Disney unveils footage of Star Wars theme parks which includes John Williams’ original score

Disney has revealed a teaser of their next chapter of Star Wars with the creation of their theme parks Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. 

The project, costing an eye-watering $24 billion, will be will be based across 14 acres at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, and at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The plans have been in construction since they were developed back in 2016, with Disney explaining that the parks will be a “remote village which was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel.

“Now home to those who prefer less attention, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers travelling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe-haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order.”

The development will see two parks opened next year. On top of that, Disney has revealed that John Williams’ original score will be used to soundtrack the entire park. Furthermore, the company have released two teasers for major attractions, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
