ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Characters from some of the biggest movies including “Star Wars,” ”Toy Story,” and “Avatar” are coming to Disney theme parks.
Disney officials announced Saturday that “Star Wars” is getting its own themed lands at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The 14-acre attractions represent the largest single themed land expansion ever.
Disney will also be adding the interactive Star Wars Launch Bay and introducing a new seasonal event, Season of the Force, which will update Space Mountain to become Hyperspace Mountain where guests will participate in an X-Wing battle.
Toy Story Land is planned for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, featuring exaggeratedly large objects to make guests feel as though they are actually in Andy’s backyard.
The World of AVATAR is currently under construction at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
