It’s not unusual to get an update from DSNY Newscast regarding the progress at Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge, but recent aerial photographs give even more fantastic detail to the project, which is resembling an intergalactic outpost more and more each month.

“Back in 2015, when Disney CEO Bob Iger took to the stage at D23 Expo to announce the addition of two 14-acre Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World, it seemed like the wait was going to be unbearable,” wrote DSNY Newscast’s Jack Kendall on Tuesday. “However, progress has been remarkably fast for such an ambitious, immersive Disney Park project.”

Using a slew of photographs from NearMap, the post lays out what we see regarding the continued construction.

“We can see that the tentatively named ‘First Order Battle Escape’ attraction building has completely finished the external build, with all of the attention now being focused toward, as Walt would put it ‘The Show,'” explained Kendall. “But the most notable thing about this latest aerial update is that we now can see that much of the external work constructing Merchants Row and the Cantina has now been completed.

“This is interesting, as it gives us our first finished look at the exact layout of the land, as a perfect overview to gauge the amount of space between the ‘Village Market’ area of Black Spire Outpost.”

Be sure to check out the full post for all the photographs and details.

I don’t care what Jack says; I am getting impatient for a trip to Batuu! JB
