We get our first close-up look at the Millennium Falcon. This Behind-the-scenes look at development on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was via the Disney Parks Facebook page! You’ll be to take the controls of the fastest ship of the galaxy in Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, one of two signature attractions coming to this all-new land at Disneyland (summer 2019) and Walt Disney World (fall 2019)
Guests on Star Tours – The Adventures Continue boarded Starspeeders at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland park to discover a thrilling new journey to the farthest reaches of space and found themselves landing unexpectedly on a planet in the outer rim of the Star Wars Galaxy – a planet known to C-3PO, and now to us, as Batuu.
This remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe haven for those intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order. While Batuu may be new to us, it is clearly already familiar to many characters from the Star Wars saga as a stepping off point for epic adventures.
As the Creative Executive on these projects working alongside so many talented Imagineers and Lucasfilm partners, I look forward to sharing more updates from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge as we further explore the stories and adventures you’ll be invited to discover when our new lands open in 2019.

It looks Disney may have prematurely revealed the name of it’s upcomingbefore the Parks and Resort panel at D23 Expo 2017, it appears the description for the image below on the official https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/ has the Alt Code description as “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Announced as Name for Star Wars Land at Disney Parks.”
The stunning Star Wars Land model was unveiled at D23 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center, it’s a massive 50-foot model for the Star Wars-themed land coming to Disneyland Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Based on a never-before-seen planet — and not quite like any we’ve seen in Star Wars thus far — the model is filled with beautiful miniature dwellings and vehicles, surrounded by forest and rocky terrain.
As the master Sith Lord once said, it is most impressive!!
