During a Walt Disney Company Shareholders meeting today, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that Star Wars-themed lands at Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida will be opening in 2019.
These lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.
Inside the lands, guests will be able to step aboard The Millennium Falcon and actually pilot the fastest ship in the galaxy, steering the vessel through space, firing the laser cannons, in complete control of the experience. And with the arrival of the First Order to the planet, guests will find themselves in the middle of a tense battle between stormtroopers and Resistance fighters.
Take a look at our video below of the construction progress for Florida’s land back in August 2016:
