Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is still young at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, but when it opened in the summer of 2019, it was one of the largest expansions the parks had seen in some time. Since it hasn’t even been open for two years (and the Disneyland location has been closed for over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic), there are still millions who haven’t even stepped foot on the Outer Rim planet known as Batuu and the smuggler’s haven known as Black Spire Outpost.

The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge by Amy Ratcliffe takes fans through the creation of the Disney theme park attraction, from the first concept art of the new canonical location in the Star Wars saga to ambitious ideas for attractions that never came to fruition.

See Disney’s animatronic Baby Groot in action below. Read More »
Disney Parks recently unveiled their hopeful plans for a massive expansion of Disneyland in Anaheim, California that would allow them to integrate attractions, restaurants, hotels, and more in a single area of the park. But that’s not all Disney Parks has in store for the future of their theme park experiences.
In a recent interview, Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro talked about the company’s vision for the future of their theme parks across the world. It should come as no surprise that Disney+ properties will begin to have a prominent presence in the parks, but the biggest plans that Disney has for theme parks come in the form of technology that will change experiences all the time. Oh, and Disney will reportedly be revealing real working lightsabers in the near future too. Read More »
