Tonight during ABC’s “The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” Harrison Ford joined to share details about the upcoming much-anticipated new STAR WARS expansion at Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park.
Literally unlike anything seen before, the new land will take guests to a never-before-seen planet that features a remote trading port with two attractions: a rumored trackless adventure featuring a battle between the Resistance and the First Order plus a Millennium Falcon attraction that puts you “in complete control” once you actually board the famed vessel that you’ll be “actually piloting.”
Other details hinted during the special included a street market with “local delicacies,” a Cantina lounge “for the truly adventurous” and an “upscale dinner club” that could potentially be a dinner show experience.
The ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life in both parks entails creating Disney’s largest single themed land expansions ever at 14 acres each. No official launch date has been given yet but rumblings place target opening at Disneyland as soon as late 2018.
The next venture into a Galaxy Far, Far away will be December 2017 for STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII. The standalone spin-off film ROGUE ONE is set to debut in theaters December 16, 2016.
