Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Likely Cancelled at Disneyland Paris, Third Expansion at Walt Disney Studios Park Still Undecided

Back in 2018, the expansion of Walt Disney Studios Park at Disneyland Paris was announced with three central themes — Avengers Campus, Arendelle from “Frozen”, and a “Star Wars” expansion likely to have been a clone of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge from Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. But the “Star Wars” plan seems to be scrapped, if an interview with the resort’s President is to be believed.

The “Star Wars” area was to be located in the upper left area of the park. French Disney fan site Disneyphile caught wind of this change through an interview Disneyland Paris President Natacha Rafalski gave on French TV. 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 begun, 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.

We could see a new announcement at D23 Expo in September or in the months and years beyond, only time will tell. Stay tuned to WDWNT for the latest news on the Disneyland Paris expansion.

  1. Lovely as it is to have Frozen, adults also visit the park and Star Wars would be amazing, basing this on visits to WDW, It’s a fantastic area.

  2. Honestly they really only have to base it on the upcoming movies like Rogue Squadron or the New Republic era with The Mandalorian instea of the Sequel Trilogy and I can be certain there would be tons of interest. Do a X-Wing/TIE Fighter simulator based on the Rogue Squadron film with Poe or Wedge (depending on era) where visitors can pick their side for two different experiences, plus a variation of Rise of the Resistance. Set it on a different planet with a more temperate climate to Batuu or a different part altogether. Honestly they just need to take what works with Galaxy’s Edge in Californa and Florida and iron out the stuff which doesn’t work. Europeans will still adore the chance to do light sabers or droids without flying across the pond to do so.

    That saying I can tell from hearing it on the grapevine that they’re thinking about Encanto instead and I could see that working too.

  3. Lol to previous comment- the sequel trilogy might not be popular with YOU, but judging by the amount of Rey’s and Kylo’s I see in the park it’s plenty popular and continues to be financially successful.

    Also- they said “we’ll announce it when we are ready” and “never said it was going to be “galaxys edge” so I mean you got your clickbait but your journalistic integrity is bottom of the barrel at best
