Watch Test Footage From the "Galaxy's Edge" Millennium Falcon Ride

By: Dominic Jones

Test footage from the Millennium Falcon ride that will be featured at the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has made it's way online via the WDW News Today YouTube channel.  The video, taken during a presentation, is a demonstration of how the footage can be rendered in real time in 4K (more about the technical specs of the attraction can read about here on NVIDIA blog).  One feature of the ride is that passengers will have some level of control over what happens.  We get a glimpse of this in the video when the presenter demonstrates how you can look around the simulation.  You can check out the footage for yourself below,

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is slated to open in 2019 at Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida.  There will be two main attractions, one being the Millennium Falcon ride featured above and the other being a Resistance vs First Order ride.  Galaxy's Edge aims to be as immersive as possible, meaning that staff at the park will be "in-universe".  In addition to rides and in-universe staff, fans can also expect themed restaurants and hotels.

Last month Disney shared an update on the construction of Galaxy's Edge in the form of a flyover video of the California site.  You can see that below,
