PHOTOS: Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Construction Update January 2018

This is a Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Construction Update for January 2018.  Lots of progress for the Millennium Falcon and First Order Battle Escape attractions have been made, along with the 2 Star Wars Restaurants coming to Batuu.

Thanks as usual to @bioreconstruct over on Twitter, we have some awesome photos of the construction progress being made in Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Let’s see what changes we can find:

Here’s a look straight down on Galaxy’s Edge:

Since our last In this shot you can see the progress that’s been made from the last Galaxy’s Edge construction update on the Galaxy’s Edge attractions, Millennium Falcon and First Order Battle Escape.  Both of them are well covered now, and you can see the rock work on top of them starting to take form:

The smaller metal structures going up in front of them will be the 2 Galaxy’s Edge Restaurants, which just today had new permits filed.  One will be a Star Wars Canteen and the other a table service restaurant with a show.  That whole area will be part of a system of tunnels throughout the marketplace in Galaxy’s Edge, which you can get an idea of from the following concept art.  You can see the forms for those taking place in the above picture.

The left arrow indicates the rock work going up along the tunnel inside Galaxy’s Edge from the view in the previous photo.  The other arrows show the massive hills being built up around the border of the land:
