Q. What attractions will Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge feature?
A. 
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will feature 2 signature attractions—Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, opening May 31, 2019, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later this year.

At Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Guests will climb into the cockpit of “the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy” for their own Star Warsadventures. The second attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, is one of the most advanced and immersive experiences ever undertaken by Walt Disney Imagineering, where Guests can join a climactic battle against the First Order.

However, there’s so much more to see and do! Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge takes Guests to the planet Batuu, a destination along the galaxy’s Outer Rim on the frontier of Wild Space. Batuu is home to Black Spire Outpost, an infamous port for smugglers, traders and adventurers who wish to avoid any unnecessary entanglements with the First Order.


Q. I’ve heard that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is opening after the rest of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. What factors do you consider when determining the opening date for an attraction?
A. 
We are pushing the boundaries of innovation and technology with these signature attractions and will not open an attraction until it exceeds our expectations. We also know the level of excellence our Guests expect from Disney and we take that very seriously.

There will be lots to see and do at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and we look forward to the future opening of the epic attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, later this year!


Q. I’ve heard that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is opening after the rest of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. What else will there be to see and do at the new land when it opens?
A. 
There is so much to experience at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! A key design focus of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was to make the land itself a featured attraction.

Guests will step into their own Star Wars adventure and become part of the action as it unfolds around them—an exciting experience separate from the 2 signature attractions, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Shopping, dining and entertainment will also be offered on the planet of Batuu, a destination along the galaxy’s Outer Rim on the frontier of Wild Space.
