A 14 acre “Star Wars Land” will start construction in 2017 in San Diego and will take about 3 years to build. The park will feature new rides such as taking control of the Millennium Falcon in a secret mission as well as the Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine, the infamous hub for rogues, bounty hunters and smugglers.
The new Star Wars lands will consist of immersive environments evoking the Star Wars universe. Disney CEO Bob Iger described it as a “remote port, one of the last stops before wild space…” and will also have “…an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you right in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and The Resistance…”
A Star Wars theme park will also be built simultaneously at Disneyland in Orlando Florida.
To coincide with Star Wars Episode 7 : The Force Awakens, a new Star Wars-themed experience: “Season of the Force” has become fully operational.
