We just got a sneak peek at the most highly anticipated attraction ever – Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Today during the Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade special we got this look at the new land coming to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World in 2019.

We can’t wait for Star Wars: Galaxy Edge. For more insight into what we can expect.

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

Earlier this year we gave you first in-ride image from Millennium Falcon flight simulator attraction.

The technology firm NVIDIA revealed the very first in-ride image from the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’s highly-anticipated Millennium Falcon flight simulator attraction, along with some new details about the tech that is going into the ride currently under construction on both coasts by Walt Disney Imagineering in cooperation with NVIDIA, Epic Games, and Lucasfilm’s immersive entertainment department ILMxLAB.

When it launches, riders will enter a cockpit powered with a single BOXX chassis packed with eight high-end NVIDIA Quadro P6000 GPUs, connected via Quadro SLI.

Quadro Sync synchronizes five projectors for the creation of dazzling ultra-high resolution, perfectly timed displays to fully immerse the riders in the word of planet Batuu.

Working with NVIDIA and Epic Games, the Imagineering team created a custom multi-GPU implementation for Unreal Engine. This new code was returned to the Epic Games team and will help influence how multi-GPUs function for their engine.

If any of that sounds like Greek to you, don’t worry: you’re not alone. The technological advances going into this sure-to-be-state-of-the-art attraction may be beyond the comprehension of laymen like myself, but it’s nice to know Disney is taking out all the stops in putting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge together.

As we bring all of these details together there is no doubt this will be an epic adventure. We also know that this ride will incorporate the Play Disney Parks app. This will allow the adventure to start or end outside of the confines of the physical ride itself.

When you consider the quality of previous rides such as Avatar’s Flight of Passage and then consider that this ride will be superior to that experience it is no wonder so many of us can’t wait.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

As the video preview states, this second attraction will become the most epic attraction ever built.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will let guests join in on an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Facing off against Kyle Ren guests will become part of the Resistance’s struggle against the First Order. Similar to Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run the attraction pairs with the land’s interactive components and integrates with the Play Disney Parks app.
