IN DEPTH: Star Wars themed land on full display for #D23Expo 2017
The D23 Expo 2017 is finally here and during a special early preview Thursday evening, we got the chance to check out the A GALAXY OF STORIES pavilion by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
The massive space includes a gigantic model of the yet-unnamed upcoming Star Wars themed land expansion that will be coming to both Disneyland Park in Anaheim, CA and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando. Aside from the nerdgasm-inducing diorama which is painfully action-figure ready–STEP AWAY FROM MY MINT 1979 BOBA FETT ACTION FIGURE–the exhibit also features tons of models, artwork, and media previewing what guests can expect to encounter starting in 2019. From new locations and starships to creatures and droids, there’s a lot to take in here!
We’ll have a more in depth look soon but for now enjoy this selection of highlights from the must-see new space exclusively at the D23 Expo!
The above photos were provided by Disney. Below is photos we took for a closer look. But first enjoy this video from our Twitter feed of a fly-over over the land!
