Disney To Add Star Wars To Their Theme Parks

Hey Thrill Seekers,

I’m not one to say “I told you so…” but….. “I told you so…” 🙂

Back in 2012 I wrote a piece just after Disney confirmed their purchase of Lucas Films (including Star Wars) about how I expected them to incorporate the massive franchise in to their parks.

Last night in Disney’s usual earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger stated Disney is

developing designs for a far greater ‘Star Wars’ presence in the parks, When we grow ‘Star Wars” presence, which we will do significantly, you will see better bets being made that will pay off for us than were made in the past,

As you can imagine the internet exploded…

Actual details of the planned expansion will not be announced until 2015 which coincides with the release of JJ Abrams new Star Wars film. However this hasn’t stopped the rumours from flying around from a dedicated land to a whole Star Wars park.

What we can look forward too is plenty of rumours, leaks and speculation. One thing I’m pretty sure about is that construction on such a massive project will be pretty hard to hide, so some major clues might not be too far away.

Smiles included…
