Star Wars land to officially open on the 29th of August 2019

It has been confirmed that the eagerly anticipated Star Wars land at the Hollywood Studios park at the Walt Disney World Resort will open on the 29th of August 2019.

It will be the largest single-themed land expansion that Disney has every created. Covering over an incredible 14 acres. Every inch of the land will be themed, immersing you in the captivating story and making you feel as though you’ve stepped straight into one of the famous Star Wars movies.

Get ready for an out of this world adventure, as you experience ground-breaking attractions and come face to face with iconic Star Wars heroes (and a few villains too). There will be two new attractions – 1. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run – this attraction lets you take control of the fastest spacecraft in the galaxy- the Millennium Falcon. You’ll be the pilot, and get the chance to steer the enormous vessel through outer space firing laser cannons as you go. Another action-packed attraction will put you right in the middle of an epic battle between an army of Storm troopers and Resistance fighters. 2. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance – this attraction  puts you right in the middle of a dangerous battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

As well as all the amazing attractions, there will be special meet and greet experiences that let you get closer to the famous characters you’ve seen on screen. Guests can already meet Kylo Ren and Chewbacca at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and we’re excited to find out which characters will be joining them when the expansion is complete. There will also be a table service restaurant serving up delicious themed snacks and a Star Wars street market to explore.

This amazing new land promises to be different to anything you’ve seen before. You really won’t want to miss it.
