Hollywood Studios is ramping-up construction on Galaxy’s Edge and doing some serious work. Entering Hollywood Studios from the southern entry puts you right along the back of Galaxy’s Edge, giving a great vantage point to the back of the massive show buildings. This past week we noticed the projection domes installed inside of the Millennium Falcon ride while entering the park. Although difficult to capture, we have an image showing the tops of these MASSIVE domes.
We highlighted the dome, making it easier to view through our images. It’s much more apparent in person.
Early this month we received video from an early alpha test of the attraction that was previewed in March at a conference. During this conference the team mentions that there is a dome that will be projected onto that is outside of the actual vehicle for the attraction.
We imagine it will mimic Forbidden Journey at Universal with a rotating carousel idea. This image below is from how the Forbidden Journey attraction projection carousels work at Universal. The ride vehicle travels into the dome and travels in a circle with it as it rotates.
More recently we received imagery from Disneyland’s progress on Galaxy’s Edge from March. We have photos from late 2017 that shows the concrete structure of the attraction, pictured below.
Even earlier you can see a carousel foundation clearly in this imagery.
The OCRegister has a great article with diagrams about Galaxy’s Edge, including this graphic detailing how we anticipate the Millennium Falcon attraction will work. The installation of these domes all but confirms everything we’ve anticipated about the attraction.
Disney is being VERY quiet on Galaxy’s Edge, giving specific information sporadically. Are you excited for the Millennium Falcon ride? Are you excited for the other battle escape ride? We’re very excited ourselves and seeing more and more constructed just continues to build that excitement. Stay tuned to WDWNT as we bring you coverage of this upcoming land.
