Half a year after the initial “Star Wars Land” announcement at D23, Disney has finally let hardcore fans in on more details.
About dang time, we say :)
The new “Star Wars”-themed land, slated to open in California’s Disneyland and the Walt Disney World in Florida, was teased during the retrospective ABC “The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” special which aired over the weekend. Although it gave no details on when the highly anticipated themed area will open, it did share a bunch of new concept art.
“Star Wars Land” is being modelled after a “remote, outpost planet” where it will be possible to “meet droids and aliens”. It will also feature a Millennium Falcon attraction, a Star Wars-themed street market, a local cantina, a dinner club, and much more.
2 attractions have also been identified: one will allow park guests to “pilot the Millennium Falcon” and find out if it’s really “the fastest ship in the galaxy”, while the other has an “epic battle” taking place between the Resistance and the First Order of December 2015 film, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens“.
Check out the “Star Wars Land” concept art:
The “Star Wars Land” has not yet been officially named but film actor Harrison Ford (aka Han Solo), who introduced the segment, called it the “Star Wars Experience”.
We know where we’re going the very second it opens to public ;)
