Last night during the two hour special celebrating the 60th anniversary of Disneyland viewers got their first glimpse at the most anticipated expansion coming to the theme park, Star Wars Land. The new 14 acre park coming to both Disneyland and Disney World will take visitors to a galaxy, far, far away that is, for some a stone throws away from their own doorstep. From the 8 minute presentation that focused on the new theme land, Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, shared with everyone the two new rides people will get to take part in, including jumping into the cockpit of perhaps the most famous spaceship in space, the Millennium Falcon.
New opening date has been announced for the new expansion but many hope that we will get to walk in Luke, Han, Chewie, Leia and the others famous footsteps in time for Star Wars: Episode IX in 2019.
You can see all the goodness coming to the the parks at the video:
