I seem to remember Cars and Cars 2 being two of the least critically received of the Pixar movies. Just because the movies were not as good as others doesn't mean features can't be used for successful attractions. The pod racers were on of the best past of the second trilogy. Unless you played Rogue Squadron, you never saw Devil's Canyon. It was a throwaway line in Episode IV. Those are all just ideas that came off the top of my head in less than five minutes. Give me a pen and paper and 14 hours to watch the saga (throw in a 2 liter of Mountain Dew too) and I can have a whole theme park sketched out.
It is nice to see a star wars fan using the avatar defense for a change.

Rumor is that a Star Wars land will be opened at Disneyland Paris in 2015.

That's in only two and a half years disney would already have to be working on it that seems unlikely i don't think anything will be opened until at least 2016

Here is a photo of Tattoine...

~Sorry, fabulous people of Star Wars -- but ewww, I do not like this. This may sound outlandish but is there a cute planet that incorporates basic elements such as color, plants, foliage, breathtaking landscapes, water! If Disney were to adopt this Tattoine concept for Star Wars land, I think it would be better fit for Epcot's Future World. Otherwise, I can envision Disney having to create or recreate a new world in the upcoming films specifically for Star Wars land and just keep the familiar characters and icons.

This would be totally awesome and would love to have this added in the very near future, although I'm sure the money spent on Avatar Land will delay this for many years to come; hopefully not. Let me take this time to bash Avatarland and express my HATE for this new addition, thank you.

Yes. This.

Wouldn't a M&G be *fun* with some of these?

The reason Star Tours 2.0 rarely has lines has nothing to do with popularity. It's the highest capacity attraction at DHS and plows through people at a rate that keeps the wait times low.

I'm not sure how much time you spent searching images of Star Wars but there is a lot more than just Sand People and the Twin Suns.

Who wouldn't want a Wookie as a side kick?

You've got Ewoks

Everyone loves the droids.

For backgrounds you have:
Coruscant

Naboo

Endor

Kashyyyk

~OMG, those ewok bear things are so adorable! Okay, color me impressed! I'm not too familiar with Star Wars so I struggled to conceptualize a Star Wars "land." Thank you so much, for the posting this -- the pictures are just fabulous! I love it! Twin Dad -- you have really outdone yourself with this post! I just can't narrow it down to just one planet & can see why people feel Star Wars deserves an entire theme park! Anyway, I am very excited and hoping for a Star Wars land announcement soon!

I'm fine as long as they add a Mos Eisley Cantina.

I love Star Wars and really want more Star Wars here at Disney World

I personally love the twin suns of Tatooine.
