Disney really wants to care about Star Wars, so much that they want to build something called “Star Wars Land” in their two theme parks in Florida and California.  During the D23 Fan Expo over the weekend, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced the expansion plans to their theme parks.  The pair of 14 acre Star Wars Land attractions will include cantinas, roaming creatures, the ability to fly the Millennium Falcon, and a lot more!  I guess according to this concept art from Disney below, it will be like you are in the Star Wars universe!

Star Wars-Themed Lands Coming to Disney Parks – Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced at D23 EXPO 2015 that Star Wars-themed lands will be coming to Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla., creating Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14-acres each, transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.  These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.

There is no timetable for when this might open.  But here is what Disney CEO Bob Iger said about Star Wars Land.

“We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever.  These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.  You can experience new stories with characters from The Force Awakens, and familiar characters from the Star Wars saga.”

One of two main attractions in both theme parks will be the ability to fly the Millennium Falcon.  The other main attraction was not disclosed.  Star Wars Land will be an entire world, complete with costumed castmembers, restaurants, and other attractions that will make the experience fully immersive.  So, go to Disney World, see Mickey Mouse, and feel like you are in the Star Wars universe, I’m in!  Oh, and also over the weekend Disney released the logo for The Incredibles 2 movie, i’m stoked to see this!
