Disney Unveils Stunning Model of Star Wars Theme Land

These photos show what it's like to be at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim

Well, I hope this model shows that the Imagineers really embraced that challenge.

Various droids and alien characters will inhabit Star Wars Land to greet guests.

At the event, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek referred to the lands (there's one in Disney World, and one in Disneyland, Anaheim) as "immersive new worlds". The unveiling came at the D23 expo, now being held in Anaheim, California, where the models are on display through the weekend.

Nestled within this town are two main attractions. Due to open sometime in 2019, the expansions plan on immersing guests in a galaxy far, far away like never before. One includes the Millennium Falcon, and the other puts visitors in the battle between the First Order and the Resistance, which are both groups seen in the recent "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

A Star Wars-themed land is being built at Walt Disney Co.'s Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts.

Froome soon returned to the favourites before forcing a selection with Porte as the pair exchanged a volley of accelerations. Although the group went with Aru, they neutralised the Astana rider, and allowed Froome to get back into the group.

"Our intent is to make it feel as if you just walked into one of the movies..." Construction at both parks began in 2016 and the lands are expected to open in 2019.

To give an example, Trowbridge told the website that a bartender at the cantina may mention a bad performance on the Millennium Falcon after someone goes on the ride.

Statistic Brain estimates that the total Star Wars Franchise Revenue is approximately 27 billion dollars - a number not to be taken lightly.

The bulbous, mushroom-shaped buildings and scrap metal aesthetic (very postmodern) is reminiscent of the set pieces seen in the original trilogy, as well as the more recent films released by Disney. First Order flags to the right of the entrance and more "earth toned" flag to the left may indicate that "split" where guests will choose their allegiance.
