Disney’s D23 Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort brought plenty of exciting new details about next year’s highly anticipated Star Wars-themed lands. The three new videos of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge below highlight all the new things we learned.

It wouldn’t quite be Star Wars without the signature sound of composer John Williams. The five-time Oscar winner will lend his talents to create an stirring soundtrack to the realm of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The video below features a sneak peek, as well as a look at the construction progress at both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The other two videos revealed by chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products, Bob Chapek included glimpses of the two major attractions that will be featured at both parks. They also give fans a look at the official names of the rides for the first time. The first takes you aboard the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

The second attraction, which places guests in the middle of an epic intergalactic battle, will be called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland summer 2019 and at Walt Disney World in fall 2019. Check out our guide to all the out-of-this-world details.
