Imagine entering a new world in which what you see first is the Millennium Falcon, the mythical ship that you watch again and again in your favorite movies being piloted by Han Solo. Well, stop imagining it, because now it's real. On May 31st, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge was inaugurated, the world of this saga in Disneyland (California) and covers 5.7 hectares of the park.

It is not just an attraction, because the visitor will enter a world where he will meet the characters of the movies, he will see and walk in the environments, the spaceships and get to know their stories. "This is a lively place, where your decisions matter and you can build a reputation," Scott Trowbridge, creative director of Walt Disney Imagineering, told El Pais. Everything is a journey in which they must complete missions and go through different stages and characters, such as Chewbacca.

When you are there, you will not want to miss Millenium Falcon: Smugglers Run, the main attraction, where you can be on board of the Han Solo's spacecraft and in which you will not be just a spectator, but you will have to fulfill a mission playing a crucial role, along with the other members of the crew, according to El Tiempo. As it is a world and not just an attraction, the whole place is surrounded by restaurants and shops alluding to movies where they can get costumes, lightsabers and all kinds of accessories.
The best thing is that it is not yet completely finished, there are still more attractions missing. In a few months, it is expected to be ready the "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, where visitors can become recruits to fight against the First Order, within a Star Destroyer, a spaceship of the saga," published El Tiempo. Also, in late summer in August, the same world will be ready at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando.
As in Disney all dreams come true, here we tell you a little about other great worlds you can visit in their parks: Pandora - The World of Avatar and Toy Story Land.
Pandora - The World of Avatar
If someday you thought how amazing it would be to live in the world of Pandora, with translucent colors and blue beings, now you can know what it feels like. That's right, the blockbuster movie Avatar arrives at Disney, while we wait for the next films that are planned five years from now. We can visit this world in Animal Kingdom in Orlando.
While we wait for those days, we can visit this extraterrestrial civilization. James Cameron, the director of the film, told EFE that every leaf, every tree was created digitally, but physically it never existed. It seemed real in the movie, but now it has been made physically manifest. You can touch it, smell it, walk through it." In the various activities that you can do, there is a tour that takes you inside where you can see images of the film while you pass through a forest while the fluorescent blue and pink colors surprise you during the walk. There is also the simulator that allows you to fly on the mythical animals of the Na'Vi, and, thus, meet Pandora and its creatures.
Toy Story Land
Or rather, the dream of any millennial. Although it was released almost a year ago, in the summer of 2018, in Orlando, we could not let it pass, as it was one of the worlds most awaited by children and adults. Among its activities, there is Stinky's roller coaster, that of Woody's faithful dog friend. You can also take photos with the characters, you will see soldiers while you walk and you can enter to play with the Martians in Alien Swirling Saucers.
