Now this is cool. Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, FL has gone ahead to green light an entire land in the park dedicated to the Star Wars franchise. A new image released by the entertainment company gives us a first look at what the themed land will look like after dark.
The image was revealed at this morning’s D23: Destination D presentation which took place within Disney World. It was also simultaneously revealed that the existing Star Wars themed ride in Hollywood Studios, Star Tours, would be gaining a new “mission” that will be based on elements from the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII.
Check out the image, below:
The image gives us an idea what the land will look like after dark. We get to see the architecture and rich details that Disney parks are known for, and the image even includes Poe Dameron’s X-Wing from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Attractions featured in the new Star Wars themed land include a Millennium Falcon ride that allows guests to pilot the ship, and another that drops guests in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order in a “race against time”. Additional attractions will include a high-class dinner club, a street market, and a cantina. Rumors are even circulating of interactive “Force Opportunities”, which will be placed throughout the land, allowing guests to levitate certain objects at different times of the day.
The only drawback to Star Wars land is that Hollywood Studios went ahead and removed the infamous Earffel Tower (the symbol for the previous MGM Studios) from the park to make room. The end of one era will ultimately usher in the beginning of the next.
