Episode VIII adventure coming to Star Tours and a new look at Star Wars Land

The Disney Parks Blog has updated today with a new concept drawing of Star Wars Land at night! The image shows the Star Wars-themed land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, but you can imagine it will look similar at Disneyland in Anaheim as well.

As you can see, the land will take on a whole new dimension after dark and feature adventures and surprises around each corner.  If you look close, the image reveals a peek at what you’ll discover in this all-new land located in the southwest corner of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including one of the signature attractions that lets you take the controls of the Millennium Falcon.

Additionally the update says hit attraction, Star Tours: The Adventure Continues will be getting a Star Wars: Episode VIII update!

During a D23: Destination D presentation today, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek also shared that – for the first time – we are adding a new adventure to the Star Tours – the Adventure Continues attraction. Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm teams are currently in production to add an exciting new mission to the attraction based on elements from Star Wars Episode 8.

I’m a huge fan of Star Tours and this is really exciting news. I really hope the location we’ll be visiting with Star Tours is the Dubrovnik space casino location!
