The Force is certainly with The Walt Disney Company, as the upcoming few years will reveal new attractions and experiences (not to mention a significant movie and a TV show or two).
Yesterday, DSNY Newscast synopsized all the Star Wars news and added a bit of needed analysis.
Jack Kendall wrote and posted:
We discuss LOADS of the details revealed about Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Destination D 2018.
Beyond our videio, the Star Wars content came fast and furious througout Saturday, as Disney announced the names, but also added some significant details:
Oscar-winning composer John Williams is creating new and original Star Wars themes exclusively for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!
That construction footage is incredible, as were these sneak peeks at Galaxy’s Edge:
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, will put guests in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order.
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will put guests behind the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy in one of three unique flight crew roles.
I loved the homage to Solo: A Star Wars Story in the above vid.
And of the new Star Wars experiences, Disney Parks Blog added some explanation from Imagineer Scott Trowbridge:
[T]here’s so much more to do at this exotic outpost. For example, you can visit a street market in Black Spire Outpost, shop at food stalls where you can enjoy delicacies like blue milk, or visit the Cantina where you can see an old friend Rex, as well as encounter creatures and characters that are hallmarks of the Star Wars universe. Guests from across the galaxy can experience this new larger-than-life land at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort beginning in 2019.
Adding to the galactic excitement, Bob shared new details about the currently in-development Star Wars resort coming to Walt Disney World. This groundbreaking experience is unlike any resort experience you’ve ever seen. From the moment you board your launch pod, it’s a fully-immersive, multi-day Star Wars adventure aboard a luxury starship complete with high-end dining, space-view cabins and all of the exciting action you would expect from an authentic Star Wars experience.
These pictures were included in Trowbridge’s update:
Frankly, my head is spinning and I am not sure where to start diving in to all of this info.
But what about you? What is YOUR favorite new Star Wars “thing” to be coming into the parks?
