A short time from now on a television network not so far away…

To celebrate the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Freeform will be airing a two-hour all-star special, “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Adventure Awaits” on Sunday, September 29th at 8 PM Eastern. D23 revealed that the special will be part of the network’s “30 Days of Disney,” airing all through the month of September.

The show will reportedly take a “behind-the-scenes” look at the new lands in both California and Florida. The official description, from D23’s Zach Johnson:

Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, the immersive and exclusive television event will invite audiences to explore the epic new lands and learn more about how this new planet of Batuu came to life. With celebrity guests including Kaley Cuoco, Keegan-Michael Key, Jay Leno, Sarah Hyland, Miles Brown, and more, Walt Disney Imagineers and Disney cast members will share how they brought Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life with fascinating insider details.

The special will follow Harris as he meets up with Key for some laughs in Oga’s Cantina and takes a tour of Batuu; Hyland will learn about the tensions between the First Order and the Resistance and create her own droid at the Droid Depot; Leno will explore Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, inside and out, and Cuoco will take a special peek inside the highly anticipated and out-of-this-world attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening December 5, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and January 17, 2020, at Disneyland park.
