Impressive new two-legged droids debut at Star Wars Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland Resort in California is now home to three new free-roaming two-legged droids.

The droids made their debut today, and in this video from X user Disney Dan Becker, we can see them in action at Black Spire Outpost.

Adding more droids brings Galaxy's Edge closer to the original concept that we were introduced to when the project was first announced in 2015. The land was meant to teem with alien life forms, including droids and other characters.

No word yet on how long they will be around for or if they will make it to Galaxy's Edge in Walt Disney World.

You can see more of the characters in development in this Walt Disney Imagineering video.

I'd settle for the Mandalorian theme song. It makes me happy. :)

I could've sworn it was played at the entrance tunnels.

All that work and you only hear bits of it in the two rides in the land. What a waste.

They don't even use the music John Williams wrote for the land in the first place.

I suppose it’s possible that if you get to hear John Williams music during the fireworks, and there’s a huge positive reaction to that, (“Wow, it really makes the land come alive! This music makes me want to buy more merch!”) then they might be able to argue that it’s worth a little money to change the land’s entrance music to Star Wars themes.

It's just music during a new soundtrack during fireworks iirc

I'd be surprised if it's even that entertaining.

Yes it was announced back on Dec 4th. It was discussed on the 2024 Disneyland Resort Event Calendar thread. Here is the announcement https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2023/12/disneyland-resort-announces-event-dates-and-more-for-2024/

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2024/01/24-oooh-worthy-things-at-disney-experiences-in-2024/ Sounds like Galaxy's Edge will be getting some sort of special musical '?overlay' and viewing area for the fireworks. I think we had speculated many years ago they would do this.

But to kids the puppet was a great size and with the right person really can come to life. I saw dreamfinder and figment when i was 8, and that character with a puppet made me a figment fan for life.. regardless of what they do to him. I think alot of people would flock to see the early 80s version.

Better than 9/3.

Not exactly perfect, as the puppet was about 2/3’s the size of the animatronics.
