Disney’s Millennium Falcon Ride Will Be Worth the Really, Really, Really Long Lines
Disney is building a Star Wars theme park called Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. It’ll have the works: a cantina, blue milk, droids, and yeah, impossibly long lines. I’m going to go out on a limb and say the longest line will be at the park’s Millennium Falcon ride.
But it’s chill, because this ride will probably be worth it. Test footage from the simulation was just put online, so you can see for yourself.
It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve watched and rewatched the original Star Wars trilogy; this is a whole level up, brought to us by the team of Walt Disney’s Imagineering, NVIDIA, and Epic Game.
Or, as Disney creative executive Scott Trowbridge said last year, “We’ve all seen her on screen, but until you climb through that hatch, walk through her hallways, sit inside the cockpit, power her up and actually fly her yourself, it’s not quite the same.”
And as we all know, there can never be too many Star Wars-themed things. Really. We’ll be sitting in our nursing home rockers watching Disney crank out new trilogies.
Galaxy’s Edge is set to open in 2019.
