Disneyland has unveiled new concept art for its eagerly anticipated “Star Wars”-themed land.
Featuring an X-wing, the Millennium Falcon and an assortment of buildings, markets and rock formations, the image will make its official debut today on the fence of Big Thunder Trail in Frontierland, which will serve as one of the entry points to the 14-acre area.
The new art arrives about three months after Disney broke ground on the “Star Wars” areas at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.
The largest-ever single-themed land expansions at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, the “Star Wars” areas will feature as their centerpiece a Millennium Falcon attraction in which visitors can “actually pilot the fastest ship in the galaxy,” and another that places guests in the midst of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order “in a race against time.” Other attractions will include a street market, a cantina and an upscale dinner club.
Those, of course, are only the elements announced by Disney. However, one intriguing rumor has indicated that interactive “Force Opportunities” will be scattered around the lands, allowing visitors to “levitate” objects at certain times of the day.
Disneyland closed several Frontierland attractions in early January to make way for construction of Star Wars land. Disney’s Hollywood Studios likewise shut down numerous attractions on April 2, and removed the iconic Earffel Tower.
No opening date has been announced for either “Star Wars”-themed land.
