The force will soon really be with you!
Disney is opening its new “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” amusement park on Friday at Disney Land in Southern California.
It will only have one attraction when it opens – Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run.
It’s an interactive ride which is piloted by the guests themselves.
Bob Chapek, the chairman of parks for Disney, calls it “the most immersive land that we’ve ever built.”
He also says visitors will feel like they’ve been taken to a trading port on the planet Batuu.
Putting together this attraction didn’t come cheap.
The price tag on the 14-acre spot in Disneyland reportedly cost $1 billion.
Disneyland on Wednesday hosted a preview for journalists, complete with fireworks and a ceremony attended by “Star Wars” creator George Lucas and three stars from the original trilogy: Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams.
Another Galaxy’s Edge is scheduled to open in Florida’s Disney World sometime this summer.
