People can't stop talking about Star Wars The Force Awakens it seems, including Disney CEO Bob Iger. According to him, all Disney Resorts will have a much greater Star Wars "presence". But what can we expect?
"I didn't want someone to say, 'I just saw the movie and there's nothing in that movie in this (attraction)," Iger said. "We waited to see what this film would have in it." Therefore, it seems like these new areas or perhaps simply rides would appear to be focused purely on the new films set to be released.
Iger has stopped early development on theme park attractions at Imagineering. "We couldn't tell them what was new," Iger said, until Abrams was finished developing and producing the sequel. "I slowed it all down so what we come forward with will have a blend of the past, present and maybe the future," referencing upcoming sequels and spinoff films. "Now we have a sense of what's in 'Star Wars 8,' and what some of the standalone films will have in them." Firstly, it is rather exciting to think that they already have a vision in place for the sequel to the highly anticipate Force Awakens. It is also nice to see that Disney are not rushing any of the Star Wars production and are putting every effort in to provide an experience both in and outside of the theatre.
With Star Tours 2 having opened in recent years in Disney World Florida, and set to open up in other Disney Parks around the globe in the coming years, perhaps we can expect a blend of classic Star Wars and new Star Wars rides? Personally, I'm hoping to be able to dine at the Mos Eisley Cantina!
