Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World on August 29, 2019!!

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is now open at Disneyland Park! Visit that page for a look at the completed land, plus even more articles and videos.



Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Overview

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is said to be Disney's most immersive theme park land to date. Imagineers and executives have touted detailed story elements and theming that they promise will please lifelong fans of the Star Wars franchise while welcoming and enticing newcomers to the "galaxy far far away." The new 14-acre land has already opened at Disneyland Park and is set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on August 29, 2019.

When guests enter Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, guests will find themselves on the remote planet of Batuu. Rather than develop a land around any of the franchise's previously established settings, Disney has created a brand-new world that will have its own unique place in Star Wars history. This unique setting will offer a genuine Star Wars experience where even the biggest fans can discover some special “hidden gems” and familiar details.

Batuu's story line is primed for Star Wars-style adventure. A home to smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers, Batuu's glory days as a major spaceport ended after the creation of hyperspace travel. Now on the outskirts of civilization, the planet is perfect for those looking to get out from under the First Order's thumb. Even on Batuu, though, guests will still see the ever-encroaching presence of the oppressive First Order, as well as the Resistance who struggles to oppose them.

Carrie Beck, VP of Lucasfilm Story Group, said, "It's not Star Wars without the 'war,' so it was absolutely fundamental that the story of the land actually finds the guest between the Resistance and the First Order."

Walt Disney World's Galaxy's Edge will also lie adjacent to an accompanying Star Wars-themed deluxe resort "seamlessly connected" to Disney's Hollywood Studios, where guests will be able to increase their immersion even more with wall-to-wall theming and story elements.

Upcoming Attractions

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

The first attraction announced for Galaxy's Edge gives guests the chance to live out the dream of every Star Wars fan: piloting the Millenium Falcon.

Chewbacca has flown the Falcon to the Black Spire Outpost for repairs. In exchange for needed parts, Chewie has loaned the ship to smuggler Hondo Ohnaka for a mission which turns out to be the focus of the attraction. Hondo is a Weequay pirate who is always looking for the next big opportunity. Hondo runs Ohnaka Transport Solutions, a "legitimate business" on Batuu. He asks for help from guests as he has more cargo than he can handle and needs extra flight crews...especially those that won't ask a lot of questions.

You’ll be immersed into this adventure before you even step inside the cockpit. Guests will board the Falcon through an access hatch on the starboard airlock, then spend some time in the lounge where they can sit at the infamous Dejarik table or check out the ship's equipment. 

Smugglers Run will see groups of guests set foot in the iconic starship for an epic adventure, each member assigned specific roles — including pilots, gunners, and flight enigineers — that are crucial to arriving safely at their destination. How well these amateur smugglers perform matters, as they will earn "galactic credits." If you bring back the Millennium Falcon “banged up” at the end of your mission you’ll wind up on the list of a bounty hunter; if you end up on Harkos’s list you won’t want to head to the local cantina, or else you might face a big problem there — or so we hear.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

On Rise of the Resistance, guests will find themselves as recruits of the Resistance on a dangerous mission that puts them in direct conflict with the forces of the First Order and Kylo Ren himself. This attraction will be built on a scale that guests haven’t seen before in a Disney theme park, with Walt Disney Imagineering's Scott Trowbridge calling Rise of the Resistance "the most epic attraction [they've] ever built."

"When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren."

Note: The Rise of the Resistance attraction will not open August 29, 2019 with the rest of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, but will open later on December 5, 2019.

The teaser trailer for the new ride (included below) is actual footage from the Rise of the Resistance attraction.

The signature dish here is the Ronto Wrap with is similar to a roasted pork and grilled sausage. The signature drink is the Tatooine Sunset, which tastes like a mix of iced tea and lemonade.
