It turns out a galaxy far, far away is closer than you think! The grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort is right around the corner. Before it opens August 29, enjoy this out-of-this-world aerial view of the planet Batuu!
The video, which includes new music from Oscar®-winning composer John Williams, features our first look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge as the sun rises. It also showcases the land’s amazing landscape and rockwork, where you can soon chart your own adventures in and around Black Spire Outpost. Guests can become part of the story as they sample galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops, and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. A second attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will open December 5, placing you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality.
