Plans for Disney’s Star Wars expansion at Hollywood Studios are starting to take shape even further with the news that permits have been filed to begin work one of the land’s headlining attractions.
Two permits were filed for what insiders suspect is the new Battle Escape attraction. The building that will house the attraction is already near completion making ride construction the natural next step.
The first permit identifies structural, electrical and mechanical designers as key partners as well as contractors specializing in steelwork and plasterwork, indicating a focus on the internal elements of the attraction. A second permit identifies contractors that will work on the architectural and scenic elements of the building’s facade.
According to a piece on WDWMagic.com, one of the companies identified in the second permit, The Nassal Company, has previously worked with Universal on The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman at Islands of Adventure as well as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Both permits expire the end of September 2019, providing fans with a pretty good indication on when we might see the new Star Wars land open to the public.
