Today at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, the main stage features a panel dedicated to the upcoming Disneyland and Walt Disney World lands, Galaxy's Edge.
"Disney bought me as part of the Fox acquisition," Josh Gad joked as he kicked off the panel.
There were some new concept art pieces shown of what Black Spire Outpost on Batuu will look like
And on Rise of The Resistance, the reveal that guests will be breaking out of a First Order Star Destroyer.
"If you make it back from the mission, you'll be treated like a hero by the Resistance."
A video tease of the experience was shown, and it was filmed entirely in the attraction space. "No movie magic here."
Specialty lightsabers were teased too, and we're terribly excited.
"You can fully customize the lightsabers, so they really will be one of a kind."
Also, check out the exclusive Coca Cola items that will be available at Galaxy's Edge:
