Enjoy This Cool New STAR WARS: GALAXY'S EDGE Sneak Peek Behind-The-Scenes Video
Disney has shared a new sneak peek video video for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, giving us an extremely cool behind-the-scenes look at the highly anticipated attraction coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort in 2019.
Get ready to take control of the fastest ship in the galaxy on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Or join in an epic battle on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the biggest and most immersive Disney Parks attraction ever.
I seriously can’t wait to experience this, but I’ll probably wait a couple years after it opens before I actually attempt it. I just don’t want to fight the crowds that early because the insane crowds will make the experience miserable.
Anyway, in the video below, you’ll see some awesome footage of the park along with interviews with a few of the talented individuals that helped develop it. It even shows some footage from the Millennium Falcon ride and another attraction called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will allow guests to visit a remote trading port on the edge of wild space, where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life – and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action. The lands will feature two major attractions that put guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Each attraction – and even the land itself – will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before.
One attraction will make you feel like you’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay. The second attraction will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millennium 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!
Guests will also encounter many familiar faces inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including BB-8, Chewbacca, members of the First Order and – among many others – Rex, the troublesome pilot you may remember from Star Tours, who takes on a new role in this land as the DJ at the cantina. At the cantina guests will be able to try unique concoctions like blue milk. Nearby, they’ll also be able to acquire trinkets and treasures from across the galaxy. You won’t be buying ordinary Star Wars merchandise or T-shirts at the gift shops, but rather special figures and vehicles (like an AT-AT) built by Batuu’s female Toydarians. The toys are inspired by designs from films like The Force Awakens, Rogue One and The Last Jedi.
There will also be a Star Wars-inspired resort that will a part of the experience. This new resort will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.
