Harrison Ford to Reveal New ‘Star Wars’ Theme Parks in Upcoming ABC SpecialCharles Bramesco |
On February 21, ABC will broadcast a new special titled The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60, a commemoration of the Anaheim amusement park’s sixtieth anniversary and Star Wars devotees just got a reason to tune in that can’t be ignored.
To stoke the fires of anticipation for this exciting new
commercial televised special, Disney announced that they’d fly in none other than Han Solo himself to give a special sneak peek at the Star Wars attractions currently in development. With new parks now under construction at both the Disneyland location in Anaheim as well as Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Star Wars fever at an all-time high in the wake of Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ staggering success, Disney hopes to maximize their exposure of what will undoubtedly be a hugely popular attraction by bringing in Harrison Ford to generate a little buzz over these soon-to-come features.
According to Deadline, the massive in-park overhaul will take over 14 of Disneyland’s 85 acres and take at least another year. But to keep visitors on the Star Wars hook, Disney has already worked in elements of Star Wars: The Force Awakens to their perennial Star Tours and Space Mountain attractions. The special will run on ABC from 8-10pm ET on February 21, so if anyone reading this has a knack for broadcast signal intrusion, this would be the perfect time to introduce the people of America to Escape From Tomorrow.
