New Details Revealed for Disney's Star Wars Land Theme Parks

EA has released the first official trailer for the sequel to Star Wars Battlefront.

Discussing the Star Wars parks when they were first announced, Iger said: "These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet".

But none of this would be possible or have real meaning without the fans who came — more than 70,000 of you, making this the biggest and most widely-attended Star Wars Celebration in our history.

Taking the opportunity to play matchmaker, ABC News reports that the organizers of Star Wars Celebration Orlando chose to offer fans "Nerd Nite Speed Dating".

Get ready to travel to a galaxy far far away when the Star Wars park expansions make their debut at Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland in 2019.

Alongside the new teaser video, Disney has also shared some details about a "remote village" that will form part of the parks.

Lucasfilm said at the event, "We wanted to create a campaign that told a story we haven't seen before in Star Wars", Motive game director Mark Thompson said in a statement.

"This used to be a vibrant trading port back in the old sub-light-speed days, but now with the advent of hyperspace it's prominence has fallen and faded a little bit".

Battlefront 2 also adds new characters from other Star Wars films into the mix, as we see glimpses of Kylo Ren, Darth Maul, Yoda and Rey.

One of the most ambitious expansions of the Disney parks to date, the Star Wars attraction has been in the works for years now - nearly from the moment Lucasfilm and the Star Wars properties were acquired by Disney in 2012. If it actually inspires new ideas, then we'll probably head in that direction.

"When [Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO] Bob Iger first mentioned that Parks and Resorts were working on a Star Wars idea or a concept, he used the word 'ambitious, '" Beatty said.
