Here's everything we know so far about Disneyland's New Star Wars attraction
It's no secret that the 2019 opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is perhaps the most anticipated expansion in Disney history. But until Disneyland's Comic-Con-like D23 convention, little was known about it. Galaxy's Edge (don't call it Star Wars Land) is supposed to represent a remote outpost never seen in any Star Wars film. Yet between its Tatooine and Naboo-inspired architecture and towering Endor-flavored flora, it'll feel familiar.
At 14 acres, Galaxy's Edge will be even bigger than Fantasyland, but whereas Fantasyland holds 13 attractions, this new land will have just two massive ones (Star Tours will remain in Tomorrowland); as with Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter, much of the acreage is being devoted to creating an immersive atmosphere.
In the First Order Battle attraction, eight-passenger fleet transport vehicles will "fly" inside a Star Destroyer as it comes under attack by the Resistance. The action will whip you through the giant ship's interior, though exactly how remains to be seen.
