Theme park fans know that Disney is building two new lands — called Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge — at Disneyland in California and Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Disney showed off a model of the new lands at its D23 Expo in Anaheim last July and a portion of that model is now on display at the Walt Disney Presents attraction (formerly One Man's Dream) at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Disney has announced that the lands will open in 2019, but just because you know Christmas is coming doesn't mean that you don't also wish it would hurry up and get here, right? Jeramie McPeek whetted our appetite for Star Wars land with some photos of the Disneyland version's entrance that he posted to Twitter this week.
And that's a mighty interesting look through a gap in the wall there, isn't it? Fortunately, we got an even better look inside the Star Wars land construction site today, when The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson tweeted a photo of his hard-hat tour of the site.
Today Ram & I got a tour of the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge site at Disneyland, and it’s going to be incredible. Lines weren’t too bad! pic.twitter.com/bUGvR8hn8F— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) October 13, 2017
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will include two new rides: A simulator-type ride on the Millennium Falcon and a motion-base ride through a First Order battle. The Disneyland version has topped out its construction and appears to be a few months ahead of the Walt Disney World installation. For more, let's take a look back at that big Star Wars land model from D23, as well as our other stories.
