SALT LAKE CITY — Disney CEO Bob Iger recently toured the “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” theme park and shared some photos on social media.

Iger shared three photos on Twitter that showed him walking around the park with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, directors J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg, and the creator of “Galaxy’s Edge,” Scott Trowbridge.

“Best way to impress your friends … give them a personal tour of @starwars Galaxy’s Edge! #stevenspielberg, #jjabrams, Kathy Kennedy with Imagineer & Galaxy’s Edge creator, Scott Trowbridge,” the tweet read.

Iger previously called the park “the largest lands we’ve ever built,” according to Deadline. In fact, the park measures 14 acres.

“Galaxy’s Edge” will open May 31 in Disneyland and Aug. 29 at Walt Disney World.

Disneyland began accepting reservations to “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” in early May, according to the Deseret News.
