This past Thursday at a Merrill Lynch Media, Communications and Entertainment conference in Beverly Hills, Disney chief operating officer Tom Staggs commented on the upcoming new Star Wars expansion coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Park. Announcing that both expansion will break ground in 2016 Staggs was still cautions on mentioning any date of completion for the new “lands”. He did reiterate how he and Iger would like to see the Star Wars lands to open “really, really soon’.
Both these expansions will mark the single biggest investment in the history of the company’s theme parks and therefore you can understand why the complex expansions can’t be completed overnight.
