On August 21, the highest steel beam was installed for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, a new Star Wars-themed land coming to the original Disneyland park in 2019. This milestone capped off the infrastructure for a 130-foot-tall rock spire, the highest point in the new land.
Once completed, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will include approximately 10,000 tons of structural steel and approximately 200,000 square feet of hand-carved rockwork. The same 14-acre land also is under construction at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Both are scheduled to open in 2019.
