Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed on the quarterly investor earnings call Tuesday that both versions of Star Wars Land, one each at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, will open in 2019. Star Wars Land was announced as "a 14 acre themed area that will transport fans to a galaxy far, far away." The lands will include cast members as aliens, interactive droids, a lifesize Millennium Falcon, alien-looking buildings and locales, and brand-new Star Wars rides.
"Our intent is to make it feel as if you've just walked into one of the movies," Imagineering executive Scott Trowbridge said of the parks. "Bringing Star Wars to life in the physical world gives us the opportunity to play with a whole bunch of things we've never done before, to really engage all of the senses."
Looking forward to engaging the sense of smell with the interactive tauntaun ride. Before Star Wars Land, Pandora: World of Avatar will open at Disney World this May.
