Star Wars Land announced for Disney's Hollywood Studios

That's probably the least surprising thing ever... Have you seen his other Disney videos?
He pretty much nails the feeling though... from the (blessing in disguise) fact that no one had phones (or watches), to the anticipation waiting in the tunnel to go in, to the cast members and attention to detail, and see the MF for 1st time... SWL is so well done

Another good thing about the preview we went to - absolutely no strollers in sight anywhere!

Speaking of this...

Do we know if there are indoor / partially-blocked-from-view stroller parking areas? It would be a shame to have lines of strollers against the sides of buildings...
Didn't you hear, no kids allowed. :D
Just kidding... nobody get your Huggies in a bunch.
It would be nice to have it as open as the press and vloggers got to experience it though.

Oh I’m not doubting it’s well done.

I just think it’s hilarious that one of his greatest joys was seeing people forced to put their phones away and experience the land without them. Says so much about our society. Or even his admission of feeling glad he didn’t have to film himself. That shouldn’t just get swept away in a passing comment.

It’s very telling how “naked” it felt to be technology free at 1st... but it also helped accentuate the experience because we had no crutch.

We sat next to a couple at dinner (strangers) but we all sat there talking about how awesome SWL was, and then we noted how incredibly refreshing it was not to see everybody’s head buried in their phones..:

It’s was very noticeable and I’m glad I got to experience the land that way...

You're likely one of the few people who ever will experience it that way too.
Especially when you consider all the Park App features GE will likely have.

Maybe this is a really dumb question and I apologize if it has already been answered but in DHS you get a very clear view from Slinky Dog Dash the entirety of SWL. How will they be able to hide the coaster from within Star Wars Land? The trees and berm? Seems like you'd still see his face looming up from some places...

Your view from SDD is of the tops of buildings, you don't see the pedestrian ways. Consequently, the pedestrians can't see you.

This is done much like Africa and India in AK, with the wires crumbling facades etc., it's excellent.
It really looks like a genuine foreign land (just one located a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away) and not some homage to a movie in a theme park.
