At the D23 Expo today Bob Iger, Walt Disney Chairman & CEO, announced that both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios would be getting a Star Wars themed land. New attractions & events are coming along with the land. The biggest of which seems to be the ability to take control of the Millienium Falcon & another attraction which is “an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.” This will be Disney’s largest ever expansion at a whopping 14 acres! Hit the jump for more details.
The first signs of the new Star Wars land will most likely be the Star Wars Launch Bay which is set to open later this year and take guests into an interactive experience surrounding the The Force Awakens. Disney also announced that a seasonal event starting in early 2016. This event, The Season of the force will bring new experiences for guests at both parks. Hollywood Studios is also getting a new nighttime spectacular during Star Wars Weekends.
