After giving viewers a first look at the site last March, Disney follows up with an announcement stating when its highly-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme park will debut. The themed area will encompass a whopping 14 acres, predominantly drawing inspiration from the film’s most-remote planet, Batuu, that is located on the edge of the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories. Disney Imagineer Scott Trowbridge expressed in a panel discussion last year that the planet attracts “the smugglers, the bounty hunters, the rogue adventurers looking to crew up, the people who don’t want to be found ― basically all the interesting people.”

Park visitors will be fully immersed in a galactic world, being presented with the option to follow the Resistance or the First Order and interacting with particular characters. One of the major attractions is a Millennium Falcon ride, allowing guests to ride alongside Han Solo in his revered starship. Another attraction places guests in the middle of a war between the Resistance fighters and stormtroopers. Lastly, Star Wars-themed dining options, as well as a hotel, will be built on the site.

View the new teaser above and expect the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme park to launch in the summer of 2019. Ahead of the Solo: A Star Wars Story premiere on May 25, Nissan transformed its Rogue Crossover into Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon.
