Disney Unveils Star Wars Land Name, Matching Star Wars Resort
Trending News: Star Wars Land Is Getting A ‘100% Immersive’ Resort And The Photos Are Incredible
Why Is This Important?
Disney’s Star Wars Land has a new video. And name. And photos. And we’re hyperventilating.
Long Story Short
Not only did Disney execs use the D23 Expo (a yearly convention for Disney superfans) as the perfect occasion to unveil the name and first official video of Star Wars Land, but they dropped another piece of AMAZING news in our laps: The theme park is getting its very own matching resort and it’s going to be “unlike anything that exists today.”
We’ve barely had time to compose ourselves since getting our very first look at Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Imagineering’s upcoming Star Wars Land and Bob Chapek, the chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, has gone ahead and shared more details about the epic project. Not that we’re complaining.
Joined by Chris Beatty, Disney Imagineer and executive director of the project, Chapek unveiled brand new aspects of the upcoming Star Wars theme park that’s set to open in Disneyland, then Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, in 2019. The two locations will be identical and here’s what we know about them so far following the company’s presentation at D23:
- The attraction will be called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
- All the action will take place on an unknown planet located on the outer rim of the galaxy, which will be home to characters both new and old.
- The park will feature two major rides. One will highlight a battle between the Resistance and the First Order while the other will let fans control the Millennium Falcon.
- The main idea of the attraction is that “when you step in to the world, you’re the hero,” according to Chris Beatty.
- The world will span 14 acres, making Galaxy’s Edge the largest single-themed expansion in Disney’s history.
Not only did Disney’s honchos share these exciting tidbits of information at the expo, but they also unveiled the first official video of the park’s model and we probably don’t need to tell you that it’s cool AF. Check it out below and get ready for your dreams to come true:

As exciting as all of this is, however, the news that really made our jaws drop was the announcement that Galaxy’s Edge will get its very own themed resort that will be “unlike anything that exists today.” How so? According to Chapek, “from the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire.” WHERE DO WE SIGN UP?!

“Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you,” Chapek continued. “It is 100% immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.” Are you having trouble breathing too? *passes out from sheer joy*
