This is the latest Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Construction Update for March 2019. We have lots of new things to share, but one that we’ve been waiting on for a while is the Millennium Falcon which is now finished outside of the Smuggler’s Run attraction in the Disney’s Hollywood Studios version of Galaxy’s Edge!
As always @bioreconstruct over on Twitter does a masterful job with his aerial photos of Disney World and we can get a unique perspective on the land and all the construction projects going on around property
Ok, let’s dive in and see what’s going on in our Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge construction update for March 2019:
Right away we look out over Black Spire Outpost and we see the Millennium Falcon nestled in under the massive rock spires overhead:
The only thing that’s different about the Millennium Falcon this time around, is it’s now complete!
Look at all the details built into the sides of this massive 100-foot spaceship:
I love that there’s a working hatch right in the top middle of it…just like the films! Think Disney will let me go down there?? 🤔
You can tell they spared no expense on this thing and it’s going to be truly special when seen up close and in person.
The Millennium Falcon is going to act as the “weenie” of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, which means that it was designed to be the focal point of the land, and it will have a “big reveal” setup much like the castle appearing at the end of Main Street USA after you walk out of the tunnels and turn the corner.
Disney has built a lookout point, roughly from the angle which will let guests get an un-obstructed view of the Millennium Falcon parked outside Smuggler’s Run. Also throughout the day, Chewbacca is going to be patrolling underneath the Falcon, looking for parts to use on it and taking pictures I’m sure with guests!
I’ll be continuing to update this post with more construction updates for Galaxy’s Edge throughout the month so keep checking back!
In the last couple weeks there have been lots of new details about Galaxy’s Edge including a detailed look into the Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run attractions, and a first look at the droids, lightsabers and all the dining, food and menus for the land which will be available when it opens.
