Disney CEO Bob Iger Hints At 'Star Wars' Theme Parks

"Star Wars" theme parks may be the next adventure for Disney.

During yesterday's earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Igerhinted at the possibility of a theme park while discussing further opportunities for its "Star Wars" acquisition.

"In addition to the Star Wars feature films that we’ve already talked about, we’re also working on opportunities for television and our parks. It’s still very early in the process. We’ll announce details as these developments evolve."

Rumors have been swirling about a possible "Star Wars" land since Disney acquired the rights to Lucasfilm last year for $4 billion. 

Earlier this year, the rumors seemed more than just that as images of surveys in Disneyland California asking visitors if they'd be interested in a "Star Wars"-themed park popped up online.

Gawker's Ken Layne tweeted the following in March: 

Since Iger mentioned opportunities through parks, it sounds likely the focus could also be on "Star Wars"-themed rides. 

Disney already has annual "Star Wars" weekends in place at its parks.
