"When we finally got to visit Galaxy's Edge last May, our minds were blown and we had to know one thing — who in the world was responsible for the little amazing details all over Batuu? Join us as along with Tom Spina, we get all the answers with former creative director with Walt Disney Imagineering, Eric Baker. Eric and his crew were in charge of all beautiful, detailed props and set dressings for both Galaxy's Edge locations and the story on how it came to be and how it was pulled off is INSANE. Plus: talk of that certain 'Star Wars' aesthetic AND what does a Special Edition musical instrument have to do with an old Kenner mail away figure backpack?" Listen here.
