….and there’s nowhere you can see that more than in this sneak preview pic of the new Millenium Falcon ride:
On this new ride, you can ‘climb through that hatch, walk through her hallways, sit inside the cockpit, power her up and actually FLY her yourself’ – where else would a Star Wars fan get an experience like that?
As well as this image of the new ride, we were also treated to an artist’s rendering of how the market town might look. Inspired by the souks of Marrakech and Istanbul, Imagineer Chris Beatty aims to create an authentic marketplace with a Star Wars twist. There are even likely to be creatures from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, including Tatooine selling toys (what else!) if you look hard enough at the merchants.
Everything on sale at the market will be completely in-story, and hand-crafted by local artisans, as well as being exclusive to this outpost.
Finally, it was revealed that a fleet of full-size, authentic X-wing starfighters will be ready for action when the new land opens.
The new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge expansion is expected to open in 2019. If you can’t wait that long, click here to view our 2018 tickets!
