Star Wars expansion at Walt Disney Studios Park thrown into doubt.

Fellow Disney fan site Disneyphile are reporting that the proposed “Star Wars” land expansion of the Walt Disney Studios Parks has been put on hold by the Walt Disney Company.

The proposed Star Wars themed land announced in 2018 during the Walt Disney Company takeover of Euro Disney SCA was likely to have been a clone of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge from Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

But the “Star Wars” expansion appears to have now been abandoned if an interview with the resort’s President Natacha Rafalski given to French television is to be believed.

When asked by the interviewer “The third thematic area mentioned in 2018 concerned the Star Wars universe, but it is no longer mentioned today. Is it still planned?”, Rafalski answered “We are still working on the third theme. We will make announcements about this when we are ready.”

Work on the expansion has only just broken ground, with Arendelle: World of Frozen being the focus at present, although we haven’t seen anything go vertical yet. The site of the “Star Wars” area has remained only a staging area.
