We know that for all of you Star Wars fans there’s a lot to be excited about this week. That’s why I’ve collected all of the exciting news that was just shared on Saturday at Star Wars Celebration related to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Consider this your one-stop-shop for all the exciting things we learned about the land on both coasts to prepare us for our trip to Batuu!
When visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, you’ll be able to enjoy classic Coca-Cola products just like in the rest of Disney Parks, but with a special galactic twist…
We learned more about what you’ll be able to do on the Play Disney Parks app when exploring Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and how new adventures and personalized interactions will make your visit to Batuu even more fun, including the new game “Outpost Control”!
“FanFessional” Stories Were Shared:
Fans attending the celebration were given a special chance to record their own personal stories of their favorite Star Wars memories — from experiences watching the Star Wars films for the first time to sharing their love for Star Wars with friends and family. All of these memories were captured and saved in a time capsule that will live inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World Resort, where the stories and memories will become a part of the land.
A Look at Bringing Hondo Ohnaka to Life:
We were given an exciting look at the new A-1000 figure that guests will soon be able to interact with at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the ultimate ruffian, Hondo Ohnaka.
