Disney Parks gave Star Wars fans one of the best holiday gifts this year, a close look at Galaxy’s Edge.
This behind the scenes look covers characters, buildings, attractions, and answers the one major question I’ve had about the type of guest experience we can expect aboard Han Solo’s iconic starship: what exactly will I get to DO?!
The experience on Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run puts you straight in that cockpit, right behind the controls. Whether you are one of the pilots or gunners or flight engineers that are keeping the ship operating it is going to be an intense, super fun experience on the fastest ship in the galaxy. – Scott Trowbridge, Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering
The second of the two attractions we will get to hop on is being described by Trowbridge as “the most epic attraction we’ve ever built.” Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will allow our dreams of being a resistance fighter come true by dropping us into a battle with the First Order and making us come face-to-face with Kylo Ren. I’m hoping my petition to have him shirtless arrived in time. Thankfully I won’t have too much longer to wait to find out!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens summer 2019 at Disneyland Resort and fall 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort.
