Ready for Star Wars Land?
Jun. 14, 2013
We knew that when Disney bought Lucasfilm there would be great things ahead. Okay, there would be a lot of great possibilities ahead. I cannot remark on the greatness of all ideas.
One idea that came along before Disney made the hugest deal of all time was a STAR WARS theme park. It's said that The Walt Disney Company decided to dump $1 billion into giving Disney's Hollywood Studios at Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida a make-over. It's been revealed from sources close to themeparkinsider.com that Star Wars Land is coming. Here are some details on the location within the park which will take at least 5 years to get up and going:
"The logical places for that expansion would be on either side of the existing Star Tours ride. From what I've heard, it appears that the expansion would take out the area between Star Tours and the auto stunt show stadium, including the Muppet theater and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids play area. But I've also heard of consideration of going in the opposite direction, which would place the new land on the site of the Backlot Express restaurant and Indiana Jones stunt show theater. Given that the Indy theater's used for several other events throughout the year, and that both the Muppets and Honey I Shrunk the Kids attractions long ago passed the height of their popularity, I'm hearing more forceful arguments for the first option."
Then there was more news from TheForce.net:
"Expect to see new levels added to Star Tours and some more interactive attractions, possibly an additional ride," my Disney source said. However, my source added that "most of the expansion will be environments and character meet-and-greet areas."
There are also plans to build a Mos Eisley Cantina. Will we meet and shoot Greedo first there? What do you want from Star Wars Land?
