Yes! A 'Star Wars' theme park could soon be a reality

By ⋅ Posted on

When Disney bought LucasFilm last year for $700 gazillion, they were getting much more than just a wildly popular movie series. They were buying into a Star Wars universe rich in history; it was an investment into a cultural phenomenon. The first order of business for the House of Mouse was to announce Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens's arrival in 2015 and now they are looking to exploit its marketing potential and develop a Star Wars theme park.

Selected Annual Pass holders for Disney parks have been asked to fill out a survey with the question "How interested would you be in visiting a Star Wars themed land at the Disneyland Resort?", and although it's by no means a confirmation that building work on the resort is about to begin, it does show that Disney is giving serious thought to the merits of such a park.

Check out these tweets of a couple of the survey questions:

My inner Star Wars fanboy just got very excited.

So what would Star Wars Land look like? That's where you come in. Let me know what attractions you would like to see included and drop your suggestions in the comments section below. I'd like to have some sort of Pod-race simulator and maybe a ride where you get thrown into a Sarlacc pit. Oh, and definitely an attraction where you get to shoot Jar-Jar Binks repeatedly in the face. That would be pretty satisfying.
