New details have emerged about next year’s grand opening of the Galaxy’s Edge
Since the first announcement in 2015, information has been brought to light bit by bit about the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxyâs Edge lands, which are set to open in 2019 in both Anaheim-based Disneyland and Orlandoâs Hollywood Studios. The parksâ fantasy-makers are playing coy about many details, but we know the parks are going to be bigâat 14 planned acres, itâs the largest single-themed expansion Disneyâs done yet.
Insiders and execs, like Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek, have also begun to share insight about the attractions themselves, to the delight of Star Wars fans. The parkswill transform into Batuu, the smuggler-ridden port on the Galaxyâs Edge, where visitors can experience two thrilling spaceship adventures. From the cockpit of The Millennium Falcon, theyâll have the chance to pilot a dangerous mission, and aboard a sleek Star Destroyer vessel, theyâll be trapped amidst a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests can also relax after facing down galactic danger with a glass of Luke Skywalkerâs famed blue milkâthe only yet-announced menu itemâon a visit to the cantina, where they might spot some other familiar creatures.
