New Star Wars and Avatar attractions teased for Disney World

The Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom parks will house the new creations

Disney has confirmed new Star Wars and Avatar attractions are coming to Disney World.

The new Star Wars ride will be in Disney World's Hollywood Studios whilst the Avatar-themed creation is in development for the Animal Kingdom park.

The news was broken on Disney's Insider blog by Dave Fisher, show producer at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Pavilion, when talking about what to expect at the D23 Expo in August.

"We have a technology called DISH, which stands for Digital Immersive Showroom, and we'll show how it’s helped us design several attractions — visitors will be able to virtually ride two attractions, the same way we do when we're testing them," said Fisher.

"We're also going to be doing sneak peeks at upcoming projects including Disney Springs, the re-imagining of Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort. There will be teasers for Avatar and Star Wars at the Disney Parks."

Expect more on the parks when the D23 Expo runs from August 9th to August 11th.
