Variety reported today that according to Disney CEO, Bob Iger, future Star Wars theme park attractions will be based solely on the new movies, starting with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Development on Star Wars theme park attractions was halted for Imagineers until a clear vision of what J. J. Abrams was intending for The Force Awakens was fully revealed to them. Iger felt it best to have Star Wars attractions based on future movies, basically saying, someone who sees the Force Awakens wants to go on a ride based on the movie they just saw. At one point Iger mentions that the rides may have a blend of past, future and present, so there will be some presence of the original 6 movies in future attractions.
