‘Star Wars’ Non-News: Theme Park plans coming soonz!!!
I went to Harry Potter World last month in Orlando. It was fucking awesome. Staggering around Diagon Alley was like, straight-up existing in a magical world. And I wasn’t HIGH. It was THAT CONVINCING. But all I could think while I was there, of course, was “Man, I need a Star Wars experience like this.”
The last we heard from Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, was plans were held up a bit because they wanted the new Star Wars attractions to focus more on the new movies. And those movies weren’t quite ready yet. But in an interview Tuesday, Iger said he feels Disney will be able to announce those plans to the public “fairly soon” and that the plans are “ambitious.” Read more about the Disney Star Wars theme parks below.
Variety reported on the Disney Star Wars theme park news. First up, in an investors call, Bob Iger said the following:
There’s “a fair amount of design and development (taking place by the company’s Imagineers) to greatly increase ‘Star Wars” presence in multiple locations around the world….The plans are ambitious so it’s going to take some time for them to be built and opened.”
Big plans take time, that makes sense, but when will fans know about them? He expanded a bit talking to Bloomberg:
Fairly soon, I’m sure we’ll be ready to go public with some specifics. But it’s safe to say that you’ll see a lot more ‘Star Wars’ at Disney and at Disney parks in the near future.
Come on, Iger. Stop fucking around. Give me this, already.
