Disneyland Paris – expansion?

Disneyland Paris expansion

Hello there,

Thanks for coming to the page…..please spread the word!

As a resident in the UK, I have followed but not yet visited Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at both Batuu East & West and was hoping that something like this would be built closer to me at Disneyland Paris.

Now the Galactic Star Cruiser, Halcyon, is due for launch in 2022, I thought, where are we at closer to home?

Up until the COVID pandemic there were concept designs and scant information released to say that Europe would get an expansion.


Sadly in the fall of 2021 it looks like the proposed “Star Wars Land” is now off the table, with only the Frozen & Marvel areas/lands breaking ground. Why? Who knows?


So, in this post, I thought I would upload the information I have to this point to show what could have been and what should have opened 2024/2025.

Proposed to be built as an extension in the Disney Studios backlot (South West), in the park. A scaled down version of what is located in the USA, included 1 ride, rumoured to be Rise of the Resistance plus a merchandise shop and restaurant.

It would have a themed waiting line with full size X-Wing fighter, no Millennium Falcon for Europe.

3d images have emerged and it would appear the ground has been broken for Frozen fans but not for Star Wars fans!

Maybe it will still happen?

Should we get something bigger and better?

Collecting is a big part of Star Wars. Ever since the earliest merchandise, fought over by an astute, George Lucas, from 20th Century Fox was release by Kenner in the US and Palitoy in the UK plus many others around the world we want it.

Since 1977/78 I have bought, been bought and gifted many items from across the range of items figures, vehicles, creatures to toothbrushes, flannels and earphones.

Although not every item I own, I have uploaded many images to the Collection section of the website. There you can look at Prequel / Original / Sequel trilogy items.

Some of you may have these items, some you may not but, my hope is you enjoy them.

More WILL follow…

Andor – Filming in the UK.

Hello there!


Over the past few days/weeks there has been a lot of filming activity for the Star Wars Show Andor.

The Show is going to be a prequel to the film Rogue One, and tells the tales of Cassian Andor and his journey to the Rebellion.

Many places in the UK appear to have been used for filming this series, which is actually a little different to the other TV show – The Mandalorian, which was mostly filmed in The Volume at MBS studios, California.

It would appear that this production is traversing the UK and using a lot more “real World” locations to convey Galaxy’s far, far away.

 Who would believe that Shoretroopers would end up in Blackpool!



I have put together some information of what I have seen, so far and added Google Maps pinpoints to the Places of filming.

Thanks to my good friend at FanthaTracks for a lot of the info and also the Daily Mail and Dorset Echo.
