Disney Releases Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Teaser

Disney Parks gave its fans a holiday teaser on Christmas Day with the release of special video breaking down more information about the new Star Wars land coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

The immersive, 14-acre theme park land at Disneyland Resort will officially open n summer 2019 (in June) and Disney World in fall 2019 , according to a Barrons interview with The Walt Disney

The theme park company released behind-the-scenes footage of what guests can expect to celebrate the new 14-acre Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge themed lands ,

Disney officials have described the new land as a “never-before-seen planet – a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space – where ‘Star Wars’ characters and their stories come to life.”

Star Wars fans are excited about many aspects of the themed land, but one attraction making major waves is the Millennium Falcon, which will allow guests to board the vessel and pilot it through space against foes.

For fans of the movie franchise trying to fully immerse themselves in the Star Wars experience, both Disney parks will also be adding a cantina-themed restaurant-bar that is rumored to serve alcohol to guests 21 years and older.

Disney officials described the cantina as “the kind of establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy.”

What will guests find when they finally reach the far-flung fictional planet of Batuu? An open-air marketplace, filled with characters, shops and intergalactic experiences. Barrons cites that Imagineers visited Morocco and even Istanbul to lend authentic detail to the the shops and trading posts, which will be as themed as “Star Wars” movie sets themselves. Customizable droids that interact with the land — Barrons gives one signaling for nearby Stormtroopers as an example — are slated to be a hot-ticket item
