Star wars : Galaxy’s edge is a star wars theme Disney park which is currently being built on two locations at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World , Florida. The park comprises of 14 acres of land , on which the construction began in April , 2016 and it is expected to be open for public in 2019.
Walt Disney with the collaboration of Lucasfilm story group designed this project. The lands were decided to be completely molded into a whole new planet . Unlike the planets on star wars film such as Naboo , Hoth and Tatooine the team decided to make a landscape from a whole new planet named planet Batuu for the sake of whole new experience for the visitors.
Scott Trowbridge ,Walt Disney Imagineering executive, stated ” We wanted to build new Star Wars stories, new Star Wars destinations, but this time you could be in that story that required us to go to a new place.”
Disney has released a physical model of the whole park which looks mesmerizing , it seems to be out of the world as Disney quoted that the star wars land “will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet”.
The idea for the topography is taken from the original star wars trilogy and the timeline is set right after the events of Return of the Jedi which will simply portray the presence of the First Order and the Resistance .
One of the two biggest attractions of this park is going to be the Millennium falcon which is a fictional gigantic star ship and simply magnificent . People will be able to climb into the Millennium’s hatch and they will be able to walk between its corridors giving real life star wars sensation. People will be able to visit its cockpit and by powering her up they can simulate flying as well.
The second biggest attraction is that the guests will be placed between the legendary battle between the order and the resistance . They will be able to experience the real life star wars action.
and it doesn’t stop there the developers are going to make a Batuu village where the residents will interact will people making it look like a real alien adventure. The residents will be Toydarian people ( an alien species that was seen on planet Tatooine) According to the developers the village will have all kind of stales such as , food carts , merchandise stales, shops and many more.
The place will be crawling with drones such as separatists and droids such as R2D2 .
All kind of star wars merchandises such as Jedi cloaks , light sabers , drone guns , clones suits etc will be available there as people would want alot of souvenirs with them . The Toydarian merchants will sell you all kinds of toys ,merchandises and handmade alien star wars stuff .
The park is going to be the best live experience for the star wars fans and it is expected to be a great hit as people cant just wait to experience the exclusive Star wars adventure
