Construction on the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge reached a milestone this week at Disneyland.
On August 21, construction teams installed the highest beam for the new Star Wars-themed land. This step completed the infrastructure for the 130-foot-tall rock spire, the highest point in Galaxy’s Edge. Take a look at construction teams hard at work as they build the new land, which is scheduled to open in 2019.
WATCH – TOPPING OFF STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE:
Once complete, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will include around 10,000 tons of structural steel and approximately 200,000 square feet of hand-carved rockwork. Though there is still a lot of work to be done, eventually the construction site will be transformed into an interactive experience where your choices matter and alter your journey throughout the “Star Wars” planet.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is also opening at Walt Disney World in 2019.
