Disneyland's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Is Really Taking Shape

We’ve still got another year before Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, but Disney is temporarily sating our thirst with a new peek at what’s in store. And holy crap, it’s massive.


Disney Parks released a drone video showing the 14-acre Galaxy’s Edge in progress, and it looks even better than the concept photos. Sure, it’s nothing but scaffolding and framed rock formations, but just look at all the stuff that’s going to be there. I can barely wrap my head around it.

As of now, there are only two new rides in development. There’s the Millennium Falcon ride, where players are ranked on how well they perform their mission (if you bang up the ship, expect trouble at the cantina). There’s also one in the works where guests are inside a Star Destroyer hanger bay during a major battle between the First Order and the Resistance, though there isn’t a lot of information available on that one yet.

However, much like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, it’s just as much about the atmosphere as the rides. And this one is looking totally immersive, taking place on the new planet of Batuu. Plus, they’re going to have blue milk. Refreshing! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at both the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim as well as Walt Disney World in Orlando sometime in 2019.

As someone who has had almost no interest in going to a Disney park, I will certainly be planning a trip there after this is finished.
