Disney to build two 14 acre Star Wars parks

sw tp

(From Daily Mail) Disney has announced plans to build an enormous Star Wars land marking the biggest expansion in the theme park’s history.

It will consist of two 14-acre parks – one in California’s Disneyland and the other in Florida’s Disney World – with advanced sensor features to give visitors an ‘immersive’ experience.

In one, fans of the franchise will be able to board the Millennium Falcon to head up a ‘secret mission’.

In the other, visitors will be put in the middle of an ‘epic’ battle between the Resistance and the New Order – a war plucked from the soon-to-be-released Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

‘I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,’ Disney chairman Bob Iger told an audience at the firm’s D23 Expo.

Iger revealed the parks will depict a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port, and one of the last stops before wild space.

Everyone on site will be in character.

A date has not been set for the opening of the new parks.
