Kylo Ren is going to Disney World (and Disneyland)!

The lightsaber-wielding villain of the blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens will soon become a fixture at Disney Parks.

The entertainment giant has announced that, beginning next month, visitors to the Star Wars Launch Bay attractions at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, will come face to face with Kylo Ren on the bridge of his First Order Star Destroyer.

The Star Wars Launch Bay is described as an immersive experience, complete with replica props, models and costumes from the movie saga, and behind-the-scenes videos. Both Disney parks also feature such Star Wars experiences as Star Tours — The Adventure Continues and Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple.

Construction begins this month and Disneyland and Disney World on 14-acre Star Wars-themed lands, described as Disney’s “largest single-theme land expansion ever.” No opening dates have been announced.

I think Ren is going to become popular… for “wrong” reasons. People will come up to him and hiss, “Boo! You killed !” If there are Disney theme park visitors who still haven’t watched SW:TFA, they’d better steer clear of Ren lest onlookers blab away (unless they don’t care).

They have Darth Vader running around too, right? Cause that would be a fun interaction between the two.

I refuse to buy tickets until I get confirmation on appearances by Jar Jar.
