Disney Reveals New Details of STAR WARS Land and Star Tours at Celebration

Star Wars Land at the Disney theme parks is still two years away from opening, but more and more details have emerged at a panel today. You won’t have to wait the full two years for at least one new attraction: Inside the Magic reports the addition of planet Crait, from The Last Jedi, to Star Tours, just as Jakku was added in time for The Force Awakens (now that we don’t have to worry about spoilers for that film, it’d be great to see Starkiller Base added as a planet too, but no word on that). Crait, as director Rian Johnson recently revealed, is the mineral-mining planet in the trailer that looks like salt flats.

Meanwhile, via the Hollywood Reporter, we’ve learned that there will be some sort of cumulative “reputation” system, so that if you do a bad job steering the Millennium Falcon ride, someone may mention it later in the day in another area. It’s not clear how they’ll pull that off, but the Falcon ride will assign different riders different jobs as crew, with interactive elements that ensure a number of different possible ride experiences.

Also in the works: the most realistic-looking lightsabers ever, and the chance to drink blue milk and eat meat grilled on a podracer engine.

There’s a lot of cool concept art too, for the new planet on which the park is set, heavily based on Ralph McQuarrie art.

Can 2019 just get here already? Should we try freezing ourselves like Cartman did that one time for the Nintendo Wii, only to end up on a planet of atheist otters? Tell us your strategy for surviving the wait in comments.
