Fans of "Star Wars" will be able to visit the planet Batuu a bit earlier than expected.
The Walt Disney Company announced Thursday that its new "Star Wars" lands Galaxy's Edge will open on May 31 at its California park and on Aug. 29 in Florida.
Disney had previously slated Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge to open in Anaheim in summer 2019 and in the fall in Orlando.
Batuu is a new planet not yet seen on film. It's a thriving port filled with rogue traders, droids and unique alien species. Disney park guests will be able to explore the planet's Black Spire Outpost and shops as well as pilot the Millennium Falcon and take part in an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance in two state-of-the-art rides.
