Star Wars Galactic Cruiser hotel concept art - Chewie

We’ve known for years that Disney’s plan for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was to make it as immersive as possible, and that they would eventually create a hotel that’s themed to look as if guests are actually staying on a spaceship. We got our first look at that hotel at last year’s D23 Expo, and today, the company released a video that basically presents all the relevant information about the upcoming hotel so far, as well as unveiling a new piece of concept art of the shuttle that will give fans the illusion of whisking them to a galaxy far, far away. Check it out below. Read More »

We love The Mandalorian. And watching the new Disney+ Star Wars live-action tv series has made us wish we could get some of this story in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Unfortunately, the events in Batuu in Disneyland and Disney World’s Hollywood Studios parks is set between the events of The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, decades after the events of this new series. This means that it can’t feature the characters in this world in any meaningful way, but watching the show we had some ideas of how Disney could bring pieces of The Mandalorian to Galaxy’s Edge. Hit the jump to watch the videos.

Galaxy's Edge lightsaber show

Last week I traveled to Walt Disney World in Florida to experience the grand opening of Rise of the Resistance, the new ride in Hollywood Studios’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

rise of the resistance

When Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened, I was totally blown away by the highly immersive land designed by Walt Disney Imagineering. While the land transported me into the Star Wars galaxy like never before at the grand opening, it was really only half-finished.

Batuu’s signature E-ticket attraction, Rise of the Resistance, was not ready for opening day. The ride was said to be such a leap in theme park attraction technology that it needed more time to complete, leading to a later opening date. And now that time has arrived and Rise of the Resistance is finally open at the Hollywood Studios park in Walt Disney World. I have experienced it and it’s incredible. Could it be the best ride ever? Come along with us on this adventure! We have video.

A few months back, we adventured to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland to build an R2-unit droid at Droid Depot. That video has since been watched almost a half a million times, and the biggest question we get is: What about the BB-unit droids? So this past weekend, we took a trip back to the edge of the galaxy, and visited Mubo’s Droid Depot in Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu so that Kitra could build a BB-Unit droid. Come along with us on this adventure.
