Rumors have be swirling on the internet for almost a year about a Star Wars Land coming to Hollywood Studios. This past weekend news broke out of Walt Disney World that has Star Wars fans excited.
Disney announced that the American Idol Experience will be closing permanently in January 2015. Our sources and more rumors are indicating that Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular will also close at the end of this year to make way for the rumored Star Wars Land. This is most logical space for them to build the new land since it’s close proximity to Star Tours and the space that now houses the American Idol Experience.
Here is Disney’s statement on the American Idol closing:
“After more than five successful years, The American Idol Experience will be coming to a close at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in January 2015. Our partnership with FremantleMedia and 19 Entertainment has been a great addition to the park and we are very appreciative of the amazing cast and guests who have devoted their time and talent to make this experience special and memorable. We are incredibly proud of the more than 2,000 Dream Tickets that have given guests a chance to live their very own Cinderella story and audition for ‘American Idol’. This past season alone, three of the Top 13 contestants were originally discovered through The American Idol Experience and we expect the attraction to continue providing top contestants for ‘American Idol’ XIV in the coming year.”
These are still rumors but with the official closing of American Idol we are one step closer to seeing Start Wars Land becoming a reality. Let us know in the comments what you think.
