Today, we’re unveiling a stunning new image from Walt Disney Imagineering that shows just how amazing the Star Wars-themed land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla., will look once the sun goes down.

As you can see, the land will take on a whole new dimension after dark and feature adventures and surprises around each corner. If you look close, the image reveals a peek at what you’ll discover in this all-new land located in the southwest corner of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including one of the signature attractions that lets you take the controls of the Millennium Falcon.

We’re also excited to share an update that work is already underway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., to bring the stories from a galaxy, far, far away to life in the parks.

Star Tours - the Adventures Continue

During a D23: Destination D presentation today, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek also shared that – for the first time – we are adding a new adventure to the Star Tours – the Adventures Continue attraction. Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm teams are currently in production to add an exciting new mission to the attraction based on elements from Star Wars Episode VIII.

There will be more to share on Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts as well as Star Tours in the future. Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for updates.


  • When is the new Star Wars Land going to open?

  • Is there an exact date when it will be open to the public?

  • Star Tours will be around until SWL opens and Disney decides what Tomorrow Land will be. The Falcon ride is a Sim. Disney will not keep a SW ride outside SWL. I don’t think. I have heard rumors about big changes in tomorrow land. I’m at Disney several times a month. Love it. So many great thing happening. Funny the new parking and main entrance bridge, have me all geeked up.

  • I do hope that they have cleverly imagineared clever places to park strollers and EVCs. All the hard work to create atmosphere is lost when you have to look at a sea of parked strollers.

  • Star Tours will still be around, I’m wondering if they’ll be moving it to SWL. They could replace the attraction in TL with the Iron Man experience. Same general idea mechanically.

  • Kenneth, didn’t you just read they were adding at least one, but hopefully more than 1 scene, to Star Tours? They’ve been adding sces from star wars 1,2,3, 7 into the ride. So that ride will be around indefinitely.

  • I can’t wait for this to open and hopefully it won’t take too long to open!

  • Eeeeck best expansion yet!

  • Will Star Tours still be around when the new Star Wars Land opens?
