With Star Wars Episode VII coming out in the next two years, Disneyland is making some exciting changes (if you love Star Wars, of course).
Tomorrowland is getting a new Star Wars look featuring references from the old movies wells as well as specifics from the upcoming Episode VII. And that means there are a lot of people over at Disney with details about the new movie. Let the rumors begin!
According to this article, “The Imagineers assigned to the Star Wars Tomorrowland project have now been debriefed on the characters and plotlines coming for Star Wars Episode VII that opens in theaters in about two years. The original plan for Disneyland’s Tomorrowland relied heavily on characters and plot points from the first three Star Wars films, with attractions like a Millenium Falcon walk-thru on the old PeopleMover platform, a wild Tatooine cantina replacing Tomorrowland Terrace, and a speeder bike ride through an Ewok village where Autopia currently sits. Those key attractions are all still part of phase two, but they are being layered or tweaked to include references from Episode VII that will be released in theaters at least 18 months before any of those attractions open.”
So basically, it's going to be about 4 years before the new Tomorrowland is ready.
Until then, enjoy the anticipation with these funny clips from Jimmy Kimmel.
