New STAR WARS: GALAXY'S EDGE Sneak Peek Reveals Launch Seasons in 2019
Disney Parks has released a cool little promo teaser for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and it features a digital rendering of what the highly anticipated Disneyland and Disney World Star Wars attraction will look like. It's like seeing the concept art and models we've seen brought to life.
The promo also reveals that that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in summer 2019 at Disneyland Resort and in late fall 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort. Here are the previously released details on the awesome experiences that fans will be able to have!
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 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.
I can't wait for the day where I will be able to experience this Star Wars attraction for myself!
