Since Disney first announced new lands and attractions dedicated to “Star Wars” would be coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, they’ve been dancing around what to call it. “Star Wars-themed lands” has been their go-to phrase.
Now, it seems, Star Wars Land will soon officially have a name – Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
First spotted by a Redditor, the name was included in the ‘alt’ tag for an image on the official Disney Parks Blog yesterday when the model for Star Wars Land – or Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – was first revealed:
The code makes it pretty clear that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is being announced as the name for Star Wars Land.
Though that HTML code has since been removed, it still remains on Google’s cache of the page:
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge makes perfect sense as the name for Star Wars Land. For some time, Disney has referred to this theme park expansion as a “mysterious destination somewhere on the Outer Rim — lying on the edge of the Unknown Regions.”
And come 2019, you’ll be able to step onto this remote trading port. Will you join the Resistance or the First Order? The choice will be yours.
Disney is expected to announce this name, and many more details, during their Disney Parks & Resorts presentation at the D23 Expo 2017 tomorrow afternoon.
