Star Wars Disneyland and Disney World will be the theme park's largest-ever single-themed expansions, featuring 14 acres of land each and a new Millennium Falcon ride.
The cult George Lucas film series has been getting a lot of extra attention lately with the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens fast approaching. In response to the hype, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced the Star Wars Disneyland expansion at this year's D23 Expo, the annual fan conference for devoted Disney lovers. The outer space expansion will be added to both the Disneyland park in Anaheim, California and the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Star Wars Disneyland will allow visitors to interact with beloved Star Wars characters in a recreated Star Wars universe. The themed area will also house an immersive visitor participation experience and a new ride where visitors to Star Wars Disneyland will get to drive the Millennium Falcon.
