As part of the ongoing “Star Wars Bring Home The Bounty” campaign, Lucasfilm Consumer Products is partnering with Walt Disney World Resort and Lucasfilm Publishing to give one lucky winner the ultimate adventure: a chance to win a 2-night experience on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser before it opens in March 2022, and an exclusive meet and greet with the authors of “Star Wars: The High Republic.”
In case you don’t know what Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is: It’s a revolutionary, first-of-its-kind 2-night experience where you arrive at a special terminal at the Walt Disney World Resort and board a launch pod to the Halcyon starcruiser to journey further into a Star Wars adventure than you ever dreamed possible. It takes place during the era of the First Order, as the Resistance fights against the threat to the New Republic, but the Halcyon itself has a much longer history in a galaxy far, far away. In addition to the already announced “Star Wars: Halcyon Legacy” comic book miniseries from Marvel Comics, Lucasfilm Publishing plans to bring the Halcyon to other tales in the High Republic era, including the upcoming novel “Star Wars: The High Republic: Mission to Disaster,” which comes out Jan. 4, 2022.

“One of the most exciting elements of incorporating the Halcyon into our High Republic storytelling is that it’s not just about seeing the Halcyon in action and weaving the ship into the larger story, but diving into the ship’s history and its construction as well,” said Lucasfilm Publishing creative director Michael Siglain. “We’ll visit the shipyards of Corellia, where it was built, and get to meet the genius behind this amazing ship.”
In addition to making a heroic rescue in “Mission to Disaster,” the Halcyon will also make an appearance in the upcoming picture book “Star Wars: The High Republic: The Battle for Starlight” written by George Mann, and in the upcoming young adult novel “Star Wars: The High Republic: Midnight Horizon” by Daniel José Older.
By entering the Star Wars Bring Home the Bounty: Galactic Starcruiser Sweepstakes, one lucky grand prize winner will receive round-trip airfare for up to four individuals to Orlando, Florida for a 4-day/3-night vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, including a 2-night experience on a test voyage of the Galactic Starcruiser in February 2022. The winner of the grand prize will also get to experience a separate meet-and-greet opportunity with all five authors of “The High Republic” books and comics.
Two first prize winners will receive a LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series AT-AT construction set, a Star Wars Galactic Snackin’ GROGU animatronic toy from Hasbro, a Star Wars R2-D2 TAMAGOTCHI, a Star Wars | Corkcicle – Death Star Ice Bucket, Star Wars | DIFF Eyewear – Darth Vader 2.0 sunglasses, Star Wars Jedi Decorative Pillows from Sobel Westex Home, a Star Wars Droids Guide to a Galaxy Far, Far Away by USPS, a “Star Wars: The High Republic: The Rising Storm” bundle, a “Star Wars: The High Republic: The Republic Fair” T-shirt and the full collection of “Star Wars: The High Republic” books and comics.
