Everyone is anxiously awaiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which could be the most highly anticipated addition to the Disney Parks in a long time. New aerial video and photos of the construction in Disneyland show how far the construction crews have come with putting together the Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon attractions.

The new video footage and aerial photographs were captured Dec. 7 by Rogue Aviation, a Costa Mesa-based helicopter flight school and aerial film production company.

You can see that there has been a lot of work on the “rocks” that will form the backdrop to the entrance of the Rise of the Resistance attraction. You can also see the scaffolding around the circular buildings. These make up the Black Spire Outpost.

One of the most exciting images shows the Millennium Falcon itself, which will be part of the flight simulator attraction The Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. Guests will experience being in the cockpit of the ship, battling Imperial fighters with the goal of bringing back goods to a space pirate.
