"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:
Yeah, we're going to get a Star Wars Land. The 11-year-old part of me is very pleased with this development. twitter.com/KenLayne/statu…— Ken Layne (@KenLayne) March 20, 2013
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.
