We have been bringing you aerial updates of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge construction progress in Hollywood Studios at Disney World. We thought it only fair to check in on how Disneyland is doing too! Yesterday, construction teams installed the highest steel beam for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the new Star Wars-themed land coming to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., 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.
As a fun comparison, take a look at the construction progress compared to the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge model displayed at this year’s D23 Expo. The spire is going to be that rock tower in the middle right of the model.
