PHOTOS - Latest construction pictures of the Star Wars hotel at Walt Disney World

Star Wars hotel construction at Walt Disney World - June 2019

Construction crews have been busy at the future Star Wars hotel, with much of the main building now in place.

The two story structure is expected to have less than 100 guest rooms, with its interior designed to recreate the interior of a space craft - including spaces such as Dojo, the Brig, and the Engineering Room - all locations that could contain highly themed and immersive experiences.

You can read more about the Star Wars hotel in a previous article where we looked at some detailed plans of the hotel.

If you are wondering where the hotel fits in relation to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, you can see the hotel in the top left of the picture below.

Disney is yet to release an opening date, but with the speed of construction and the relatively small size of the hotel, a 2020 opening would seem a realistic estimate.

They also hold the rights to the word "Marvel" as well stateside. Hence the "Avengers Campus" at DL.

And the lobby would never need cleaning! Just let the cobwebs accumulate dust!

A marvel hotel would make most sense in hong kong with its marvel inspired tomorrowland and could actually be a good draw for the resort. Paris is already getting the Marvel overlay at the New York Hotel but I could see some form of marvel experience replacing the buffalo bill show at disney village.

Universal's contract gives them exclusive rights to use certain characters in theme parks. So if someone wanted to build a Marvel themed restaurant in New York that contact wouldn't come in to play since it's not being done in a theme park. In theory the same should apply to a Marvel hotel at WDW, but that would be up to the lawyers to hash out.

I thought they were likeness rights? I could def see this occurring at DL first for that reason.

Yeah, if they could get Rowling to go for it, a Potter version of this idea would be a huge hit. Universal only holds the theme park rights so that wouldn't necessarily stop them from doing a themed hotel.

Marvel rights being tied up may prevent them from doing that. Maybe they can find a loophole or something like they seem to do with certain characters.

Yeah....I'll stand by my words. If the Star Wars hotel crushes it. Universal will push for a Harry Potter themed hotel. Maybe Rowling nixes the idea, but Universal will try. I'm sure a ton of eyes are on the Star Wars hotel concept. Heck, if it's a hit... Disney might look at a Marvel style hotel concept.

Maybe for one of the other IPs. But I don’t see JKR changing her mind.

Universal will copy Disney and do just that if this Star Wars hotel makes a killing
