Disneyland opens its Star Wars experience – Galaxy’s Edge

Disneyland launched its much anticipated Star Wars experience, Galaxy’s Edge, at a ceremony in Anaheim, California, with a little help from the film’s stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and director George Lucas. Analysts estimate Disney spent at least $1 billion to build two nearly identical versions of Galaxy’s Edge – the first in Anaheim and the second at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida which is set to debut August 29.Initial demand for the Disneyland outpost, which officially opens its doors on Friday (June 01), is strong; reservations, which will be required for the first three weeks, were snapped up in two hours.The latest Disney ‘land’, Galaxy’s Edge is described as the largest settlement on a planet called Batuu, which appeared in “Star Wars” books but never on screen. That means guests will not see an iconic planet such as Luke Skywalker’s home of Tatooine, and characters such as Darth Vader will not fit into the timeline, which is set after 2017 film “The Last Jedi.” However, there will be inspiration from the films, animations, comics, books and upcoming television shows.
