When I first saw the concept art for the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land in Disneyland, I was blow away at how expansive and daring it was. Take a look at how this baby is coming together.
Look, I get that it’s just a bunch of scaffolding, rock formations, and not a lot else right now but this impresses the hell out of me. The scope of this is incredible and forgive me if I’m wrong but it looks centered on Tom Sawyer’s Island. Is this the end of Fantasmic?
Every inch of the estimated 14 acres of land used for this world is being utilized. You can see the concept coming together before your very eyes. I am absolutely impressed! This thing is only starting to take shape and I'm dying to visit it. As of now there are still the only two confirmed rides:
The millennium Falcon ride, where you actually get ranked by how well you perform. (I love the interactivity of rides nowadays. They sure have evolved from the grab a metal ring and throw it at the hole in the wall carousel rides of yore eh?
Another one where guests are inside a star destroyer hangar bay during an immense battle between the Resistance and the First Order.
While the land filmed in this video is specifically Disneyland they are building Batuu at both their Disneyland and Disneyworld parks. So no one feels left out, that’s so Disney! J
