Harrison Ford to Preview Star Wars Land in Upcoming Disney Special
Disney's upcoming anniversary special, The Wonderful World of Disney, will be peppered with celebrity appearances, including performances from Elton John and Josh Gad. But for those of you who are eagerly anticipating Star Wars Land, the special just became that much more exciting, as Han Solo himself will be hosting the Star Wars portion of the show.

There will be a segment entirely dedicated to Star Wars Land, in which Harrison Ford will exclusively reveal more plans for the 14-acre park. In addition to the rides and restaurants, there will be a cantina and the park will be filled with wandering humanoids, aliens, and droids. According to Disney chairman Bob Iger, the experience will be completely holistic, as every staff member will be dressed in Star Wars garb.
Opening quote
"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," he joked.
Closing quote

But other than some concept art, we don't know all that many specifics about Star Wars Land, so hopefully Ford will fill us in on the details, as well as any "special modifications."

The Wonderful World of Disney will air on February 21 at 8pm on ABC.
