Orlando recently hosted the "Star Wars Celebration" event and some very interesting details emerged from the panels. The Imagineers shared that Star Wars Land at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland will feature a never-before-seen location - a remote frontier outpost - that is "an extension of the Star Wars universe." The two new attractions - including one where guests get to become part of the flight crew of the Millenium Falcon - will feature new levels of interactivity from guests. The current Star Tours attraction on both coasts will be getting a new scene from "The Last Jedi." Star Wars Land will open in 2019.
