Hey, Star Wars fans – get ready to journey to a galaxy far, far away! As you may have heard back in 2015, Disney announced plans to construct a new Star Wars-themed area at Walt Disney World Resort’s Hollywood Studios and in Disneyland Resort’s Disneyland Park. Construction of Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been underway since 2016 and these areas are now slated to open soon. Disneyland’s area will open during the summer of 2019 while Disney World is scheduled to open during the fall of 2019. This is pretty exciting news!
The new lands “will introduce you to a Star Wars planet you’ve never seen before — a gateway planet located on the outer rim, full of places and characters familiar and not so familiar,” proclaimed Bob Chapek of Walt Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. We don’t have all the details yet, but let’s delve into what we do already know about the yet-to-be-opened Disney Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lands.
