Disney unveil new footage of ‘Star Wars’ theme park in John Williams-scored teaser

The film composer is providing music for the Galaxy's Edge sites

Disney have shared a new teaser clip for their Star Wars theme park, which includes a sneak-peak of the attraction itself.

Details of the parks – set to open in 2019 – were announced last year. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be based across 14 acres at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, and at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. In December 2017, creators gave fans a glimpse of the site’s Millennium Falcon.

Now, it has been revealed that longtime film composer John Williams will create music to be played at the theme park. During the new clip, aerial shots showing the attraction under construction are cut with a performance of Williams’ title theme. Check out the video below.

The opening of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge parks will coincide with the release of Star Wars Episode 9. The upcoming movie will be the final instalment of the current film trilogy. 

In April last year, a teaser shared details of a “remote village” that will form part of the parks. It said: “The remote village was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel.

“Now home to those who prefer less attention, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers travelling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe-haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order.”

Meanwhile, Disney recently confirmed that their new streaming service will feature a Rogue One prequel series.
