Look Inside Disney's New Star Wars Land

Look Inside Disney's New Star Wars Land

For more than 60-years, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts have been making dreams come true, by creating new kinds of entertainment that families can enjoy and experience together. Previously, glimpses of "Star Wars" land had been limited to a few generic-looking renderings and a brief video of the construction.

"To say we are excited for the Star Wars-themed lands to open in 2019 is an understatement", said Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

Nestled within this town are two main attractions.

The lands in Anaheim and Orlando, which are expected to cost $1 billion each, are slated to open in 2019. Star Wars has one of the largest fanbases on the planet, and to bring the new Star Wars land to Disney will bring many Disney and/or Star Wars fans together to one of the happiest places on earth.

If you a person who likes visiting amusement parks, particularly ones on the other side of the world, who also has a minor/major/debilitating obsession with 'Star Wars', we might just have something that neatly intersects your two very particular interests. "I mean, even the way you choose enter this part of the park will have an impact on your adventure".

German police make arrests over €4m gold coin heist
Police believe the thieves broke into the museum from an elevated section of tram tracks, using a ladder to enter undetected. The commemorative coin was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007 and features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.

Here you'll encounter a thriving spaceport with multiple landing pads.

So guests will actually get to pilot the Millennium Falcon, which has been a fantasy at some point for every Star Wars fan. In one, guests will be able to take control of the Millennium Falcon and go on a "customized secret mission".

D23 is the official Disney fan club.

"As (with) any thriving spaceport, you're going to feel, smell, taste, touch what it feels like in a "Star Wars" environment", Scott Mallwitz, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, said.

D23 covers numerous various business elements of Walt Disney Co., including films and television production.
