    ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ever wanted to hang out in the sleazy cantina from Star Wars? Or itched to fight on the Millennium Falcon? Visualize it.

    Disney chairman Bob Iger announced the creation of two Star Wars theme lands coming to the Disney parks in Orlando and Anaheim, Calif. Iger made the announcement before a rabid crowd at the biennial Disney D23 Expo Saturday morning.

    'Star Wars'-themed lands are coming to Disney Parks.

    The concept received a rousing standing ovation from the 8,000 fans gathered.

    The parks will allow Star Wars fans to step into the stories and interact with the characters from a galaxy far, far away. They will be transported to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port filled with Star Wars characters.

    The plans to bring Star Wars to life in the two parks include creating Disney's largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14 acres each.

    "We are creating a jaw-dropping new world," said Iger. "We're bringing Star Wars to life in a big way. ...These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet.

    "Nothing in land will be out of character," added Iger, including the famed cantina. "You've never seen a cantina like this before."

    The locations will also allow guests to ride the Millennium Falcon in a "climactic battle."

    "Guests will truly become part of a Star Wars story," said Iger. "It's going to be a whole new level, a whole new galaxy."

    The news was even exciting to Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, who talked longingly about hanging out with droids and riding the Millennium Falcon.

    I will pretend this is gay and faggot


    but as someone who does enjoy both Disney and the Star Wars world there's a chance I'm actually quite excited over this

    Why build the cantina when they can build the super cool sports bar in Attack of the Clones? That's where you can buy some death sticks. Death sticks - lol.


    From the mind of George Lucas- "I am conveying that these are very bad things."

    Hollywood Studios is such a tiny park. I wouldn't mind this if they are planning to "expand" the park itself, but I suspect they are just going to go cheap and put this where the Indian Jones Stunt Show is. Big mistake. Anyone who's ever been to their Star Wars Weekends in May know that there are too many people framed in that shitty park. I guess I'll take a wait and see approach. It won't effect me much because I've got a lifetime pass and can go during the off season, but for the rest of the world -- Sucks being you.

    I used to really like honey i shrunk the audience so i may have been a tough critic. I was exhausted and fell asleep when i saw it. There are no effects besides some crappy 3d. As good as the first 3 star wars and indies were, george lucas is responsible for some real turds.

    That has to be the biggest rip-off theme park in existence, short of a Howard Stern land. I read about when it opened and it didn't really have any serious attractions. They just wanted another "gate" to be able to charge for. Since then it's added some pretty good rides but it's still small and probably crowded as hell in the peak times.

    The only "must see" would be the first. It was a good story.
