While it is not scheduled to open until later this year (Summer at Disneyland, Fall at Walt Disney World), select members of the media were recently given a sneak preview of Disney's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Set during the battle between the First Order and the Resistance, guests will travel to the Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, one of the two main attractions, will send groups of six (two pilots, two gunners and two flight engineers) on a mission for Hondo Onaka, and your results (good or bad), will follow you throughout the land. Rise Of The Resistance, Disney's longest ride, will see guests captured and taken aboard a massive Star Destroyer, including full size TIE Fighters and AT-AT's The ride will also feature John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Issac,and Daisy Ridey portraying their characters from the films. In addition to the rides, there will as be a number of restaurants and shops dealing in in-universe wares. For drinks, specifically alcoholic ones, there's Oga's Cantina, which will features drinks with names like the Fuzzy Tauntaun, Dagobah Slug Slinger, Bloody Rancor and Bespin Fizz, as well as music from DJ R-3X, "otherwise known as Rex, the former Starspeeder 3000 pilot droid from the original Star Tours in Disneyland).You'll also be able to try such dishes as the Smoked Kaadu Ribs sold at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, and the Sour Sarlaac, a drink sold at Ronto Roasters. From the Toydarian Toymaker'and Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, to Savi’s Workshop, and the Droid Depot, the merchandise from Galaxy's Edge is made to have an in-universe feel. "Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be the first area within the Disney park designed to fully integrate with the Play Disney Parks mobile app, which... will allow guests to find secrets and Easter eggs strewn throughout the land, such as translating a galactic language, participating in smaller side missions and learning about hidden treasures inside crates and containers. The app will also allow guests to interact with the droids roaming around, as well as ships, display screens and even drinking fountains. Disney cast members (park staff) will also be a large part of the land. They will all have newly designed costumes, which we previewed, and they will have character backstories to better interact in the world with guests. One of the more interesting parts of the costume aspect is that the staff will get to choose their ensemble from a large array of options. They will be allowed to mix and match some looks to give their own unique style."(Sources: Hollywood Reporter and StarWars.com)
