In this weeks article, ‘‘Star Wars’: Coming to a Theme Park Near You, The New York Times exposes information on “Star Wars” theme park attractions, custom jets and a related museums that are being innovated today. The seventh film in the “Star Wars” franchise, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” will release this December, and so far, Disney announced that it will build “Star Wars”-themed areas at two of its parks, Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. The Japanese airline, ANA, will launch three planes which will internally and externally mimic a Star War character, R2D2. The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will soon be built in Chicago and will expose cinematic and beautiful art reflecting the Star Wars series.
I believe that the innovation of these ideas will result in large profits for owners and investors. Star Wars originated in 1977, and according to wikipedia, it’s franchise is worth over 30 billion dollars. Not only will fans of the new movie “Star Wars:The Force Awakens,” attend these major attractions, but Star War fans from the 90’s (when the first seasons began) will be interested in attending as well.
