Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is the first land designed to integrate with the Play Disney Parks app, which debuted last summer and offers interactive adventures and experiences linked to the surrounding environment.

According to Disney, the app will provide new opportunities to engage with the land, like translating a galactic language, learning what’s hidden inside crates and containers, or accomplishing certain tasks by participating in missions.

Guests also can use the app to interact with a variety of elements, like antenna arrays, door panels, drinking fountains, droids, media screens, and ships.

Oh hey it's you! I loved that segment. That was terrific. What a great system you put together!

shameless plug for introduction to the "Disney Comeback Index", listen to the same podcast.

If anyone's interested in the future of the fixed time period for Batuu / Galaxy's Edge, you might want to listen to the latest (excellent) Disney Dish podcast by @lentesta and Jim Hill Media...

The cast bible for GE is so so deep in detail. Even I found it.... perhaps a little too much.

The IQs were probably already low. You can be dumb and still be a functioning member of society.

I'm all for Bill and Ted's Excellent Land, but not sure that would be a huge moneymaker.

That was my understanding from the very beginning. That Batuu was created specifically for that reason - that anyone in the Star Wars universe could have passed through there at some point, and it wasn't tied to any timeline in particular purposefully. Then...that didn't happen.

Why do you need to "find a timeline"?? Create one. Show me the timeline where Kermit and our US Presidents co-exist...and yet...

Star Wars has countless books, games, and comics to draw from too. I can't find a movie where Mickey Mouse and Buzz Lightyear appear together, but there they are in the same parade. Disney "overstoried" themselves into a corner and should just get out of it.

People on vacation are literally the dumbest people in existence. We were told at Kings Island that the second people walk through the gates their IQ drops at least 50%. Never underestimate how stupid people are.

People were confused by credits? Wow.
