New Star Wars-inspired Entertainment Arrives at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Beginning In December 2015

Hello Star wars fans, Were in the home stretch and the new Star Wars movie is less than 30 days away. So what news could be more interesting than that? Well I am glad you asked. Out of mouths of Disney Hollywood Studios comes the first official information on the new Star Wars Land an some of the attractions that will be opening in December of this year. You heard me right, this December as we are gearing up for the first movie in generations. Here is what we can look forward to in the new Star Wars Land.

The primary location is being called the Star Wars Launch Bay. This multi-sensory location will showcase everything Star Wars related for the hardcore fan as well as the casual fan or even the fan who is just being introduced to the world. The outdoor ques will have Star Wars themed art and beloved characters to interact with. There will also be tours showing galleries of artifacts and memorabilia from all the movies. The area will also have Star Wars themed food locations and areas to try out the latest Star Wars video games. As a sample of what's coming, here is a little more specifics on some of the areas:

The Cantina will reflect the worst of the worst, the criminal element of the Star Wars universe, or as fans like to say; "A hive of scum and villainy." Fans will be able to take photos of themselves by many items including the favorite holochess game table.

Launch Bay Cargo is the grand shopping experience which will sell everything your Star Wars hear desires including new and original art and items.

Launch Bay Theater will allow fans and guests to experience behind the scenes interviews from the creative team that brought about Star Wars from beginning to its current iteration. Arranged in a short film format, these interviews are exclusive to Disney and will come from such sources as writers, directors, special effects, producers, etc.

The Star Wars Game Center will highlight both current and upcoming video games and give fans the chance to try them out before they buy them. This will include specially related Disney Infinity 3.0 content just for this specific location.

Besides the Star Wars Launch Bay, there are going to be a ton of other sights to see throughout this new park addition. Have you always wanted to be a Jedi? Two new areas will give you that feeling. Star Wars: Path of the Jedi will highlight iconic Jedi characters and let fans relive their favorite moments from all six Star Wars movies including the new Force Awakens. Trials of the Temple will update the already popular training entertainment area with new heroes and villains from Star Wars: Rebels, giving your aspiring, young Jedi a chance to Darth Vader and The Seventh Sister Inquisitor in a secret Jedi Temple.

If going to Disney is more about the food, well this new land will showcase some incredible Star Wars inspired foods. Everything from sit down restaraunts to novelty snacks. Does a Blue Milk Panna Cotta sound good? How about BB-8 Lemon and Butter Cream Cupcakes? Even the children will have access to the Han Solo Souvenir Kids Meal. There is even a special dessert event that park goers will be able to gain access to with special Star Wars themed desserts that will take place during the new fireworks show; Symphony in the Stars: a Galactic Spectacular.
