Watch a Preview for Disneyland's Huge New 'Star Wars' Area


Both Disneyland and Disney World have a dedicated Star Wars Land on the way, and now we've finally got a look. On Sunday night's ABC special The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60, Millennium Falcon captain Harrison Ford introduced the preview. We've now been promised a Star Wars–y marketplace, restaurant and cantina, as well as a Falcon ride where you'll be able to fire the ship's cannons like a jubilant and stressed Luke and/or Finn. Expect to "enter these authentic locales with your every sense engaged."

The revealing preview begins at the 1:20 mark in the video below:

Slashfilm has a bunch of concept art images for you, too. The new Star Wars areas will span 14 acres apiece. Opening dates have not yet been announced, although Disneyland began closing rides, attractions and restaurants in January.
