A new report says Tomorrowland may get a change...
Disneyland could be about to become the happiest place in the galaxy. MiceChat.com reports that there are plans to bring Star Wars to Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
The report notes that the Rocket Jets spinner and PeopleMover platform will be getting an "extreme makeover as a landing pad in the Star Wars spaceport that forms the loose theme for the new land." According to the report, the Millennium Falcon will be there as a walk-through attraction and include a meet and greet with Chewbacca, while the Tomorrowland Terrace dining facility will be made over into the Mos Eisley cantina on Tattoine.
The report also notes that the new headliner attraction, which will take the place of the existing Innoventions and Autopia, will be the "new Speeder Bike thrill ride." The report notes:
The majority of the track heads outdoors and to the north, demolishing the Autopia freeways and taking over most of that area for the new ride. The outdoor Speeder Bike course is set on the forest moon of Endor where the Ewoks live, and an Ewok village and walk-through attraction will house dining and shops as the Speeder Bike ride zooms nearby. Imagineering has had dueling proposals for this area; one that retains the 1959 looping course of the Monorail and disguises it amongst the forest, and one that cuts out much of that track and shortens the Monorail route to open up more of the Ewok forest visuals.
Keep in mind that none of this is confirmed and that Autotopia is one of the iconic rides, so I would take this with a grain of salt, especially with a Tomorrowland film in the work. That said, Disney never confirms information about new theme park attractions until they're ready, so it is possible.
