Star Wars land is coming - level 2

Star Wars land is coming - level 2

21-08-2015 15:00

Disney is transforming “Star Wars” from a galaxy far, far away to California and Florida – Disney announced plans to bring the film franchise to two of its parks. The project will feature two new rides, including one where people take control of the Millennium Falcon spaceship – a famous spaceship from the movies.

The construction of the “Star Wars” land will begin in Disneyland in California in 2017. It is not known when the construction in Florida will begin.

Disney said nothing about the costs, but it spent 1 billion dollars to build a 12-acre Cars Land. Next year, a 5.5 billion dollar theme park will also open in Shanghai.

Difficult words: announce (to say something officially to the public), franchise (a series of films and products), feature (to have).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Are you excited about the new “Star Wars” lands? Will you visit them?
