September 10, 2015 – Disney Announces Groundbreaking for Star Wars Lands

“We want people to feel like they’ve stepped into the world of Star Wars and so that’s really sparked our imaginations and it’s got people fired up.” – COO Tom Staggs

On September 10, 2015, Disney Chief Operating Officer Tom Staggs announced the plans for Star Wars-themed lands, with construction slated to start in 2016 at both the California and Florida parks. While specifics weren’t given in terms of attractions, it was rumored that there would be a recreation of the Millennium Falcon, along with the original cantina from the 1977 film. It was confirmed, however, that elements from both the original trilogy and the upcoming Disney-released films would be present in the lands being built.
