Video: "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" Panel From Disney's Galactic Nights

By: Dominic Jones

While the eyes of the world are on Solo: A Star Wars Story (in theaters now), there is still plenty more Star Wars on the way.  Among the reasons to be excited are the upcoming theme park expansions known as Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge which will be opening in summer 2019 at Disneyland in California and late fall 2019 at Disney World in Florida.  To promote the park's opening next year, Disney hosted a panel about the theme park during their Galactic Nights event at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida. 

The panel was introduced by Star Wars legend Warwick Davis, hosted by David Collins, and featured several Disney imagineers.  Among the details revealed during the panel are: the outpost on Baatu where Galaxy's Edge "takes place" is called Black Spire and was mentioned by L3-37 in Solo, Nien Numb will be featured in the park and voiced by Kipsang Rotich (who first voiced him in Return of the Jedi), and visitors will be able to get up close and personal with various Star Wars creatures at a "creature booth".  You can see the imagineers discuss all this and more in the video below,

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is slated to open in Summer 2019 at Disneyland in California and late fall 2019 at 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.
