Star Wars fans can start getting excited because it looks like there’s a big announcement coming regarding Disney’s new Star Wars themed parks.

EW have revealed that a TV Special on February 21st and hosted by Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, will unveil Disney’s big plans.

The Wonderful World of Disney special will air on ABC and will celebrate 60 years of Disneyland.

Disney chairman and CEO Robert Iger has revealed some very juicy details in the mean time: “Every store and restaurant will be operated by local inhabitants, making each experience deeply immersive. Nothing in the land will be out of character or stray from mythology. By the way, we’re currently casting for roles, so if you live on the Outer Rim there maybe a job for you.”

Two attractions currently known are the cantina from the original 1977 movie which will be filled with familiar faces – human and other – and another, which everyone is going to want to go on – will the a ride allowing you to pilot the Millenium Falcon in a battle with the First Order… that’ll do for us!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
