Disney Parks today is holding its Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge panel at Star Wars Celebration and will show how it is bringing the planet of Batuu to life here on Earth. The panel will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Central Time and you can view the live stream below.
Titled “Bringing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Life at Disney Parks,” the panel will feature team members from Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm as they share stories about what it takes to bring Star Wars to life and how visitors can live their very own Star Wars stories.

The booth features one-of-a-kind photo opportunities, first peeks at new merchandise coming to the new land, and more. There are also special “Share Your Star Wars Story” areas at the booth where visitors have the opportunity to record their personal stories and share what they’re most excited about experiencing at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when the land opens.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening on May 31 at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida. On opening day for phase one, you’ll be able to live your own Star Wars story and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, sample amazing galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and more.
And for phase two, opening later this year, will be Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the most ambitious, immersive and advanced attraction ever imagined that will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality.
