Disney has revealed a large scale model of the upcoming Star Wars Land coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios in 2019.

Unveiled by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek , the model is on display at the D23 Expo, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center this weekend.

View high resolution detailed images of the Star Wars Land model.

“To say we are excited for the Star Wars-themed lands to open in 2019 is an understatement,” Chapek said. “All along, we have said this will be game-changing, and through the model we can begin to see how truly epic these immersive new worlds will be.”

The new 14 acre land will open with two anchor attractions – one that gives guests the chance to pilot the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and one that puts guests right in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

We expect to hear more about Star Wars Land throughout the weekend, so stay tuned.

Lets be real... The best thing that has returned all year is the AT-AT misting affect at ST. :)

There is an area across from Droid Depot where you can test and play with your droids on a mat. It is however not fenced off.

Sorry for all the questions Do they also have the area next to droid depot where the kids could play them fenced off?

They still have them

Do they still have the metal gift cards in Galaxy’s Edge? Think you had to buy $100 amount didn’t you? I really want one as a souvenir and will of course be going to Droid Depot

Thanks for the quick reply I’d love to build a lightsaber but with my son being only 6 I don’t see it lasting even until the flight home before it’s broken, so plan to do that in a future trip

No issues with Droid Depot. Savi's is very strict.

The Moles FamilyJun 07, 2022

Will Droid Depot allow 2 adults in with 1 child who is building or are they really strict on it?

Vader and Kylo were the two main villain characters together on stage right up until Jedi Training closed…

Vader and a reconstituted Maul were contemporaries in Rebels.

Didn't they have Vader and Maul at the same time in the past? The Jedi Training bad guys aren't "real" anyway, they are Force spirits, manifestations of the trainees fears. So they can have anyone there in theory and be story consistent.

I feel like I saw Kylo Ren and Darth Vader there together in Nov 2018, but you're right that's before Galaxy's Edge. Did they end up moving Kylo Ren out when GE opened?
