Disney CEO Bob Iger this morning shared a fly-over video of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge construction site from the Disneyland Resort, during the annual Disney shareholders' meeting in Houston.
Construction on the new Star Wars land at Disneyland appears to be several months ahead of its twin at the Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida's Walt Disney World. Watching the video, you now can see the shape of the new land, which will feature two new rides, as well as restaurants and retail locations. It's all set on the planet of Batuu, a new location in the Star Wars universe that fans first visited in the final scene in the most recent update to Star Tours: The Adventure Continue.
Batuu is divided between the First Order and the Resistance from the Episodes VII-IX of the Star Wars saga. Its two rides will reflect that split, with one placing you into a battle with the First Order and the other placing you at the controls of the Millennium Falcon.
The Galaxy's Edge land places visitors into a fantastic environment the combines mountains and forest, and you can see in the video the progress on the land's abundant rock work. Disney has announced that Galaxy's Edge will open on both coasts in 2019, but it has not revealed more specific opening dates than that, nor has it said whether one land will open before the other. But unless Florida rallies to catch up with California, everyone is predicting that the Disneyland version will open first.
But, as a certain Star Wars character has been known to say, "never tell me the odds."Tweet
