Disney Orlando to open Star Wars Land park section in 2019!

02.08.2017

In a time when it feels as if many things are uncertain, it’s nice to know that you can always count on the wonderment, magic, and passion of the Star Wars universe to act as a lighthouse in the fog of troubling times. We’ve known for a while now that Disney Orlando has been making preparations for a 14-acre Star Wars attraction to be added to their already massive and entertaining theme park, and just today, we’ve got some updated information that includes an opening date window!

That’s right, young padawans, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed on Tuesday that Star Wars Land will open in 2019, just in time to celebrate STAR WARS EPISODE IX, the final chapter in the “Skywalker Saga” series of films. Though its construction began last April, little is known about what will be involved in the attraction, including which characters will make their first appearance as a part of the interpersonal park populace. One thing that seems to be confirmed by the Disney Parks blog post, is that guests will be afforded the opportunity to “pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy” by climbing into the cockpit of a full-sized replica of the Millennium Falcon.

During that same phone call I’d mentioned above, you might be interested to hear that Iger has already viewed a cut of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (the follow-up sequel to STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS), and he’s pretty jazzed about what he’s seen thus far.

What do you all think? Can your Star Wars-loving heart handle the reality of walking a 14-acre entertainment space dedicated entirely to George Lucas’ ever-expanding space opera? What attractions do you expect to see? Will you stop for drinks at the Mos Eisley Cantina, or perhaps engage in a simulated battle with a Rancor? The sky is literally the limit with this bold endeavor, and I for one can’t wait to see what the House of Mouse rolls out in 2019 as a part of their big Star Wars celebration!

Also to note, Disney's "Pandora - The World of Avatar" is set to open on May 27, 2017 as a part of Disney World's Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.

Extra Tidbit: They should totally make a Jabba's Palace section of the park for adults. Think about it: Drinks, dancers, the real gritty Star Wars nightlife, yo.

They're building a Star Wars land in Anaheim as well. I'm betting at D23 this summer, we'll get a more specific date.

This has to be the stupidest opening sentence...

"In a time when it feels as if many things are uncertain, itís nice to know that you can always count on the wonderment, magic, and passion of the Star Wars universe to act as a lighthouse in the fog of troubling times." -- Really? Eye roll. --- Believe it or not I don't come to this site for politics. (Everything is going to be okay, little guy.)

We've known about this for a while. Disney's Hollywood Studios park is the one that has had the most trouble recently with number of guests. They are also building a Toy Story land.

"In a time when it feels as if many things are uncertain"... "lighthouse in the fog of troubling times". Don't project your insecurities in your blog posts. If you can't sleep at night due to normal world discourse, I don't want to read about it on a movie news site.

His insecurities are the insecurities that most people feel right now. Don't let your own insecurities about an objective opinion get your feathers ruffled.

No insecurities here. I'm comfortable with today's world. Its not the job of the poster to assume who is and who is not "troubled". As I mentioned, I don't want to read about how the poster feels on a movie blog. If he/she can't deal, then so be it, that's their problem, but don't let it invade the movie rumors website. Its childish.

Telecine Wobble you're 100% right. I'm here for movie news -- if I wanted to hear people projecting their insecurities, I'd hang out with protestors

A no-brainer, but still brilliant

This is gonna be so huge. I always thought Disney could've dedicated an entire park to this, call it "Disney's Star Wars Galaxy" or the like, but obviously there's not much land left in Bay Lake to build upon.

There goes my 2019.
