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!
