    Star Wars Land coming to Shanghai Disneyland

    According to Theme Park Insider, they have heard a rumor that the additional $800 million that was going to Shanghai Disneyland could be for a elaborate Star Wars Land. The Land would be ready for the grand opening of December 2015 and be ready in time for Star Wars Episode 7 to come out in theaters.

    Re: Star Wars Land coming to Shanghai Disneyland

    I wonder how popular Star Wars is in China?

    On the plus side, I wouldn't be surprised if they used this as another 'bulk buy' option and duplicate elements at other parks. There's already talk of a subland to Discoveryland and adding more to Disneyland's Tomorrowland, so I suppose if its a cheaper way of achieving it.

    Great article, Jeff!I wonder if the opening scroll for the next Star Wars movie will look something like this:
    A short time ago, in lands near and far away....

    It is a period of unprecedented construction in the theme park industry.
    Universal/Comcast theme parks, employing the magic of the boy wizard,
    conjure up a huge wad of cash and using the money to re-make themselves,
    win their first victory against the Sith beancounters of the Disney Empire.

    During the battle, rebel Imagineers defected to Universal and built IOA
    and transformed USF and USH while Disney’s best ideas went to Asia and
    Europe, and it is rumored that the ultimate franchise, Star Wars, beloved around
    the world, will be first built in mainland China instead of the United States.

    Realizing that not everybody who goes to theme parks pushes a stroller
    and wants to ride in a boat or an omnimover, CEO Robert Iger summons
    Jedi Imagineers Scott Trowbridge and Tom Fizgerald to Orlando
    via the Disney corporate jet in an attempt to revive the moribund Florida theme
    parks and restore respectability to Disney World.
    …… but will the dark side triumph?

    The saga continues……

    I like how in the article he said they could add Tatooine to the World Showcase at EPCOT by just dumping a few truckloads of sand. This is so true.

    Re: Star Wars Land coming to Shanghai Disneyland

    I'm going to be upfront... A friend of mine has a dad in the Disney company and he has shown the son around.. I won't say who he is but from what the son has told me... Do NOT expect it. I won't say who the dad is but he is a little known. Not lassiter but someone that has worked in that department.
    I'm working as i'm with my autobots.

    Even if it's not there at opening I could see a Star Wars land cropping up soon in most of the resorts. Like toy story Playland this could be an easily duplicated thing that's placed stateside and in the overseas parks to spread r&D

    Unfortunately Star Wars has already cropped up, and Star Tours will be the extent of any Star Wars land state side that will ever be seen. Star Wars Land will be the draw for Shanghai Disneyland.
