Take a Look and Get to Know Star Wars Land with Newly Released Concept Artby ZachPerilstein
On the Disneyland 60 special, Disney revealed some great concept art for the highly anticipated Star Wars Land. Star Wars Land will be opening at both Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida and in Anaheim, California. Disney Reporter Zach Perilstein breaks it all down for us. (All concept art will be featured below.)
Millennium Falcon Attraction
The new Millennium Falcon attraction will let you pilot and shoot blasters from the famous galactic pirate ship. This seems like a one of a kind adventure and it will probably be similar to Mission SPACE (an attraction at Walt Disney World, where you pilot a space shuttle to Mars and encounter different obstacles.) The attraction seems to be different from the Star Tours attraction which is already featured at Walt Disney World. It will allow you to become "Han Solo."
The First Order Attraction
This attraction was described by CEO Bob Iger at D23 Expo back in August. "It will put you in the middle of a climatic battle between the Resistance and the First Order!" The attraction will be a race against time in the middle of an epic battle. This attraction will utilize all of Imagineering's (Disney Theme Parks Creative Force) latest technology and creativity. Scott Trowbridge is the creative force bringing this project to life for us fans. He has also worked on creating some of Universal's best rides (Harry Potter's Wizarding World, Amazing Spider-Man, and The Simpsons Ride). Some suggest this attraction will be a "better" version of the "Spider-Man" Ride at Universal Theme Parks. This attraction will make a Disney first in the United States, it will be the first Disney attraction to feature trackless vehicles! Other Disney Parks around the world have experienced it (Ratatouille: The Ride in Disneyland Paris and Mystic Manor at Hong Kong Disneyland to name some examples) The big deal about a trackless vehicle is it allows the vehicle to go in any direction (Backwards, Forward, Side to Side, and it can roam anywhere…) The Star Wars experience will be super immersive. This attraction is just one of few announced.
Experience the galaxy like you never have before. Star Wars Land will feature local inhabitants and will have the authentic Star Wars theme throughout. The Marketplace will host many different shops and food options. It will look like something straight out of the Star Wars Universe.
Sadly Mos Eisley Cantina will not be featured in Star Wars Land. None of the original planets are in the details for the new land. Walt Disney Imagineering is creating a new planet to explore. The restaurants though look exciting, one with live entertainment and the other with a cantina-like theme.
Get up close and personal with ships from the Rebel Alliance and The Empire. More attractions and experiences should be announced as the construction begins. The land feels like it will be a mix between the old and the new era of Star Wars.
I'm stoked to see Star Wars Land! Even though the concept art was released, Disney did not include an opening day or year for the massive project. Cultjer will follow all the happenings and news for "Star Wars Land."
