BREAKING: New Details of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Released at Galactic Nights Event

Disney shared a number of new details for Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios during tonight’s Star Wars: Galactic Nights panel.

We’ve all seen the Millenium Falcon on screen, but until you climb through that hatch, walk through her hallways, sit inside the cockpit, power her up and actually FLY her yourself, it’s not quite the same. Here is a photo of the inside of the ship as Imagineers are getting her ready:

Additionally, Imagineers highlighted some other examples of the team’s progress, including building a fleet of full-size X-wing starfighters. One tap on the metal side of these ships tells you that they are real, and ready for action.

In the marketplace in the Batuu village, guests can explore a rich collection of shops and merchant stalls. Imagineers shared a great example of one overseen by a Toydarian, one of the creatures first encountered on Tatooine in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” So what does he sell? Toys, of course! Here is a piece of concept art for what that toy stall will look like.

Inside, you’ll be able to discover all kinds of fun and cool toys straight out of the Star Wars galaxy. Exclusive to this outpost, all these offerings look hand-crafted by local artisans. They’re going to be fun, unique, and completely in-story.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in 2019, first at Disneyland Park, and then at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
