PHOTOS: Latest Aerial Look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Attractions and Land (August 2017)

We continue our aerial tour around Walt Disney World property with a look at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

First, let’s take a look at the land as a whole. Most of the new construction that has taken place since we last took to the skies has been on the Millennium Falcon attraction in the lower left of the land. You can also see the First Order Battle Escape attraction to the right, Toy Story Land to the back left, and the rest of Hollywood Studios proper in the background.

Here’s a reverse angle of the above photo, with the Battle Escape attraction to the left, Millennium Falcon attraction in the middle, and a green backstage building to the right.

Let’s take a closer look at the Millennium Falcon attraction.

Vertical construction started at the end of last month, and has progressed quickly over the past few weeks. Work is progressing left to right as we see it in the photo below. The elbow-shaped construction in the top of the photo is going to be a mirrored build to the ongoing work in the bottom of the photo. We can also notice what is likely a back-of-house industrial building in the lower center of the photo.

Here’s a closer look at the work.

Shifting our attention to the East, we find that work on the First Order Battle Escape attraction has completely enveloped the AT-ATs and is now moving towards the circular pit.

Finally, here’s a look back towards Grand Avenue and one of the entrances to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019.

  1. The two circular constructions on the Millennium Falcon ride look very similar to diagrams and construction pics from Mission space for the centrifuges. Is it possible they may construct the Millennium Falcon to have a less powerful centrifuge to simulate the flight and jumps to hyper space? Would be very interesting. This just kind of hit me when I looked at these images. Just a guess.
