According to a report by Theme Park Insider, Disney Land will soon include “Star Wars Land.”
It will be part of a larger expansion of the California theme park, which will also include a “Cars Land,” dedicated to Pixar’s series of animated films.
From what I’ve heard, it appears that the [Star Wars] expansion would take out the area between Star Tours and the auto stunt show stadium, including the Muppet theater and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids play area. But I’ve also heard of consideration of going in the opposite direction, which would place the new land on the site of the Backlot Express restaurant and Indiana Jones stunt show theater. Given that the Indy theater’s used for several other events throughout the year, and that both the Muppets and Honey I Shrunk the Kids attractions long ago passed the height of their popularity, I’m hearing more forceful arguments for the first option.
The current plan, according to the report, is for the expansion to be completed in 2018.
