Disney Offers Update on Star Wars Land, Debuts Star Tours Video for Force Awakens

Disney offers Star Wars Land update for Hollywood Studios

Back in August, Disney confirmed plans for Star Wars Land for their Disneyland park in Anaheim, California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Now, an update has come about some of the Star Wars-related attractions and experiences fans will be able to enjoy at Hollywood Studios and when they begin.

First up will be the Star Wars Launch Bay, which will open on December 1 and features exhibits and peeks behind the scenes about the franchise, in addition to special merchandise and a chance to meet both Chewbacca and Darth Vader.

Furthermore, Star Tours – The Adventures Continue will be equipped with a brand-new section straight out of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be shown as part of every “Star Tours” ride that fans take in the opening months of the new film. You can check out a preview of what awaits you on the ride in the player below.

Finally, an updated version of Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple will open in early December, allowing attending “younglings” to take part in their own Jedi training and also face off against not only Darth Vader but the newly-introduced Star Wars Rebels villain The Seventh Sister.

Work officially begins on the 14-acre Star Wars Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios next year along with the Star Wars-themed land at Disneyland.
