D23: Star Wars Land Is Revealed And It Is Glorious And Huge
D23 starts tomorrow, but we already have the first look at one of the most anticipated reveals of the convention: Star Wars Land. Since announced and through some construction site photos, we have gotten a sense of what to expect. Now, we have a concrete look. This model of the Star Wars part of the part will greet people who are in attendance this weekend right up front in "A Galaxy of Stories" pavilion.
Han Solo's beloved Millennium Falcon is still "the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy" and one of the most iconic ships in cinematic history. And in 2019, the "ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs" throws open its bay doors, finally giving fans a chance to step aboard. You will be able to get an up-close look inside the ship that Princess Leia famously proclaimed a "bucket of bolts" when Disney opens two 14-acre Star Wars-themed lands—one at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and the other at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
I can't believe this is going to be a reality. Not only will you get to board the Falcon, but the park itself is MASSIVE.
Here is a reveal video of the full-scale model thanks to Inside The Magic:
And we also have a look at what the First Order ride vehicle will look like thanks to them as well:
Basically: if you have been as excited for all of this as much as I have, this weekend looks to be really special. The land of our dreams is here Star Wars fans! Now if only we can get tickets in the first 10 years it is open…
Keep is locked here at BC all weekend for TONS of D23 news and coverage, including everything we can find about the Star Wars Land reveals!
UPDATED: You can see the whole booth in this video tour from Inside the Magic.
