Galaxy's Edge stories

Galaxy's Edge

Disney has a long history of incorporating Star Wars attractions at its parks, beginning with Star Tours at Anaheim’s Disneyland in 1987. The simulator attraction replaced cult favourite Tomorrowland dark ride Adventure Thru Inner Space. The attraction’s popularity saw it also roll out to Orlando, Tokyo and Paris.

The ride was updated with new theming elements and movie footage. It reopened as Star Tours – The Adventures Continue within the US parks during the 2011 season.

The franchise’s popularity saw other attractions follow such as Star Wars: Launch Base and Jedi Training, before the announcement of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge as the first dedicated land for the movie series in a theme park worldwide.

The area can be found at the original Disneyland park in California, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, Florida.

A dedicated premium hotel experience, Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, has also opened adjacent to the site in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has also been touted to make an appearance in a future expansion of Walt Disney Studios.
