This week on the Disney Parks Blog, the most compelling visuals weren’t photos – it was a video! A flyover video of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge expansion to be exact.

The video, which was shared during the 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, lets you see the size, scope and amazing detail that’s already being put in place in this new land, which is set to open in 2019.

At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will be transported to the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two attractions that take detail and immersion to the next level: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

  • Anyone know if there is going to be an additional cost to access this part of the park? I’ve heard rumors that on top of the base park ticket price Disney may charge another $80-$100 per guest to enter Galaxy’s Edge.

  • I would like a regular post on the advance of the proyect, including photos or videos, and any relevant outcome to let me and my family do plans for a visit.

  • When will the official opening date be announced?

  • Can’t wait until we get some opening dates so my wife and I can start planning our 10th Anniversary trip!

  • See you there in 2019 !

  • Any news on an open date?

  • I wish I was ON that drone!! Great to meet everyone at #DisneySMMC last month!! @3decades3kids
