Disney's $1bn 'Star Wars' land is nearing completion

Disney's $1bn 'Star Wars' land is nearing completion

After more than 40 years of the Force, lightsaber battles, and having a bad feeling about things, it's fair to say Star Wars is pretty much baked into the collective consciousness by now.

When someone accuses you of killing their father, you now know by heart that the correct response is to claim that you are their father, and John Williams' score is enough to bring a tear to even the most stoic fan's eye.

Here's the incredible trailer for Star Wars Episode IX:

But what happens when the movies, television shows, video games, and comics simply aren't enough? What happens when you just need... more? Well, then it seems like the only solution to that problem is to step inside the world of Star Wars yourself, and very soon, you'll be able to do just that.

With the acquisition of Star Wars by Disney, there was the promise of more Star Wars films to come, but one thing we didn't really think about was that Star Wars could now be successfully brought to Disney World at their Hollywood Studios theme park.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is currently slated to open in August 2019, and new aerial photos show that it's well on schedule to open in four months' time.

There's no telling yet as to what you can expect at Galaxy's Edge, but a quick glance at these new snaps will tell you that if the Death Star, Tatooine or Hoth aren't available, you can at least take a trip to the Millennium Falcon, where you can hang out with Chewbacca and pay your respects to Han Solo (RIP).

The restaurants such as Ronto Roasters and Oga's Cantina will also be the very first to sell alcoholic beverages, so you can get merry and explain how the Return of the Jedi was overrated and that it falls apart halfway through. Well, I'll be doing that, at least. In addition, the iconic blue milk will also be on sale for young padawans and Jedi Knights alike.

Meanwhile, a similar Star Wars Land is set to open next month in Anaheim, California, where a day trip will cost as much as $104 - rising to $149 for prime time visits in peak months of the calendar.

Well, there you have it, who's excited for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge?
