Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (Star Wars Land) opens at the Los Angeles based Disneyland on Friday May 31st 2019, and from early word it is nothing short of amazing.
The land which is part of the main park at Disneyland has been 3 years in the making and is one of the most anticipated projects in the Star Wars fan base since Disney bought Lucasfilms.
The land had its dedication ceremony on Wednesday 29th May in front of the Millennium Falcon replica (which is full size) hosted by Disney CEO Bob Igor and attended by Star Wars creator George Lucas, Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill, Lando Calrissian actor Billy Dee Williams and Han Solo Harrison Ford, Chewbeccca made an appearance in the cockpit of the Falcon, after he failed to start the ship Ford hit it to get it to start.
Check out the video below, and fast forward to 1 hour 15 minutes to get to the actual ceremony.
There are plenty of YouTubers putting up videos with two of our favourites FreshBaked and Tim Tracker top of the list.
Hopefully it wont be long before we get to go ourselves, but if you get a chance to emerge yourself in the best thing to happen to Star Wars since The Force Awakens then let us know.
For those of you that can't get to Disneyland in California an exact replica is being built in Orlando Florida as part of Disney's Hollywood Studio wihch opens later in the year on August 29 2019, and there is word that Disneyland Paris and the Disney World in Tokyo are set to get version in the years to come.
And check out the Disney Blogs site (linked in the tweet below) for some good information on the new land, and a look at the new Disneyland maps that are available in the parks.
7 days and counting until the all-new land, #StarWars: #GalaxysEdge, opens at #Disneyland Park! Check the Disney Parks Blog for a first look at the Disneyland Park guidemap to help you “map” out your Star Wars adventure.
