Disney has closed out celebration with a new look at their upcoming Star Wars attraction
On Saturday, Star Wars Celebration debuted a new video teasing the exciting things on the way soon from a galaxy far, far away. In the player below, you can take a look at the upcoming Walt Disney Parks Star Wars attraction that should be opening its doors in 2019.
“This project is the most ambitious project I’ve ever seen in the history of Walt Disney Imagineering,” says Chris Beatty, Executive Creative Director Walt Disney Imagineering.
The new video hits alongside an update to the Disney Parks Blog, teasing the backstory of the new Star Wars attraction:
The team shared exciting new details about the story behind this mysterious destination somewhere on the Outer Rim — lying on the edge of the Unknown Regions. The remote village was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer less attention, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe-haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order.
The 14-acre Star Wars attraction will be the largest-ever single-themed land expansion at Disneyland Resort. Look for it to open in 2019.
