Sorry, a bit late to the update party. So the roof is definitely not going to be solar panels?
my guess would be no solar panels -- I believe this view or angle gives an idea of what the roof may look like (assuming the grey panels are the last element.)

As I did in the Tron thread, I thought it would be interesting to compare this ride's construction with other recent WDW projects. The prevailing theory on this forum with insiders is that they want to open by Spring 2022. Let's say that's May 2022, 9 months from now.

Here is what Galaxy's Edge looked like in December 2019, 9 months before opening, versus now:

If you compare Cosmic Rewind to Galaxy's edge, the exterior looks like it's on-track to be open in Spring 2022 for sure. The footage and all the vfx work it requires could be a hold up, but if WDW wanted, they could complete this project by the rumored date.

I don't really follow? GE was an entire land, that had all its fronting finished but an eticket ride significantly delayed and did not open with the rest of the land. CR had its pull through test done in Nov last year and is essentially waiting on other aspects, its very apples and oranges

So, it looks like they planted trees in the new front section, does that mean no Xandar spaceship, or am I looking at the wrong section?

Media walked through some of the building today -

"The two setpieces that we spotted were made to look like a galaxy (with pink and purple coloring) and a planet (a large sphere) — both will likely be even more impressive when the lights are out and the ride’s special effects are turned on."

Well it’s awesome to hear that there is some proper set pieces and it’s not just screens. I’m curious is what they describe was in the show building or with the part of the ride housed in the original UoE building
The tour was for sure in the gravity building. The all ears link talks about seeing “half the building” with lines up with leaks about how the gravity building is split in 2 with a giant scrim/screen.

it also talks about the track circling the planet object and if you look at @marni1971 ‘s leaked track drawings you’ll see how the gravity building does helixes around some set pieces

These posts seem to verify the ride itself is mostly complete even though we don’t know for sure. It’s at least in a showable condition. We know filming starts for Guardians Volume 3 very soon. So maybe this opens sooner then we all think? All the insiders have been saying Spring. Does this open before TRON?
