Get ready to make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs! Disney has released behind the scenes footage of the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction set to open at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim summer 2019 and at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando fall 2019.
“This place they’re walking through and the characters they’re seeing and the beasts, aliens and droids puts them in a position when they give themselves over to the moment of the story and play with us in the world of Star Wars,” said Scott Trowbridge, Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering in the video.
Star Wars fans will be immersed in the galaxy far, far away with two rides, both of which are featured in the video. One is the Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run where guests can take a light-speed ride in Han Solo’s iconic starship. The other is the Rise of the Resistance where guests can fight the empire and save the galaxy.
“It will be jaw-dropping and incredibly emotional to walk into the land for the first time,” said Carrie Beck, VP Lucasfilm Story Group.
The video above gives an exciting look at what we can expect when we step into “Galaxy’s Edge” and from the looks of it, the Force (and the long lines) will be strong with this new attraction…but it will be worth the wait!
