Disney's STAR WARS Land Will Include a Jedi Training Academy

Star Wars by Joey Paur

Not long ago it was revealed that Disney was finally going to move forward with plans to make a Star Wars themed attraction area at Walt Disney World. We now have a couple little details about what will be included in the theme park.

The previous report of the Star Wars themed land revealed that it will be part of a revamp that is being planned for Disney's Hollywood Studios. It will include an expansion of the existing "Star Tours" ride, as well as a number of interactive environments like a full-scale Mos Eisley Cantina. They go on to say that we can expect to "see new levels added to Star Tours and some more interactive attractions, possibly an additional ride." The added that most of "the expansion will be environments and character meet-and-greet areas."

Now a couple of these other attractions have been revealed. Thanks to an insider, CBM reports that there will be an indoor Jedi Training Academy that is being set up at the ABC Sound Studio. They also say that The Backlot Express is "being converted into a Star Wars-themed ride aimed for younger children who don't make the height requirement on the Star Tours ride."

And that's it. I'm not sure if there will be any other attractions included, but it doesn't seem like the extensive overhaul that fan were expecting. The Jedi Training Academy could be pretty cool though, depending on what they do with it. 

Where is your excitement level for the Star Wars Disney World stuff now? Hopefully they end up doing more.
