Rumor: Possible Disney Star Wars land details

Vader at Disneyland. Or Disney World? I can't tell. Following up last week’s initial report that an expanded Star Wars area at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios is in the works, Comic Book Movie is claiming to have some details… And they’re a bit underwhelming, though certainly happy news to those of you with kids. CBM’s source says that they’ll be moving the Jedi Training Academy indoors and adding a ride for younger children.

No restaurant, no museum, no older-skewing ride aside from the existing Star Tours… At least not yet. Maybe these are simply the only plans that have been approved so far? It’s early yet, and this is only a rumor, so I wouldn’t put much stock in it just yet. Hopefully we will see more of a spread if/when any of this is ever announced officially.

  1. Whatever they do, I hope it sets up an area with a lot of room for improvements. They’re about to double the amount of films we have for the most part, hopefully they can accommodate that as well.

    I live near Disneyland and have an annual pass. I hope they do something there as well.

  2. Yeah, I’m with you. I just have a hard time envisioning that this is all Disney plans to do with the Star Wars brand in their parks. Especially when they’re devoting a huge chunk of resources to an Avatar land of all things.

  3. I hope they put in something a little older. There are just as many, or more, adult Star Wars fans out there. And the adults are the ones with jobs, the ones who make their own money.

  4. I think that the important thing to remember here is that Disney parks are always changing and expanding. This initial assessment (if true) could very likely only refer to the first stage of a larger project. The earlier and easier parts–such as adapting an existing attraction–of an endeavor that the company knows will take many years to develop and complete. They’ve got to get something quick out the door that they can test reception with, after all.
