Last week the D23 Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse event brought us a lot of exciting news! None more so than new details about a “galaxy far far away”, though! Bob Chapek, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products, revealed some amazing new details about the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
When Discussing all of the exciting news Bob Chapek said, “We are currently in the midst of one of the most extraordinary periods of expansion in our history. We are always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible as we deliver world-class experiences and attractions, new hotels and entertainment, itineraries and destinations for our guests.”
And it does seem that boundaries are being pushed in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. While we knew the land would feature an interactive story that will put guests right in the middle of the action, we learned that this will be, at least partially facilitated by using the optional Play Disney Parks App. Additionally, it was announced that John Williams, the composer of the original movie score as well as all of its sequels and countless other iconic film scores, would compose original music for the land! Guests at the event were treated to an exclusive preview of some of the music.
During the event, Chapek also announced the names of the two new rides that will headline Galaxy’s Edge: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
In Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance you’ll find yourself face to face with Kylo Ren as you join the fight against the First Order.
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will make every Star Wars fan dreams come true when it puts you in the pilot’s seat of Han Solo’s legendary spaceship. Here’s a sneak peek at what is sure to become one of Disney Parks most immersive rides to date:
