Nearly seven years after the Walt Disney Co.’s acquisition of Lucasfilm comes Disneyland’s largest-ever single land expansion—and a shift of the California theme park’s nostalgic identity toward more futuristic experiences.

At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests don’t simply mingle with their favorite characters, they live among them while customizing their own droids at the Droid Depot (see photo) and visiting Oga’s Cantina, Disneyland’s first public watering hole serving alcoholic space brews and “blue milk.”

The 14-acre land brings planet Batuu and its trading post to life, along with two groundbreaking attractions: a Millennium Falcon–themed flight simulator, open now, and the multifaceted cinematic journey of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later this year.
