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. Disney '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. ENTERTAIN THIS!
