Well, this was a long time coming!

We're feeling as unsure about this as Luke felt when he discovered Darth Vader was his papa!
Reportedly, Disneyland Imagineers, the geniuses who come up with and build Disney's rides, are rumored to be working on plans to give Tomorrowland a cosmic makeover.
The idea is to remodel most of Tomorrowland after Star Wars, including Episode VII!
What? That's not true! That's impossible! Wait, we officially searched our feelings and we know it to be true! Nooooooo!
"The Imagineers assigned to the Star Wars Tomorrowland project have now been debriefed on the characters and plotlines coming for Star Wars Episode VII that opens in theaters in about two years. The original plan for Disneyland’s Tomorrowland relied heavily on characters and plot points from the first three Star Wars films, with attractions like a Millenium Falcon walk-thru on the old PeopleMover platform, a wild Tatooine cantina replacing Tomorrowland Terrace, and a speeder bike ride through an Ewok village where Autopia currently sits. Those key attractions are all still part of phase two, but they are being layered or tweaked to include references from Episode VII that will be released in theaters at least 18 months before any of those attractions open.”
If they get rid of the historic Autopia for an "Ewok village," we'll straight up blow up the second moon of Endor with a Death Star! That ride is a part of Disneyland for life, and we'll freeze it in Carbonite if we have to!
SRSLY we're not sure if this will make for a bright, big, beautiful Tomorrowland! Fans will be so upset!
Oh, and the submarines? See ya! Forget finding Nemo…he'll be lost for good! Once again, this is all somewhat speculative, but still…
Ah! We don't do well with change…breathing becoming heavy…need Vader breathing apparatus…
Although these additions won't be coming for a few years, we hope Disney preserves some of the old Tomorrowland.
