Welcome To Disneyland’s “Star Wars”!
OK, fans of Disneyland AND “Star Wars”, today is your big day!
The internet just broke a bit more as Disney unveiled a vision of their new “Star Wars” area at Disneyland! This is the image that was released, showing how the park will look when it is finished:
This image was the latest released by Disney to show off what is now under construction at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
According to “deadline.com”:
“crews already have cleared the land on the site that once was Big Thunder Central, prepping the area for attractions that will include getting behind the controls of the Millennium Falcon via VR and more. The 14-acre project will be the largest “land” at Disney’s Orange County hub, and this artist’s rendering hints at what’s in store. The Rivers of America that were traversed by the now-docked Mark Twain Riverboat and the sailing ship Columbia will line one side of the Star Wars site.”
There is SO much fan fervor for this new area at Disneyland, although some Disney purists are concerned about the areas that were taken down to make room for the new area. I understand, being a lifelong fan of the park, but I understand that change is necessary at times…Disneyland fans are hoping that the park shows respect for the past as they blast off into the future…
Still, the new “Star Wars” area is going to be a HUGE boost to Disneyland’s popularity, and I for one cannot wait to see this come to sci-fi life, especially if there is a VR component, plus what we can assume will be great new thrill rides!

When I ran programming at G4, we had the first-ever coverage of a Comic-Con panel – which happened to be for a “Star Wars” project, and of course, our Host Olivia Munn was ready for action:
Olivia’s “Slave Leia” outfit also broke the internet, as well as fan boy hearts around the world…and we shot a bunch of fun stuff with her as well, which you can see here:
While George Lucas is no longer involved in the “Star Wars” franchise, you may be interested to know how he came up with the concept…and it all started with this guy:

I am not a theme park person. (I have never been to one) However, the Star Wars exhibit is bound to attract a huge interest. Talking of Flash Gordon, I am sure you will have seen this.
And it stars Candy Samples!
Best wishes, Pete.
