Star Wars Land on Tap? D23 Expo anyone?

Rumors continue to swirl that the recent purchase of Lucasfilm will cause Disney to place a land in Disney's Hollywood Studios in the near future. Though this is purely speculation it is thought that the upcoming D23 Expo might be the locale for such announcement to take place. Like the announcement of New Fantasyland, a Star Wars area announcement would certainly drive up considerable buzz (more than the Avatar announcement) and would also cause a definitive response to the Universal announcement of Harry Potter's new land in the Jaws area of Universal Studios. The thought is that Disney would have an endless amount of ideas to choose from and would make for some amazing sightlines, attractions and eateries. Consider these that we thought up rather quickly:

1. Mos Eisley Cantina- An eatery directly out of Luke's home planet of Tatooine and straight from A New Hope

2. A Permanent home for the Jedi Training Academy- An indoor locale would allow for some excellent special effects.

3. An Indoor Roller Coaster based on the Death Star attack- Could be pretty cool.

Just thinking of the possibilities is enough to make people hope and pray that these rumors are true. Stay tuned for the details if and when this becomes a reality. Many other media outlets are already reporting that this is all but announced. We shall see.
