Construction on Disney Parks Star Wars Themed Lands to Begin in 2016.

The Hollywood Reporter has a new update on the upcoming Star Wars-themed lands in both California’s Disneyland and Florida’s Disneyworld.

Disney COO Tom Staggs had this to say about the project:

He announced that construction of new lands based on Star Wars would start next year in both California and Florida, but still would not say when the attractions might actually open to the public.

He called the initiatives the biggest “single-theme” improvements at the parks in their history, reiterating that guests will be able to visit the bizarre cantina featured in the original film and fly Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon.

Of the upcoming Star Wars movies, he promised they’d appeal to fans and newcomers, alike, then added: “I think it will be something China will embrace in a big way.”

This is really exciting. I’m grateful there won’t be too much of a delay in construction.
