Disney has been releasing sneak peeks of its highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land for months, but nothing will get fans more excited than this newly leaked Millennium Falcon ride video. Just watching the video will make you feel like you’re piloting alongside Han Solo!
The video footage, shared by WDW News Today, features a test clip of the what riders will see as they enjoy a ride aboard the Millennium Falcon. Just from this small glimpse, it’s easy to see that the ride will be pretty reminiscent of another fan-favorite attraction: Star Tours.
Unlike the passenger ride aboard the Starspeeder 1000, however, the Millennium Falcon attraction will make visitors active participants. Riders will be able to pilot the Galaxy’s most-wanted spacecraft.
“We’ve all seen her on screen, but until you climb through that hatch, walk through her hallways, sit inside the cockpit, power her up and actually FLY her yourself, it’s not quite the same,” Disney creative executive Scott Trowbridge explained at a panel last year.
Check out the awesome footage below.
Obviously, this is not the final product, but even in its early stage and without actually being aboard the ride, you can get a clear feel for what the experience will be like just watching, and it’s pretty epic. The Millennium Falcon ride will definitely be the crowning jewel of Star Wars: A Galaxy’s Edge when it opens at Disneyland and Disney World in 2019.
