Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open this summer at Disneyland or this fall at Hollywood Studios. Here is some information about the park, here’s a sneak peek thanks to Barron’s Magazine (via /Film).
According to the report, Disney is trying to make Galaxy’s Edge as immersive as possible for fans. Enclosed passageways will even compress and expand in order to simulate fades in movies. Also, the Millennium Falcon is apparently marked very subtly, and other rides will also feature less obvious signs. This may incur the wrath of many who just want to do rides, but I’m sure those looking for the immersive experience will be grateful. However, this means that the approximate 600 workers at the park will be asked a lot of questions regarding where rides are.
This is not it another immersive experience is in the Millennium Falcon where you can have different stories each flight. This can help direct participants to other parts of the park such as Oga’s Cantina. Speaking of Oga’s, not only will you be able to order a non-dairy drink they’re calling blue milk, you’ll be able to see shops, droids, characters, and stand a lot. The park is keeping Oga’s small and providing little sitting room in hopes of cutting down on crowds.
One cool aspect of the shops around Olga’s is that the merchandise may look different than what we’re used to. Barron’s explained:
“The imagineers visited the archives at Lucasfilm for early concept art. As a hypothetical example, an artisan figure of a familiar character might look slightly off, with the back story being that residents of Batuu have never seen that character, so they don’t know exactly what the figure should look like.”
