Guests can expect to be the first to see other nods to Solo: A Star Wars Story debut at the event’s Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away presentation, and the park’s nighttime projection show, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. And of course, guests will be able to greet Chewbacca, among other Star Wars characters.

Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
