Star Wars Galaxy's Edge dedication ceremony

Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, officially opened Star Wars Galaxy's Edge in a dedication ceremony at Disney's Hollywood Studios earlier today.

“With the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, we’ve set a new standard for the most immersive storytelling in the galaxy,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. “Every experience in Batuu – from piloting the Millennium Falcon to building your own droid – puts guests deeper into their own Star Wars story.”

The ceremony lacked the star power that accompanied the opening of the sister land in Disneyland, but that is expected for the opening of the land's signature attraction - Rise of the Resistance in December 2019.

The 14-acre land opens to guests tomorrow, August 29 2019.
