New Delhi, July 15, 2017: Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has unveiled the first look of the Disney’s Star Wars theme parks, not in the form of a hologram, but in a 50ft physical model, giving a fine idea as to what visitors can expect.

The model of the project was revealed at D23 Expo, the ongoing mega fan event in Anaheim, California. The location is described as a “never-before-seen planet” and a “remote trading port and one of the last stops before Wild Space, where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.”

CEO Bob Iger, in 2015, announced that the plan for a ‘Star Wars land’ has taken hold and promised “a jaw dropping new world” that would be the biggest single theme park ever created, populated by “humanoids, aliens and droids”.

Disney has revealed that visitors will control the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission as part of one signature attraction, while the other main attraction will land visitors “in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.”

“It’s really about living in a story”, said Bob Chapek, the chairman of Disney’s parks and resorts. He added that the hope of the imagineers to create the sense of “total immersion” will involve visitors making choices right from the arrival.

“The model will remain on display at the pavilion throughout the weekend” says the PTI report.

These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will open in 2019 – along with the release of Star Wars: Episode |X, the final installment of the current film trilogy.

Tesla has announced that it will close its Fremont, California, factory on March 23 in acknowledgement of the coronavirus crisis.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk had come under widespread criticism from government officials, industry watchdogs and many consumers for attempting to keep production humming in the face of Alameda county’s COVID-19-induced “shelter in place” order, CNET reported on Friday.

On Tuesday it was initially reported that Tesla wouldn’t be subjected to the shelter-in-place order designed but the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department shortly thereafter issued a statement proclaiming Tesla “is not an essential business as defined in the Alameda County Health Order. Tesla can maintain minimum basic operations per the Alameda County Health Order”.
