When Disney bought Lucasfilm, it was obvious that the company would make the most of the acquisition by beefing up the Star Wars presence at the Disney theme parks. Walt Disney Company chief Bob Iger just reiterated that the film franchise will make its way into parks throughout the world, but he also noted that in order to both “do this big” and do it right, it’ll take time.
Disney couldn’t just jump right into building new attractions immediately after the purchase of Lucasfilm. The park designers had to wait until J.J. Abrams was ready to reveal plans for Star Wars: The Force Awakens because the new main attractions will be based on the new films, not the old ones.
