At the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, there was a special panel called, Star Wars & Disney Parks: A Galaxy in the Making, which saw Walt Disney Imagineers and Lucasfilm sharing some details on the new Star Wars themed areas coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, which will open in 2019.
Here is a video that was shown during the event:
The team shared exciting new details about the story behind this mysterious destination somewhere on the Outer Rim — lying on the edge of the Unknown Regions. The remote village was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer less attention, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe-haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order.
Unusual characters from across the galaxy have landed here, preferring the “no questions asked” environment as well as easy access to exotic supplies and an abundant supply of ready rogues looking to join a crew for their next adventure.
It was also announced during the panel that the new planet shown off in the the trailer of “The Last Jedi”, will be added to Star Tours at the parks.
