"Star Wars" is coming to Disney World. Disney CEO Bob Iger announced Saturday that "Star Wars" is getting its own lands at both Walt Disney World and Disney Land, according to the New York Daily News.
The news was revealed at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. this weekend, according to The Washington Post.
Each land will be over 14 acres each, becoming Disney's largest single themed land expansion ever, IGN reported.
"I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars. We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet, including an epic Star Wars adventure that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance," he said in a statement.
The move has been in the works for three years now, ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm Ltd. in 2012, The Washington Post reported. The franchise will continue to grow later this year when "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" hits theatres.
There is no word yet on when the new parks will be completed.
