Disney’s latest behind the scenes peek at “Star Wars” land took place this week. The company presented a scale model of the much-vaunted attractions, currently under construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando and Disneyland in California, to attendees of the D23 Expo, a gathering of the official worldwide Disney fan club.
Included in an official video provided a the convention, are some very familiar features to Star Wars fans, most notably the Millennium Falcon spacecraft the preferred transportation of one Han Solo.
“To say we are excited for the ‘Star Wars’-themed lands to open in 2019 is an understatement,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts. “All along, we have said this will be game-changing, and through the mode l we can begin to see how truly epic these immersive new worlds will be.”
Two attractions had already been announced for the “Star Wars” lands, which do not have official names yet. One puts visitors at the control of the Millennium Falcon, and the other puts them in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order.
According to Disney the setting for the new land will be a previously unknown planet, a trading outpost just before “Wild Space”.
The Star Wars lands are scheduled to open in both Disney theme parks in 2019.
