    Also:

    Today, we’re unveiling a stunning new image from Walt Disney Imagineering that shows just how amazing the Star Wars-themed land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla., will look once the sun goes down.


    As you can see, the land will take on a whole new dimension after dark and feature adventures and surprises around each corner. Click here for a larger version of the image above. If you look close, the image reveals a peek at what you’ll discover in this all-new land located in the southwest corner of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including one of the signature attractions that lets you take the controls of the Millennium Falcon.


    We’re also excited to share an update that work is already underway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., to bring the stories from a galaxy, far, far away to life in the parks.

    This is really one of my favorite rehabs ever. I love that they are keeping it fresh with new missions.
    Concept art for the land at night looks amazing.

    I wish they would have done something like this with the new Soarin' to make it interchangeable and update-able.

    Just realized that you posted a reveal date for this.
    We have FP+ for ST on the 18th, am I going to get to see this or will it be random?
    Can I ask a CM to see this version?

    That hasn't been made completely clear yet, although there are now Rumours that the Adventures are going to be less varying starting sometime in 2018 changing to two distinct adventures with still some variations in each one.

    No, my understanding is that the "loading crew" has no control on the course of your Adventure.

    Got to see the new version on Saturday and it was great.
    From what I was told, everyone will be seeing the new sequence regardless of which cabin you travel in. The randomization and talk of Old versus New segregation will not take place until after the new year and I'm assuming once the "newness" of the current sequence has sunken in.

    All in all a very well done update. Although my one criticism/suggestion would be to add a different droid from the ST to the opening with C3PO (you will understand once you see it).
