Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland Park at the Disneyland Resort will officially open on May 31st, 2019.

Galaxy's Edge, the land where theme park guests will be able to join the Resistance in its battle against the First Order in the Star Wars saga, will open August 29 at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Information on how to make a reservation will be available at a later date on Disneyland.com and the Disney Parks Blog and Monorail News.

Phase two of the massive fully-immersive land, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will be opening later this year. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run, where guests get to pilot Han Solo's famous ship (seen above in concept art), will be open on day one in both parks. It will be open during Extra Magic Hours for guests at certain Disney hotels.

This rendering released by Disney and Lucasfilm shows people on the planned Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction, part of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The most enticing attraction is likely to be the Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run. The attraction is said to be long and complex, with riders stepping on board a vehicle to escape from a First Order Star Destroyer, coming face-to-face with dozens of animatronic Stormtroopers, life-size AT-AT Walkers, and Kylo Ren himself.

Guests who want to visit the park between May 31 and June 23, 2019, will need to have theme park admission and are required to make a no-cost reservation to access the "Star Wars"-themed land, according to Disney".

The land will also have several themed eateries and bars and several shops with Star Wars merchandise, including workshops where guests can build their own droids or lightsabers.

The parks will open earlier than expected. "While Batuu may be new to us, it is clearly already familiar to many characters from the Star Wars saga as a stepping off point for epic adventures". The time period is set during the current movie trilogy, which will conclude with the December release of "Star Wars: Episode IX".
