Say goodbye to Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The theme park says in a blog post that the annual event held on consecutive weekends in May and June will no longer be offered because of construction of a Star Wars-themed land at Hollywood Studios. Once it’s completed, 14 acres will be devoted to Star Wars every day.
Disney officials are slowly unveiling details about upcoming Star Wars attractions, including changes coming to the Star Tours ride that incorporates scenes from the upcoming movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
A Jedi Training attraction is opening at the park in early December.
Construction on the new Star Wars land is set to begin early next year. Disney has not said when it will open.
