Disney Making Plans for a Bigger ‘Star Wars’ Presence in Theme Parks
During a conference call to discuss third quarter results for The Walt Disney Company, CEO Bob Iger made it clear that the company is planning a greater Star Wars presence in the near future.
Iger said the company plans to release the first look at new Star Wars themed attractions next year. Disney and Lucasfilm are also hosting a Star Wars Celebration on April 16-19, 2015 in Anaheim.
The Force will also be strong at next year’s D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.
“When we grow Star Wars presence, which we will do significantly, you will see better bets being made that will pay off for us than were made in the past,” Iger said during the conference call.
The next installment in the Star Wars film franchise is set to arrive in theaters on December 18, 2015.
