Big Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Update Including a Preview of John Williams Music!


At today’s D23’s Destination D event that was held at the Disney World Resort, some big reveals were released pertaining to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge by Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman Bob Chapek. We get news of two rides that will be at the park including Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The biggest news might be the above video, which features our first listen to music composed for the park by the legendary John Williams.

You can also check out our first look at Hondo Ohnaka via concept art below.

Here is a preview of the new ride…
