Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction continues strong at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This photo report, with shots provided by our contributor, @bioreconstruct on Twitter, checks out the current progress.
Starting at the Grand Avenue entrance, we can see mountains of dirt piling up. It is presumed that more buildings will be built atop of this dirt to fully hide the rock spires of Galaxy’s Edge from the rest of the park.
Taking a look at the other side of the Grand Avenue entrance, rock work continues on, and a mini forest is being planted on the far left. This entrance will be a lot like the entrance to Diagon Alley, where guests will be forced to take a sharp turn for a big reveal of the land.
On the left is the Grand Avenue entrance, with the arrow pointing at the entrance to the Battle of the First Order attraction. This attraction will feature trackless vehicles, animatronic Stormtroopers, and full scale AT-AT Walkers.
Zooming out, you can see an overview of the whole land. On the far right, the rock spires are over the Millennium Falcon attraction which features the highest point of the entire land.
Focusing on this domed roof in the center we can see the main restaurant of Galaxy’s Edge. This is expected to be one of the largest food and beverage centers at any park in Walt Disney World. The model comparison shown here is featured in the Walt Disney Presents attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The newest construction at Galaxy’s Edge is on the second entrance by the upcoming Toy Story Land.
This final overview shot looks towards the show buildings of Toy Story Midway Mania and the upcoming Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. It also features the recently planted mini forest which will serve as a backdrop and cover for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
