Where form meets function

The world of Jedi and Sith is hopefully jumping off the big screen and into a Disney theme park near you.

We got our first look at the project back in July at the 2017 D23 Expo, but the company has been quiet on updates since. However, we-only-own-everything Disney is now giving eager fans a small treat of what they can expect from the massive sci-fi world of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in a fly over look of the site.

As you can see in the video above, the project is still a ways away. Using a drone, they capture the ongoing construction site revealing tall mountainous structures we’ve seen in mock images in the past. Fans should expect the unfamiliar as Disney revealed the park will not be based on a location from the movie. Instead it will capture an outer rim planet called Batuu.

The 14-acre site will be the largest themed expansion in Disney’s history, and will open sometime in 2019. Watch above.

Also, Jon Favreau is set to produce Disney’s live-action ‘Star Wars’ series.
