The upcoming expansion of Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019 to include a dedicated Star Wars land is one of the most exciting developments coming to Orlando in the next few years, and is potentially one of the most exciting things to have happened to the Orlando theme parks ever, in our eyes! And the fan reaction to the news means we’re not the only ones who think that.
So when we woke up this morning to news that the full-scale model for the new land had been revealed, we had to share it with you immediately! Here are some photos but scroll down for a video of the full model.
Firstly we have an idea of what the Secret Resistance Base will look like:
This is the base for General Leia Organa’s secret Resistance fighters on this still unnamed new planet. Rumour has it that this area of the park will be where guests queue for the much-anticipated Millennium Falcon ride. You can see the ship itself parked in the middle of the model in the space port.

This is where guests to the park will find the base of the evil First Order, as well as the second big ticket attraction in the new land. Here, the First Order and the hero Resistance fighters will meet in an epic squirmish that simulates a battle chase style new ride. There's no name for this ride as yet, but the ride cars have been revealed. Each ride car will sit 8 guests facing forward in what looks like a simulator-style ride.
Here is the full walk-through of the new land:
We are expecting more details to be revealed about this epic new land over the next few days at the D23 Expo, so watch this space!
