We are hearing news emerging from the Walt Disney Company’s shareholders meeting that the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open on May 31st Disneyland Resort and August 29th at Walt Disney World. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is expected to open first before Rise of the Resistance opens later in the year.
If this news isn’t enough to get your Star Wars juices flowing, Disney Parks has unveiled the opening date teaser video which features Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.
Along with the official video, the official Disney Parks blog reported:
Minutes ago, we shared an exciting announcement many of you have been waiting to hear – Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening ahead of schedule on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.
That’s right – it’s debuting early because of high guest interest in experiencing this new, immersive land. On opening day for phase one, you’ll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample amazing galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and more.
And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined that will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality. In light of tremendous demand, Disney made the decision to open the land in phases to allow guests to sooner enjoy the one-of-a-kind experiences that make Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge so spectacular.
Get ready to jump to lightspeed from May 31st
