Chewbacca was forced to step in to break up a fight between Mr. Incredible and Batgirl.
Tensions between the costumed characters spilled over on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame yesterday as Mr. Incredible launched an attack on Batman.
But in astonishing footage, captured by production company FilmOn.com, the character from Star Wars grabs Mr. Incredible in a bid to pull him off his costumed rival.
A man was arrested over the weekend after allegedly attacking workers in front of the Tower of Terror ride at Disney’s California Adventure Park in Anaheim.
In a YouTube video of the encounter, the man is seen flailing at a security employee and struggling to keep his balance outside the ride. Another employee, dressed in the Tower of Terror bellhop uniform, can be seen asking the crowd to “back up.”
A woman is heard in the video shouting, “You’re in Disneyland … there are kids here.” It was posted on the video sharing site with a caption that reads, “We had a weird day at Disneyland…Fiiiiight!!!”
Police responded to the park at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday to find patrons holding the man down on the ground, NBCLosAngeles.com reported.
The suspect was identified as 53-year-old Glenn Horlacher. He was arrested on charges of battery and assault, and released from jail Saturday night, according to NBCLosAngeles.com.
A security guard was treated for minor injuries.
“Our security cast member was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for the injuries he sustained and then released,” according to a statement released by the park on Monday. “We appreciate the actions of the guests who came to his aid during this uncharacteristic incident.”
Investigators were attempting to determine what prompted the altercation, which park officials described as a “very unusual occurrence.”
Park officials would not, however, quantify how often park visitors are arrested or detained.
Disney spokeswoman Suzi Brown told msnbc.com on Tuesday that there were no plans to change security procedures at the park as a result of the incident, which she said was still under review.

The eldest child of “Star Wars” creator George Lucas is going back to her career in cage fighting after taking a year-long break for her wedding, MMAFighting.com reported Thursday.
Amanda Lucas, who has cameos in all three “Star Wars” prequels, told the mixed martial arts fighting website she would make her return to the cage on Saturday at Freestyle Cage Fighting 46 in Shawnee, Okla.
“Although I didn’t fight in 2010 I was actively training, competing in grappling tournaments and earning my purple belt in Brazillian jiu-jitsu,” said 30-year-old Lucas who, like her siblings Katie and Jett, was adopted by the US movie maker.
“The main reasons I didn’t fight was first, I got married and I assured everyone that I wouldn’t walk down the aisle looking like a battered woman. Second, I wanted to focus on getting technically better in all areas of MMA.”
Lucas holds a 1-1 professional MMA record and last competed in November 2009, earning a three-round unanimous decision over Christen Bedwell at FCF 37.
