We are just days away from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Opening at Walt Disney World in Disney’s Hollywood Studios park. Disney and Star Wars fans are awaiting the day they can journey to the planet of Batuu and Disney’s Freeform is making it a little easier for some of us who cannot quite make it to the opening of the new land. The brains behind the long-awaited Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be showcasing the offerings and behind the scenes of the land during a 2-hour special, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Adventure Awaits. The special will air on September 29th on Disney’s Freeform channel hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and will include guest appearances by Kaley Cuoco, Keegan-Michael Key, Jay Leno, Sarah Hyland, Miles Brown, Walt Disney Imagineers and Disney Cast Members, and MORE!
According to D23’s Zach Johnson:
“The special will follow Harris as he meets up with Key for some laughs in Oga’s Cantina and takes a tour of Batuu; Hyland will learn about the tensions between the First Order and the Resistance and create her own droid at the Droid Depot; Leno will explore Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, inside and out, and Cuoco will take a special peek inside the highly anticipated and out-of-this-world attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening December 5, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and January 17, 2020, at Disneyland park.”
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened in Disneyland in Anaheim, California on May 31st, 2019 and set to open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida on August 29th, 2019. There will be a second phase of the land which will include an all new attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. It will open on December 5th, 2019 in Orlando, Fl and on January 17th, 2020 in Anaheim, CA.
The special will air during Freeform’s “30 Days of Disney” which will feature a ton of Disney movies from Walt Disney Studios, Pixar and Marvel. Check out the lineup:
