This week, we shared an exciting update on the progress of the Star Wars-themed lands being created at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. Disney Parks Blog readers were among the first to see an exclusive video showing how things are shaping up.

As we’ve shared, the Star Wars-themed lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action.

Our Star Wars-themed lands are scheduled to open in 2019. You can read about the latest updates in George’s original story. Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more updates as work progresses on each of these galactic lands.
