Han Solo is returning to the Star Wars universe to celebrate the franchise’s commercial success, and Disneyland’s anniversary, in a major way.
Disney has announced plans for Harrison Ford to appear in The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 TV special, which will celebrate 60 years of the theme park. The iconic actor is slated to reveal the company’s plans for several Star Wars attractions.
According to an ABC press release, Disneyland in Anaheim and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida will be privy to construction for the new themed attractions. Most of the parks’ upcoming rides for the record shattering franchise have been kept under wraps. However, it is clear the “lands” will feature attractions centering on a Millennium Falcon flight and a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
The two-hour Derek Hough hosted special, scheduled to air on Feb. 21, will also feature appearances by Elton John, Josh Gad and Witney Carson.
