Get a First Look at Disneyland's New Star Wars Land
Three months after Disney began construction at the Disneyland park in Anaheim, fans are getting a sneak peek of what they can expect from the upcoming Star Wars Land.
Disney unveiled an image of the fence along Big Thunder Trail, in Frontierland, which will be one of the entrances to a “never-before-seen planet” in the Star Wars galaxy, according to the company.
“Nestled between towering spires of rock, this thriving port contains a seemingly familiar architecture of markets, landing zones and buildings,” according to a Disney blog post. “Look closely and you may find hints of some of the thrilling experiences that are coming – like the Millennium Falcon peeking out of one of the cargo bays, marking the location where guests will get the opportunity to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.”
This will be the largest single-themed expansion at Anaheim's Disneyland Resort. A Star Wars-themed land is also coming to the Orlando park.
“I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Bob Iger, Walt Disney Company chairman and CEO, at the D23 EXPO last year. “These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”
