Progress of ‘Star Wars’ theme park revealed in teaser trailers
We are finally getting a real-life sneak peek at Disney’s Star Wars theme park, Galaxy’s Edge. A video announcing that John Williams will be creating music for the park also shows overhead shots of Galaxy’s Edge’s construction.
In the video, Williams directs a massive orchestra. To build suspense and excitement, Disney decided to insert overhead shots of the park as b-roll. You can watch the video below.
In addition to creating new, exclusive music for the park, Williams is also the mastermind behind the original Star Wars soundtrack.
Disney additionally released two short teaser trailers of certain features of the park, including the Millennium Falcon. You can get an idea of what is to come below.
According to Consequence of Sound, Disney has spent upwards of $24 billion on the construction and production of the park.
In a story discussing the Millenium Falcon ride last year, creators shared their ideas and dreams for the park.
“One of the things I am most excited about is inviting our guests into that Star Wars universe,” creative executive Scott Trowbridge says. “Being able to see it in person, and to touch it, and to smell it, and taste it and kind of live that amazing Star Wars experience for themselves.”
Additionally, /Film reveals blueprints for the park’s hotel. You can get a glimpse of that here.
The parks will open at Disneyland in Summer 2019 and Disney World in Fall 2019.
