Before today’s announcement, Disney had previously only released plans for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to open in summer 2019 at Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort, and sometime in fall 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

Iger specifically pointed out the upcoming Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride as a key attraction of the parks, while also noting that it will open at a later date. He called it “the most technologically advanced and immersive attraction” the Disney parks have ever seen.
