Sneak peek at Disney’s ‘Star Wars’ galaxy not so far away

New Delhi [India]: The much-anticipated Disney’s Star Wars-themed lands may not open until 2019, but a sneak peek has been unveiled.

According to the Disney Parks site, both lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before Wild Space, where ‘Star Wars’ characters and their stories come to life.
Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two signature attractions: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
