Han Solo has died and gone to Disney heaven.
Harrison Ford, who played the iconic galactic hero in four Star Wars films including The Force Awakens, will be on hand to reveal new details for the planned Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World as part of ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 special, airing Feb. 21 (8 E/PT).
Disney chairman Bob Iger first announced the 14-acre expansions at both theme parks during Disney’s D23 Expo last summer. Each will feature two signature attractions, with one letting people fly in Solo’s famous ride, the Millennium Falcon. “Guests will truly become part of a Star Wars story,” Iger said in August. “It’s going to be a whole new level, a whole new galaxy.”
The upcoming special, part of a year-long celebration of Disneyland’s 60th anniversary, will be hosted by Derek Hough and features appearances by Josh Gadand Elton John.
