It was in August 2015 when Disney surprised everyone with the announcement of a new and ambitious expansion to its parks in California and Florida. An increase that would be dedicated exclusively to creating a Star Wars land theme area. This new section would be the largest in the history of the parks as it covers an extension of 5.6 hectares.
We already know that Disney has become a specialist in creating hype around Star Wars, just remember what he has done before the premieres of Episode VII, Rogue One, and now with Episode VIII. So it was expected that something similar would happen with the new theme section of Disney parks.
