Star Wars Land is set to open in 2019, and is being worked on right now.
Back in July, a 50 foot scale model of the land was unveiled at the D23 expo in California. “This is the most ambitious land we’ve built to date,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Co. Parks and Resorts, who introduced the model.
At Disneyland, the “Star Wars” land will be the largest themed expansion in the park’s history and take up 14 acres on the northern edge. Disney officials describe the new land as on a planet “somewhere on the Outer Rim – on the edge of the Unknown Regions.” The Official Name of the park is ‘Galaxy’s Edge’
Galaxy’s Edge is being built to the north of Fronteirland, where Big Thunder Ranch and backstage areas were located. Work began on the land in Spril of 2106 and it was announced that last August.
A family disney vlogger Family, FreshBaked, has been doing a series viedotaping the progress of the land, well, as much progess as they can find. They go on top of buildings and look through holes in walls to try to get a good view of this exciting development, and who can blame them? Needless to say, everyone is excited for the most magical and relevant land we have seen in years.
