Disney Starts Work on Star Wars Land, Debuts First Glimpse

Disney officially broke ground Thursday at Disneyland on its “Star Wars”-themed attractions, which will also be installed at Hollywood Studios at Disney World, and the company celebrated the milestone by sharing a 360-degree video of the 14-acre space that Disneyland has designated for the project.

The footage, which is essentially a pan of a construction site, was digitally altered to include robots, X-wing fighters, walkers, androids and Stormtroopers.

“In these all-new lands, guests will be transported to a never-before-seen planet inhabited by humanoids, droids and many others,” read a post on the Disney Parks blog. “Star Wars-themed lands will be the largest ever single-themed land expansions at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.”

Disney first broke the news of the “Star Wars”-inspired installations last August.  In the initial announcement, Disney chief Bob Iger revealed that the expansion would include two signature attractions, including a ride where fans can operate the Millennium Falcon “on a customized secret mission,” and an experience that drops visitors into “a climactic battle between the First Order and the resistance.”

Disney has yet to release an opening date for the “Star Wars” attractions.
