Take a Virtual Tour of Disney’s Star Wars Theme Park, Galaxy’s Edge
They already unveiled the massive model of the Star Wars Land coming soon to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, but today at Disney’s D23 convention, the Mouse House gave even more details about this expansion, coming some time in 2019. Most importantly, they gave the thing a name: Henceforth, it is officially called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. (The name covers both the Disneyland and Disney World versions.) You will be forgiven if you continue to call it Star Wars Land.
Disney Parks Blog also had some really cool concept art as well as even more information about the two major attractions coming to Galaxy’s Edge. One attraction will supposedly “make you feel like you’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay,” and they’re advertising that it’s built on a scale Disney’s never done before. But it’s the other attraction that I think most fans are going to be salivating over:
The second attraction will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millenium Falcon, piloting the ship, shooting blasters or preparing for hyperspace – all while completing a critical mission. But how you perform on the mission holds even bigger stakes: perform with skill and you may earn extra galactic credits, while bringing the ship back banged up could put you on the list of a bounty hunter. End up on Harkos’s list and you may face a problem if you show up at the local cantina!
Yes, the cantina will be there too, where you will be able to finally sample “blue milk,” that mysterious liquid that Luke chugs on Tattooine. As a movie food devotee, this is the most exciting development of all. Galaxy’s Edge will also feature appearances from Chewbacca, members of the First Order, BB-8, and Rex, the former pilot of the old Star Tours ride, who now works as the DJ of the cantina where, again, you can drink blue freaking milk.
There’s no official opening dates set yet, but both versions of Galaxy’s Edge are scheduled to debut some time in 2019.
