— The tagline for the party
The Star Wars Takeover is an upcoming party in Club Penguin, which will start on July 25, 2013, and go on until August 13, 2013. It will be based off of the Star Wars films. It will be Club Penguin’s first partnership with Lucasfilm, and will occur only months after Disney’s purchase of the company in October 2012.
The storyline for the party is based on the Original Trilogy of the Star Wars films, mainly Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
THE THREAT OF DARTH HERBERT
It is a time of grave danger. DARTH HERBERT and the evil Empire threaten the island.
Join the rebel forces to battle Stormtroopers, steal the secret plans, and destroy the Death Star.
Without your help, destruction is certain.
Defeat the dark side and restore freedom to the galaxy…
Herbert returns to seek revenge for his defeat during Operation: Hot Sauce. He assumes the role of Darth Herbert (an obvious spoof of the famous Sith Lord Darth Vader), and recruits an army of Stormtrooper penguins to make up the Galactic Empire.

A rebellion is created in order to defeat the empire and destroy the Death Star.
