At 8:20 pm PT on May 29, 2019, Disneyland Resort played host to a dedication moment for STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE that included appearances by Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, and George Lucas. Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger led the entire ceremony. Even Chewbacca made an appearance and in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon, no less!

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is absolutely amazing and we are thrilled to finally share it with the world. Now, for the first time, fans will be able to immerse themselves in the iconic stories that have captured audiences’ imaginations for decades and live their own Star Wars adventures in the most creative, innovative and ambitious land we’ve ever built.”

— Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company

Ford paid tribute to the late Peter Mayhew who portrayed Chewbacca in the original Star Wars films. The whole event was capped off in true Disney fashion with a nightcap of fireworks blasting over the expansive new land!
