NEWS UPDATE MARCH 7TH 2019: Disney's new 'Star Wars' Galaxy's Edge theme park set to open May 31 at Disneyland, August 29 at Hollywood Studios
Disney announced it will open its hotly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland on May 31 and Hollywood Studios on Aug. 29.
For months, Disney's been mum about the official opening dates for Star Wars Land — summer 2019 in Anaheim, followed by a virtually identical land at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando in the fall. Earlier media reports suggested a June and October opening for Anaheim and Orlando, respectively.
At 14 acres, Galaxy’s Edge represents Disney’s largest single intellectual property expansion. The huge spires of petrified tree stumps sprawl in all directions and, using the tried-and-true theme park trick of forced perspective, make the land seem even bigger. At its center is the ancient black spire that gives the outpost its name.
