In honor of Disney’s sixty-year-anniversary, an idea was born. And, this idea has just taken off, and seems like it will be magnificent! It’s Disney’s newest theme park, Star Wars Land, located both in Anaheim, California and Orlando, Florida.
Thankfully, due to Disney’s latest film’s ‘astonishing’ success, Disney Imagineers and Lucasfilm luminaries have expanded the original layout. Now! The park will have three, not two, rides, plus, a tooonnn more, apparently. 🙂
‘Star Wars Land will be more of an immersive experience than ride, according to Mashable. It will all take place at an “outpost” planet that doesn’t exist yet in the Star Wars universe and is located “somewhere on the Outer Rim — lying on the edge of the Unknown Regions.” ‘
Disney Parks Blog does a great job on the backstory:
“The remote village was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer less attention, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order.”
LucasFilm and Disney Parks have yet to disclose the name of the Outer Rim planet, but wanted to point out that park attendees will be asked to choose between good versus evil by working for either the Resistance or choosing the dark side with the First Order.
Where are all my Star Wars’ fans,
Do you have to go back and watch ’em again, like I? 😛
