Star Wars Galaxy's Edge aerial pictures - January 2019

Today we have an updated look at the Star Wars Galaxy's Edge construction site at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

When Walt Disney World's Star Wars Land opens in late 2019, you'll be able to take the controls in one of three unique and critical roles aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. And on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, join an epic battle between the First Order and the Resistance – including a face-off with Kylo Ren himself.

True. Except for Rise of the Resistance. It's distinctly set in a First Order timeframe with Rey and the gang. Millennium Falcon could be set earlier because Hondo has been around a long time. You could make a quick update where Hondo says that Han is off on a separate mission and left him in charge of the Falcon.

For me the beauty of Galaxies Edge is that it can quickly be themed to any Star Wars era. As it’s not based on an existing planet from a film or show it allows for any character set to appear.

If you ever have a chance to do Imageering in A Box sponsored by Khan Academy, they legit cover a lot of topics and few of the “promised” stuff that was going to happen before 2019! They show the droid that would had been roaming around the park and a few detailed Disney Imageering blackboard details about the land. It’s like they specifically say, no idea is a bad one, they just shelf it for future use!!! A lot of good inside “public” information such as how they are rides are meant to be designed, with intervals and scenes in mind.

No. We can only dream of that. For now.

Assuming Disney misread the room in terms of consumers’ expectations and desires for Galaxy’s Edge (abandoned LARPing aspects, locking it into an undesired and restrictive time frame) with no easy fixes...is anyone worried how this new hotel is going to be received?

Mmmm... LeFou’s Brew (MK)/Red’s Apple Freeze (DCA)... https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/09/a-sip-of-lefous-brew-from-gastons-tavern-in-new-fantasyland-at-magic-kingdom-park/

The flaw in the land isn't that it pulls source material from the movies made under the Disney umbrella. It's that it pulls source material from the two worst movies under the Disney umbrella in Solo and The Last Jedi.

And on that note... one can "do" the show at Ollivander's without buying anything. It's a small but real attraction in the land. No reason something similar couldn't exist for either the droid factory or lightsaber shop (or both!) where there's a mini-show for all separate from the more robust paid experience where you get the souveneir.

It's obvious they went through Harry Potter and made a list of the things people were buying and thought they could replicate that success despite charging so much more for a lightsaber vs a wand (that you're not allowed to play with in the land), saying you can't wear the dress up clothes sold in the stores and the hit or miss success with blue/green milk...which wasn't even their first or second attempt to do their own butter beer.

YEAH BUT THEY BUILT OR WERE IN PROCESS OF BUILDING THE LAND BEFORE THE MOVIE THAT IS WHY IT WAS MENTIONED SIMILAR TO HOW YOU VISIT THE LAND IN STAR TOURS BEFORE THE LAND OPENED. MY ORIGINAL POINT STILL STANDS.

Well, Solo was released in May of 2018... filmed in 2017... Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland opened May 31, 2019, over a year later. I'll let you do the math on that one.
