Harrison Ford's Dedication to Peter Mayhew at 'Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge' Theme Park Opening
“Peter … this one’s for you!” were the words Harrison Ford dedicated to the late Peter Mayhew at the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
Galaxy's Edge is a billion-dollar Star Wars themed park at Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida, encompassing 14 acres in each park. The lands were announced on August 15, 2015 and construction at both parks began on April 14, 2016. The Disneyland version opens to the public today, with the Disney World location opening on August 29, 2019.
Ford dedicated the opening to Mayhew, who played his trusty sidekick Chewy throughout the ‘Star Wars’ franchise and recently passed away on April 30th, accompanied by George Lucas, Billy Dee Williams, Bob Iger, and Mark Hamill.
