Disney Is Creating Two 'Star Wars' Theme Parks, And Life Is Complete
Chronic FOMO is getting harder to beat with each passing minute because "Star Wars" theme parks are set to become the next bi-coastal vacation destinations.
On Saturday, Disney representatives unveiled plans for two 14-acre theme parks that will fully immerse visitors in the "Star Wars" world(s).
Visual effects professional Adam Hlavac took to Twitter to give fans a preview of what is to come.
"Star Wars" fanatics who have long dreamt of flying in the Millennium Falcon or stopping off for a drink and some live entertainment at the Creature Cantina will finally get their chance, according to Disney CEO and chairman Bob Iger.
These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
The parks, which will be stationed on Disney's Orlando and Anaheim properties, coincide perfectly with the release of JJ Abrams' new "Star Wars" film, set to hit theaters in December.
Disney reps did not comment on whether lightsabers, proton torpedoes or electrostaffs will be allowed on park premises, but keep those fingers crossed.
