And company boss Bob Iger has just announced that the parks will open in May and August, respectively, with a new short video also marking the announcement.

- Disney has announced the opening date for the highly anticipated "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" land at Hollywood Studios.

To make sure things stay orderly, ticket-holders will be required to make a no-cost reservation for Galaxy's Edge to gain admittance between May 31 and June 23. Patrons visiting the "phase one" version of the parks will be able to enjoy the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run ride, but not Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which arrives during "phase two" later in the year.

"This remote outpost on the galaxy's edge was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel", Disney previously described of the planet Batuu, which debuts at Galaxy's Edge. Each attraction - and even the land itself - will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before. (Here's a sneak peek at some of those cocktails.) Longtime Disneyland fans will recognize the club's DJ: He's Rex, the droid created for the classic attraction Star Tours, and he'll be spinning custom cantina tunes composed by songwriters from around the world.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disney's new theme park lands, are opening earlier than expected and they're teasing high-tech fun for visitors.

Stay tuned for details about Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Guests can become part of the story as they sample galactic food and beverages, explore an intriguing collection of merchant shops and take the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. One-of-a-kind merch from Galaxy's Edge will include customized lightsabers, customizable astromech droids that can actually interact with park elements, new gear with Resistance and First Order logos and "antiquities" including Jedi and Sith artifacts.
