Guests visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, will encounter an X-wing Starfighter located at the Resistance Mobile Command Post. The X-wing is a nimble starfighter used in space combat first by the Rebel Alliance and now the Resistance. Its name comes from the “X” its four wings create when they’re locked in attack position.

If you saw yourself in any of the above queries, this video series is for you.
