Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in late Fall 2019!

Coming in 2019 to both Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is expected 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."

After a lengthy period of speculation and anticipation, the land's official name was finally revealed at the 2017 D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. Since then, Disney has been incrementally releasing more and more details about the project.

When Galaxy's Edge opens to the world, 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.

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 in a behind-the-scenes look at the land, "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 Hollywood Studios, where guests can 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.

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."

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