Disney Announces ‘Star Wars’ Theme Parks | Film News
At the D23 Expo in California, Disney Chairman Bob Iger unveiled plans for two Star Wars Theme parks. Both to be 14-acre parks will feature aliens, humanoids, and droids, with one to feature as a part of Disney‘s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, and the other to be stationed at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
As a part of the Star Wars panel, J J Abrams brought out the Force Awakens cast, complete with John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, and Harrison Ford. A new poster featuring Ford was released before the news of the parks were broken to excited fans. Iger stated:
“Everything we create will be part of our storytelling… Nothing in the land will be out of character or stray from the mythology.” He went on to mention that everybody working in the parks would be operated by local inhabitants of each part of the parks’ world – with actors dressed as droids or aliens respectively. Iger said guests will “truly become a part of their favorite Star Wars stories.”
You can take a closer look at the concept art below. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for a December 18 release.
