Disney has finally revealed the first look of its Star Wars land at Walt Disney Co.’s Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts.
The Star Wars-inspired land is currently under construction in California and Florida. A detailed 3D-model was unveiled at 2017 D23 Expo in Anaheim. The detailed 3D model showcased the exteriors of two main attractions, as well as rugged terrain filled with earthen-colored buildings, a restaurant that resembles the Mos Eisley cantina, X-Wings and of course, a copy of the Millennium Falcon.
The inspired attractions are due to open in 2019 at Disneyland in Anaheim, and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Disney World in Orlando.
The themed attraction is based on the never-seen-before planet, the company said in a blog post. There will be two main attraction in the Star Wars-inspired land: one will give the visitors a chance to captain the Millenium Falcon on a secret mission, and the other one will put the rider amid the battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
“This is the most ambitious land we’ve built to date,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney’s parks division at the unveiling.
“As you move through the areas, you might be recruited to join one side or the other,” he said. “Are you a spy? Are you part of the Resistance or willing to join the First Order? It’s up to you. And your role inside of that will be defined by how you choose,” Scott Mallwitz, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, told the Orange County Register.
According to Bloomberg, Star Wars-themed land will cost around $1 Billion each.
