Star Wars fans are living their best life. After three new films from the franchise, Lucasfilm announced multiple TV series in the works for Disney's upcoming streaming platform including, just yesterday, one from writer/director/actor Jon Favreau (Iron Man, the upcoming Lion King). But the latest might take the cake as fans will actually be able to visit a Star Wars–based area soon.
Although it's still under construction, Disneyland is giving fans a peak into how the upcoming park, called Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, looks so far. And it's pretty epic. The drone-captured video shows pillars of rocks and small huts. Toward the end of the clip, Disney revealed the concept art for how the final product is projected to look.
The new park will reportedly be Batuu, "a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes," says Deadline. The site also claims guests will be able to fly the iconic Millennium Falcon themselves for a "secret mission" or to be placed "in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance."
However, park goers will have to wait a bit longer to walk through Batuu. It's slated to debut in Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort in 2019. In February, news arrived that Disneyland Paris will spend $2.5 billion developing specific areas based on Star Wars, Frozen, and the Marvel Universe.
In the meantime, there's plenty to look forward to as the Han Solo prequel, Solo: A Star Wars Story, is scheduled to premiere on May 25. Episode IX is set for Dec. 20, 2019.
