Ever since Disney bought the rights to the Star Wars movie franchise in October 2012, two things seemed inevitable.

One? That we would get a lot more Star Wars films, a lot more often.

The other? A Star Wars theme park attraction. After all, Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida are the blueprint for the modern theme park. How could they not build an attraction that would bring this galaxy far, far away a lot closer?

Well, ever since Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge was announced in August 2015, we've known that it's only a matter of time before this wormhole between fantasy and reality opens. In fact, on March 7, Disney revealed that it is closer than ever...


So May 31 at Disneyland and August 29 at Walt Disney World. Those are the magic dates to circle.

Of course, there are a couple of catches. For one, the park is going to be seriously busy—this is only the most coveted attraction in the galaxy that we're talking about here. And it appears that while the Millennium Falcon ride, Smuggler's Run will be up-and-running, the impressive-looking Rise Of The Resistance feature will open at a later date.

Still, it's happening! Just knowing that is something else! To see what the fully operational Galaxy's Edge will boast to its visitors, watch the video below.
