It is finally official! Today at the D23 EXPO 2015, The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced that Star Wars-themed lands will be coming to Disneyland park in Anaheim, CA., and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fl.
Ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life in the two parks include 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.
The new themed lands “puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance,” says The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger.
These authentic lands will have two signature attractions. Along with the thrilling battle experience, another attraction puts guests behind the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, as they take on a customized secret mission
