Star Wars Land … Our New Hope


I think by now every Star Wars fan has their lightsaber packed and ready following the rumours of Star Wars Land. Disney Worlds Hollywood Studios Florida is set to be our new favorite Universe. With whispers of Star Wars Land opening in 2018 or even earlier in 2017. An expansion of the Star Tours Universe, Star Wars Land is set for more rides, Characters, Stores and even it’s own Cantina!!
So pack your lightsabers, grab your pet Ewok and put on your R2D2 Mickey Mouse Ears, we are going on a holiday that is out of this universe.
So what would you all pack for Star Wars Land? Here’s our must haves an R2D2 suit case, Lightsaber, Star Wars travel mug,
a magic tell the future Yoda (a must have for any trip), Star Wars themed Clothing, a Wookie Jacket, a Lando Calrissian Disguise (in case you run into any rebel scum) a Lightsaber tooth brush, R2D2 Mickey Mouse Ears, and the coolest travel companion anyone could have a Pet Ewok!!
Imagine the joy of what Star Wars Land could bring; eating snow cones with a Wampa, kiss a wookie, play in a giant Ewok tree house, drinking with rebel scum in Mos Eisleys Cantina or even ride a Taun Taun…. Yes they really do smell bad on the outside.
This got me thinking about what attractions Star Wars Land could offer. The options are endless … the force is strong with this theme park!
The other exciting avenue the park will explore is that of how pop culture influences modern architecture. We know Disney spare no expense when developing their theme parks and attractions. We have seen architects conceptualise structures such as Hobbiton, and Hogwart’s (Alnwick Castle),  bringing to life all our favourite pop culture icons. The team of Imagineers would have a blast creating Star Wars Land. From the Middle Eastern structures of Tatooine to the Jawa Sandcrawler, which has already inspired the George Lucas Studios in Singapore.
