More Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Details Released for Walt Disney World

We announced previously that there were special announcements and details sharing during Star Wars: Galactic Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  We already shared the biggest announcements that the village in the new, themed land would be Black Spire Outpost and the story behind the creation of this amazing village.  We have also learned about more of the other details for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge that were announced and we want to share those with you!  The 14-acre immersive land is going to be the largest expansion ever completed at Disney Parks and so far it looks like we can expect a lot of amazing things to come from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.


Here are some of the great info and details that was shared from the panel:

  • There will be a Millenium Falcon attraction as well as another ship experience.  The second experience will allow guests to be in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order.  The full-sized ship for the experience is currently under construction in Asia.
  • There is a confirmed shopping market coming to the new land.  There will be an experience that appears to be similar to the purchase of banshees in Pandora.  There will be creatures from the Star Wars universe that come alive and you can purchase them to take them home with you.  One of the confirmed creatures during the panel is a Loth-Cat.
  • Nien Nunb will be making an appearance in the land.
  • The crew will be building two full-sized AT-AT walkers for the land.  The construction of them thus far was shown during the panel.

As always, we will share all of the details for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge as soon as we hear them!

Which of these latest announcements are you most excited for?


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
