A Star Wars-themed land at Walt Disney World is still a few years away, but there are a few new Star Wars experiences that will debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in December.
Star Wars Launch Bay will take guests into the Star Wars saga and the upcoming film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with special exhibits and peeks behind-the-scenes, special merchandise and opportunities to encounter Chewbacca and Darth Vader.
The park’s popular Jedi training experience has been reimagined as Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, which will open in early December. It will take younglings to the secret site of an ancient Jedi temple where they will face Darth Vader along with the Seventh Sister – a new villain from the Disney XD series “Star Wars Rebels.”
Finally, the Star Tours attraction will be updated with a new adventure inspired by the upcoming film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. During the opening months, everyone who rides Star Tours will experience the new adventure. After that, it will be up to the will of the Force as to when it will randomly appear.
This helps to make up for the sad news that the park will no longer host Star Wars Weekends. And it should hold over fans until the Star Wars-themed land opens in a few years – construction begins next year on this.
