Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: Know Disneyland's Biggest Attraction Features + 'Star Wars' Characters Visitors Will See
Star Wars fans are now excited to experience the soon-to-be-opened Disneyland attraction in Anaheim, California - the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. As the reservations for its opening day on May 31 is already fully-booked, this is what visitors are about to witness in the biggest expansion in the park's 64-year history.
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is set on the fictional planet, Batuu. Disney described it to be a remote outpost on the galaxy's Outer Rim, on Wild Space's frontier. It is home to the "Black Spire Outpost" that is known as smugglers, traders, and adventurers who want to hide from the First Order's post.
San Luis Obispo Tribune reported before Disney announced the making of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2015, Batuu had never been seen in any Star Wars movies. So since then, it had been included in comic books, novels, and TV series to make it known as part of the franchise's universe.
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is said to be set after Star Wars: The Last Jedi events in 2017. So, it remains to be seen how it will be connected to the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
In Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disneyland park goers will experience a cantina that serves alcohol to the public, the first time in the place's history. They will also see known Star Wars characters like Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Chewbacca, and experience to ride the Millennium Falcon themselves.
Orange County Register reported an A-list lineup of Star Wars actors would reprise their roles for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, along with voice actors Frank Oz, Paul Reubens, Jim Cummings, and Kipsang Rotich would be seen and heard on the remote planet of Batuu.
They will make an appearance through an audio-animatronic, holographic, and video form in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. However, as the new Disneyland attraction is set in the latest Star Wars trilogy, visitors won't get to see the likes of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, or Darth Vader in Black Spire Outpost. The place will be the home of new characters such as Rey, BB-8, Kylo Ren, and their pals Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2.
Of course, aside from sightseeing and flying, Disneyland visitors can also go shopping, eating, and try battling using lightsabers at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. There is also a second ride, called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. However, it will not be ready yet for the opening day.
Disney hypes Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance as the "most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined." Details about this ride are still scarce at the moment, so Disneyland will let the people experience the battle between the First Oder and the Resistance first in an adventure aboard the Star Destroyer.
