There are so many amazing components to this dual coast themed land!
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in Disneyland park in the summer of 2019, and in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in late fall of 2019.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Planet of Batuu
Guests will step directly into Star Wars Canon when they set foot onto Batuu, the planet which is the setting for Galaxy’s Edge.
Black Spire Outpost is a village on Batuu, and it’s the one we will be visiting when Galaxy’s Edge opens. As the largest settlement on the planet, it’s also “an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space.” What were once towering trees now stand as spires comprised of the petrified remains… hence, the Black Spire Outpost.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Rides
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be home to two attractions.
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will allow guests to take control of the Millennium Falcon in “one of three unique and critical roles.”
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will bring guests right into an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance, including a “face-off with Kylo-Ren!” Guests will also be able to enter a life-sized ship — a Resistance Troop Transport — on the way before setting off on their adventure.
Both attractions will feature optional integration with the Play Disney Parks app to enhance the experience.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Restaurants and Dining
Galaxy’s Edge will offer uniquely themed dining experiences including a Cantina and a Supper Club!
Of course, there’s a Cantina coming to the new land! Oga’s Cantina will open in both Disney World’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland.
Oga Garra is the alien proprietor of Oga’s Cantina… and as Black Spire Outpost is set on a smuggler’s planet, Oga is used to keeping “unruly patrons in check.” In fact, the Cantina has a history of being a safe haven for smugglers and patrons hoping to avoid authorities.
Oga’s Cantina is famous for its concoctions — which will be available with choices for kids and adults both — that feature “exotic ingredients using otherworldly methods, served in unique vessels.” Disney has confirmed that the menu will include themed cocktails, non-alcoholic specialty drinks (mocktails) and “proprietary beer and wine options,” making this a first (outside of Club 33) for serving alcohol in Disneyland.
Expect RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid from Star Tours, to serve as the Cantina’s DJ! And don’t be surprised to see Strormtroopers and more familiar faces at Oga’s Cantina.
And while we eagerly await more specifics on food and beverages, we do know that BLUE MILK will be served in the land!
Setting the Scene of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
From the setting to the creatures and beyond, Star Wars: Galaxy’s edge will be a completely and incredibly immersive land.
And while there is no information regarding official character meet-and-greets at this time, it has been confirmed that Nien Nunb — who first appeared in Return of the Jedi as Lando Calrissian’s co-pilot in the Battle of Endor — will somehow be featured in Galaxy’s Edge.
John Williams is scoring the music for Galaxy’s Edge! It is all-new and original, and you can hear part of the score below, and even see construction of the land in progress.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Progress
The entrance to Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is already impressive, offering our very first glimpse of the 14-acre land.
Construction is happening at a fast pace to prepare for the 2019 openings!
Star Wars Hotel
A Star Wars Hotel will debut in Disney World, seamlessly connected to Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios! It will be located on the south side of Hollywood Studios, just east of World Drive.
The experience will be unlike any other Disney destination anywhere. Guests will board a starship “that comes alive with characters and stories that unfold all around them during their voyage through the galaxy.” It will also come alive by way of its setting, with every cabin window offering views of space.
This “multi-day adventure” will also offer guests the chance to become residents of the Galaxy, as dressing in Star Wars attire will be welcome!
The hotel is still in development (with an opening timeframe yet to be revealed).
But there is some information we already know, and much of it is packed into this sentence from Disney: “From the moment you board your launch pod, it’s a fully-immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins and all of the exciting action you would expect from an authentic Star Wars experience.”
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Merchandise
Though Galaxy’s Edge will not open until 2019, you can actually find merchandise available in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios now.
However, specialty merchandise will also be available, unique to Galaxy’s Edge, upon opening.
For instance, if YOU have a certain favorite creature from the Star Wars universe, you might be able to purchase one to take home with you from the Creature Stall… where Star Wars creatures come to life (including Loth-cats)!
This will be in addition to a Toydarian, who will sell handcrafted toys made by local artisans in the village.
