star wars the last jedi nycc

Although Star Wars: The Last Jedi didn’t host a panel at New York Comic-Con, the booth that Lucasfilm set up may offer an even more exciting glimpse at what’s to come for the series.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi “Experience” took place in the NYCC booth and was made to replicate a set from the movie. While at first it looked like fans could just mill about looking at props from the film and read informational panels about the new Resistance blasters, the “Experience” soon lived up to its name. Fans were suddenly caught in the middle of a brief skirmish between the Resistance and the First Order in an interactive event that certainly looks like a test run for the upcoming Star Wars theme park land.

When Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (aka Star Wars Land) opens in Walt Disney World and Disneyland in 2019, they will offer two attractions: a Millenium Falcon ride experience and a dark ride that will take you into the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

We’ve been calling Disney’s upcoming Star Wars land “Star Wars Land” by default, mainly because it hasn’t had an official name. Until now. At the theme park panel at this year’s D23, it was officially revealed that the immersive experience coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World will be called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. With this news came a number of other tantalizing tidbits about what we can expect from this new land…including a fun cameo from a certain droid beloved to Disney fans.

Star Wars Land Model

Update: Elevation drawings of Star Wars Land have been revealed and you can take a look at them (and speculate what they could mean) at the bottom of the original post.

Last night, during a special preview of D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled a first look at the gigantic, richly detailed model of the Star Wars-themed lands under development for Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

Star Wars Land at Night

We are only two years away from being able to step inside the Star Wars galaxy in Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s Star Wars-themed lands. This past week, we have learned a lot about Star Wars Land‘s highly immersive experience, including how your own personal interactive story will follow around the land and the possibility of a fully immersive resort hotel experience that would allow you to sleep and live on a starship.

A new Bloomberg article focusing on Disney World’s upcoming Avatar-themed land gives us a few new details about the Star Wars experience and it sounds awfully cool.

Star Wars Celebration 2017

Later this week, I’m heading to Orlando, Florida for Star Wars Celebration 2017, which runs from April 13 to April 16, 2017, at the Orange County Convention Center.

Construction on Star Wars land is ongoing at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, but we still haven’t seen much in the way of concept art since the Star Wars-themed theme park lands were announced at 2015’s D23 Expo. I’m sure we’ll learn a lot more about Disneyland’s Star Wars Experience (as it is rumored to be called) at D23 Expo in July.

But right now, the construction photos are finally beginning to get exciting now that everything is going vertical. New photographs show structures that appear to be framing for two life-size Galactic Empire Imperial AT-AT Walkers. Let’s check out photos of the Disneyland AT-ATs under construction below.

Update: Disney has released an official video confirming our original AT-AT scoop. Hit the jump for more info.
