For decades, Star Wars fans dreamed of actually visiting the galaxy far, far away that we all love. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge turns that wish into reality at Disneyland park in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida – a step into a larger world that invites you to live your own Star Wars story.

In this latest installment of our “Behind the Magic” series, you’ll hear from Scott Trowbridge, portfolio creative executive for Walt Disney Imagineering, and Doug Chiang, vice president and executive creative director for Lucasfilm, as they share the inspiration and creative mission for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. You’ll also learn more about how they developed the land’s setting, stories, attractions and the smallest details that make Star Wars come to life each day for guests.

Be sure to keep checking back with us here at the Disney Parks Blog for more #DisneyMagicMoments like this one. And may the Force be with you!


  • Captured a selfie together with you Scott on the first opening day of Rise of the Resistance at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You were like a proud father watching the faces of everyone coming off of the attraction. I’ve been on it probably 30 times since, including this morning. I now watch the faces of guests as those doors open and they are brought into the Star Destroyer. Those moments are the future of Star Wars, and it’s really great to see them in the eyes of the young and the young at heart.
