    From Deadspin:

    That’s the end of the presentation everyone. Meh the force be with you, I guess.

    Ross A. Lincoln2 MINUTES AGO

    Ross A. Lincoln3 MINUTES AGO
    “The first time our guests can immerse themselves in the real physical world that is Star Wars”

    Ross A. Lincoln3 MINUTES AGO

    Ross A. Lincoln4 MINUTES AGO
    You’ll have a chance to run into all the droids and romaning beasts that Star Wars is known for.

    Ross A. Lincoln4 MINUTES AGO
    Every store and restuarant “will be operated by local inhabitants”. Nothing will be out of character or stray from mythology. There will be a cantina as well.

    Ross A. Lincoln5 MINUTES AGO
    Largest ever single themed land expansion ever, he’s saying. Certainly the largest single themed reason to sit for more than two hours to get to this news.

    Ross A. Lincoln7 MINUTES AGO
    Iger is announcing that the rumors of a Star Wars land at Disneyland are true.

    TEXT:

    Ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life in the two parks include creating Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14-acres each, transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.


    “I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars,” said Iger. “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.”


    These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.

    Can't wait for some one to do the calculations on what 14 acres would look like at DHS
