The Disney Parks Blog says, “Guests will be able to step aboard The Millennium Falcon and actually pilot the fastest ship in the galaxy, steering the vessel through space, firing the laser cannons, in complete control of the experience. And with the arrival of the First Order to the planet, visitors will find themselves in the middle of a tense battle between stormtroopers and Resistance fighters.”
Harrison Ford, the actor who plays Han Solo, had this to say about the plans: “Star Wars is, for lack of a better word … awesome. I’m so blessed that I had the opportunity to be a part of it. To walk in these iconic locations. And soon, you’ll be able to do that as well. Not in a galaxy far, far away, but in a place close to home.”
The 14-acre expansions will be the largest to come to the Disney Theme Parks.
