We just recently outlined what the ride layout for Rise of the Resistance will be like if you want to take a look.

You’ll get to live out your childhood dream of stepping onboard, and even piloting the iconic Millennium Falcon. The interior is so real it looks just like from the films:

They may look like nothing, but the number 80 is significant as it represents 1980, the year The Empire Strikes Back was released:

There is just so many details packed into Galaxy’s Edge, and these photos are only scratching the surface. It’s a real shame for the first 4 months you’ll only be able to stay in here for 4 hours, because by the looks of things you could stay days…

That’s everything for now but keep checking back right here at Ziggy Knows Disney for the latest updates on Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge as I’ll continue to update this post with more as the month goes on…

The Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge openings are almost here: May 31, 2019 in Disneyland and August 29, 2019 in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
