Euroscum reader Mattia from Italy sent us news of the first Star Wars theme park to be built in the Gulf Emirate of Dubai. Here's Mattia's account:


Dear Rebelscum,

My name is M. Mattia Im from Italy.

I have a news that may interest you to know. I work in the Theme Park industry and Im currently in Dubai where I just had a meeting in DUBAI LAND.

DUBAI LAND is a 107 square kilometer project that involve the construction of:

UNIVERSAL STUDIOS and other park which also for the first time in the world an entire STAR WARS PARK.

The project manager told me that George Lucas will personally follow the construction.

THIS IS GREAT

They also told me that is still a secret but the construction already started and will be over in 4 years.

Greetings

M. Mattia



UPDATE: Until more details are available, we suggest a virtual visit to DUBAILAND's website.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
