It’s official: The expansion of a 14-acre Star Wars wonderland at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando is set to open on August 29th. The Disneyland version opens on May 31st. We can hear millions of voices crying out in joy.

Since announcing the project in 2015, Disney has been coy about information, giving only breadcrumbs here and there.

Here’s what we know for sure about Galaxy’s Edge...

The expanse inside Hollywood Studios will bring to life a new planet in the Star Wars universe called Batuu. It’s a remote planet where pirates, smugglers, and down on their luck resistance fighters go to hide. Guests will be transported to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu.

Crowds will see the most recognizable ship of the entire saga, the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, as they walk into Galaxy’s Edge.

The Falcon doesn’t just serve as a nice centerpiece; it’s part of the queue for one of two new attractions, “Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run,” where guests will fly, navigate, and gun their way through the galaxy in the Falcon’s cockpit.

The other new attraction, “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance,” puts guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order, the bad guys in the most recent Star Wars movies, and the Resistance, the new rebels. “Rise of the Resistance” is rumored to be one of the longest rides in the Disney catalog, with some reporting the ride could last more than 20 minutes.

Those given a sneak peek of the Disneyland version have said the experience starts with guests inside a rebel base having to make a quick escape in a transport only to find themselves aboard a Star Destroyer.

Disney says guests will be even more fully immersed with Galaxy’s Edge through the Play Disney app. The app will allow guests to translate galactic languages, find out what’s in mysterious crates, and engage with droids.

Last week, Disney released details about cast member costumes, food and available merchandise.

Instead of a sit-down restaurant, there will be two quick service restaurants in Galaxy’s Edge: Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and Ronto Roasters, where guests can try the Fried Endorian Tip-Yip (it tastes like chicken because it is) or Braised Shaak Roast (pot roast with pasta). It’s a similar approach taken by Disney in Animal Kingdom’s Pandora, which opened in 2017.

Black Spire Outpost wouldn’t be complete without cantinas. The Milk Stand will give guests a chance to finally try blue milk, first seen in the original “Star Wars.” Don’t fret, it isn’t actual milk, but more of a slushie. For those wanting a taste of something a little more grown up, Oga’s Cantina will serve up alcoholic concoctions with monikers like the “Carbon Freeze,” “Oga’s Obsession” and the “Cliff Dweller.”

Galaxy's Edge cast members will dress as First Order officers, members of the Resistance, and folks who call this outpost home. Their costumes will reflect the various roles they’re playing, further enveloping guests in the experience of being on Batuu.

Merchandise will include customizable lightsabers, character statues, First Order officer costumes, droids and much more.

Galaxy’s Edge will be more than just another part of a theme park. For super fans of the franchise, the chance to actually live inside the world of Star Wars, even for a little while, will fulfill life long dreams.

Disney Imagineer Margaret Kerrison, when speaking to the Orlando Sentinel, put it best: “I think grown men are going to cry. I think people are going to fall to their knees and start kissing the ground.”
