D23 Unveiled Huge Star Wars Expansions For US Theme Parks

Star Wars LandWhat would a trip to D23 be without any discussion regarding the nature of Disney’s biggest properties. Literally, biggest properties. That of course would be Disneyland in Anaheim, CA and Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.

With the upcoming Star Wars movie coming closer to release with each passing day, the excitement and passion for that world that was “a long time ago, in a galaxy far away” is growing exponentially. With that the Disney company unveiled what would be the largest expansions that either of these parks have seen.

Both versions will be the largest-ever park expansions, at 14 acres each. (You can find good speculative info hereabout where these expansions are likely to go.)

But the size is actually less important than the attractions. Star Wars Land will be a wholly in-character experience, with alien servers and workers at all parts of the attraction, including a Cantina. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy two signature attractions, including one that puts fans inside the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.

Bob Iger said (bold emphasis ours), “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.”  

Bob Iger also said at the panel,

I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars. Through each new attraction and new land we create, we push the boundaries of what is possible. And as you can imagine, with Star Wars, we are taking that to a whole new level, with a whole galaxy to explore.

Here’s a gallery of three pieces of concept art, from the Star Wars feed:
