your new business. You may run afoul of their copyrights or trademarks if you use direct copies of their Star Wars themes or characters. Make sure you have their consent to use any of their images etc. in any of your advertising or promotional materials.

You may want to get the advice of a lawyer or firm which handles copyrights and trademarks to guide you through this process.
