Disney is adding Stars Wars themed lands at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, the company announced at its D23 conference.
“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” the Disney Parks Blog quoted The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger as saying.
“We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever,” Iger added. “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.”
According to the blog:
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.
The new lands will be 14 acres each. The land will be added to Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World and at Disneyland Park.
