21-08-2015 15:00

Are you a “Star Wars” fan? Well, we have some great news for you! The film franchise is becoming a reality. Disney wants to build two “Star Wars” lands.

One “Star Wars” land will be in California. The second “Star Wars” land will be in Florida. There will be two new rides. You will also be able to control the Millennium Falcon spaceship. It is a famous spaceship from “Star Wars”.

We do not know how much everything costs. It can be around 1 billion dollars.

There is a new Disney park in Shanghai. It will open next year. It cost 5.5 billion dollars.

Difficult words: franchise (a series of films and things which you can buy), will (this means “in the future”), be able to (can).

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?
