Disney announced a ton of new theme park attractions coming to its parks in California and Florida, Saturday at fan event D23.
Among them, are several new “Star Wars” experiences including a launch bay, an update to its popular “Star Tours,” and “Star Wars”-themed lands.
Let’s take a closer look at everything “Star Wars” coming to Disneyland and Disney World.
Disney CEO Bob Iger took the stage at the company's biannual fan event D23 Saturday to unveil new 'Star Wars'-themed lands coming to Disneyland in Anaheim, California and Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida's Walt Disney World Resort.
'We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever,' said Iger. '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.'
The other will put park guests in control of Han Solo's Millennium Falcon in a 'customised secret mission.'
And here's an idea of what the 'Star Wars'-themed land will look like. Each themed land will span across 14 acres in Disneyland and in Disney World.
The two lands won't be the only 'Star Wars' additions. Starting in 2016, visitors in both parks will be able to take a ride on Hyperspace Mountain.
The Star Wars Launch Bay will launch later this year at both parks and feature an interactive experience providing guests with an inside look into the next film, 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.'
Disney's 'Star Tours' attraction will be updated with new characters and locations from 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.'
The park's Jedi Training Academy attraction for younger guests will also get a makeover with new characters from Disney XD show 'Star Wars Rebels.'
