Big things are coming for Star Wars at the Disney Parks. We know that a dedicated Star Wars Land theme park will be opening at Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida in the not too distant future, but it seems we can also expect updates to the current Star Wars attraction, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, before that!
Our friends at MakingStarWars.net are reporting that at least three new planets are being developed for Star Tours based on The Force Awakens and Episode VIII and that we can expect an attraction based on this year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the upcoming Star Wars Land. According to MSW,
- Takodana and Starkiller Base are being added to the ride before we get “Star Wars Land” opening. That’s not really earth shattering news but there you have it.
- An Episode VIII “sequence” is being planned as the capstone to these new Star Tours additions (for now).
- Sources say Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will have a dedicated attraction in “Star Wars Land” but don’t rule out Rogue One for Star Tours just yet.
- We can expect a “Star Wars Land” preview in the parks as well.
One thing is certain, exciting times lie ahead for Star Wars fans at the Disney Parks.
