VIDEO: Disney unveils Star Wars land construction update

Last Updated: Thursday, March 08, 2018, 3:08 PM EST

Disney's shareholders were treated to updates on a slew of projects during the annual shareholder meeting in Houston this week — including a look at construction of the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land at Disneyland and Disney World.

The Disney Parks Blog released flyover video shown Thursday to shareholders. Although the video shows the status of construction at Disneyland in California, the Star Wars land coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida is expected to be similar.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is considered Disney's largest attractions expansion. Set on the remote planet Batuu, the new land is supposed to provide guests with an immersive, customizable experience, from rides to experiences.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is expected to open at both parks in 2019.

Fans of the Star Wars saga are also eagerly awaiting the opening of Star Wars-themed resort, coming to Walt Disney World after the parks open.

Disney also announced Thursday that filmmaker Jon Favreau has been tapped as showrunner for a live action Star Wars series, which will comes to Disney's upcoming media streaming platform.
