Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek shared new updates about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at D23’s Destination D event at Walt Disney World Resort today. Videos were shown that revealed the two Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge ride names! The attractions will be part of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on opening day at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The first, entitled Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, puts guests behind the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy in one of three unique flight crew roles.
The second attraction, which puts guests in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order, is called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
Chapek also announced that Oscar-winning composer John Williams is creating new and original Star Wars themes exclusively for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! You can listen to a preview of the all-new music, recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios, in the below video, which showcases recent construction progress at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Chapek shared new details about the currently in-development Star Wars resort coming to Walt Disney World as well. From the moment you board your launch pod, it’s a fully-immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins and all of the exciting action you would expect from an authentic Star Wars experience.
