Aerial pictures show Disney World’s Star Wars land nearing completion

Fans are counting down the days until Walt Disney World opens a new section of its amusement park specifically devoted to the Star Wars franchise. 

Set across 14 acres and reportedly costing $1 billion, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is slated for completion by August 29.

And with just four months until opening day, new aerial photos show construction in its final stages as developers painstakingly bring to life various elements of the beloved film series.

Several steeples and round-topped towers can be seen in the midst of being built, as construction workers create what will be known as Black Spire Outpost –  an imaginary village that will now be an extension of the Star Wars world. 

The development team say they were inspired by the architecture of Middle Eastern cities, including Istanbul and Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, cranes and excavators can also be seen in the aerial images, with the installation of highly-anticipated and technologically-groundbreaking rides.

A to-scale replica of the franchise’s famous Millennium Falcon starship can be seen in construction near the northwest section of the park.  

The land will also feature several restaurants, including  Ronto Roasters and Oga’s Cantina, which will be the first Disney venue to sell alcoholic beverages. 

Meanwhile, a near-identical Stars Wars land is set to open at Disneyland in Anaheim, California late next month. 

However, a visit won’t come cheap, with Disney hiking up their admission prices back in January. 

A one-day, one-park ticket now costs $104 for low-demand days, such as weekdays in less popular months. 

Tickets for regular and prime-time visits – such as holidays and weekends – will cost a whopping $149 per day.
