If you have been living under a rock for the past year, you may have missed all the buzz about a little known movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It seems that this movie has broke all box office records and is even getting its own space at Disneyland in California and even in Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. Walt Disney World already has a small area dedicated to Star Wars but the latest additions will make this a huge land into itself.
Disney has been the waiting until the new movie release to make it’s big announcement about the addition, but who was going to make it was a secret until now. The only person I think who had the clout and also had 2 areas already at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was non other than Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford. Harrison already has the famous Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular show at the Studios and in the current Star Wars area of the park, so he will be making the big announcement about the newest addition.
He will be giving the latest conceptual ideas that Disney’s imagineers have come up with for the new Star Wars Land expansion. As of now, some of the ideas have been that you will be fully immersed in different worlds that the movie has taken place in as well as fan memorabilia to see that was in the actual movies. Think the Great Movie Ride meets Star Wars or even the Backlot Tour. All of this and more will be revealed to fans on Sunday’s showing of “The Wonderful World of Disney”, February 21st at 8-10 pm ET/PT on ABC.
Just think, you might be able to climb aboard the actual Millenium Falcon or fly with Luke Skywalker on a mission to destroy the Death Star. Disney’s Hollywood Studios already has a month that celebrates Star Wars and has special guests every weekend for 5 weeks during May and June. The new expansion is said to be 14 acres and all Star Wars. Just to put that in context, 14 acres is just as big as 10 football fields, so get your walking shoes ready! The current size of the Hollywood Studios Star Wars land is just the ride they have now, the small gift shop and the stage where you can see you favourite characters perform. It was time for more and it couldn’t have come sooner.
