Star Wars: A Preview

If you want to know more about the upcoming Star Wars, the best advice might be to wait patiently for it.

The Star Wars movie, yes, a wait.

And the Star Wars land — an even longer wait.

But we can tell you a little about the new Disney Star Wars Land attraction. And a little more than that about the film…if you can bear with us for a while.
This is a preview of both.

Details about the upcoming Star Wars are few, as you know.

How scarce are they?

About as scarce as water in a far-from-earth dry planet drought, is one way to put it.

Details of the all-new Star Wars-themed lands coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts are just about as meager.

Everyone wants to know what it will look like. But even details of exactly when it will open are not speculated or announced by Disney.

Everyone has a guess as to why. But perhaps the simplest answer is to build anticipation. And demand as well.

In mid-August, Disney announced that it will build Star Wars-themed areas at two of its parks, Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.

The known factors

We know that at 14 acres each, the Star Wars lands will feature two signature attractions.

These include a ride based on the starship Millennium Falcon from the earliest Star Wars releases.

The second major attraction is an experience that places visitors in a space battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

Disney Wlorld has not announced an opening date, though construction will begin in 2016.

Best guesses for opening are 2017 at the earliest or more likely, the fallowing year or two.
