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.

droid building in galaxy edge

A few months back, we adventured to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland to build an R2-unit droid at Droid Depot.

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.

galaxy's edge soundtrack

If I were to ask you to tell me the first piece of music you think of when you think about Star Wars, there may be a half a dozen John Williams cues that would be fighting for the top spot. But when it comes to in-world music from the Star Wars galaxy, there isn’t nearly as much to dig into.

The most famous track has to be the song playing when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first enter the Mos Eisley cantina, and now that song has gotten a remixed version that’s playing in Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The theme park land’s soundtrack will be available tomorrow, but you can listen to the remixed version of your favorite cantina jam below right now.
