Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is coming to Disneyland Resort this summer, and to Walt Disney World Resort this fall! In anticipation of the epic grand opening D23 has revealed some of the exciting new Galactic Star Wars Gear we can expect to see at Galaxy’s Edge!
There will be several merchandise locations to explore, each with it’s own fun theme and design. These galactic new locations include the Droid Depot, Savi’s Workshop, Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, the Creature Stall, Resistance Supply, First Order Cargo, and Black Spire Outfitters.
The Droid Depot is located in the market, and is a unique place where guests can pick parts and pieces off a conveyor belt, then build and customize their astromech droids (R-series or BB-series). What sets this apart from the Droid building stations we have now, is that these Droids are a larger scale and capable of interacting with elements in the land, and responding to guests’ behaviors. Additional programming chips and accessories can be added to the droids to further customize their abilities too.
The Droid Depot will also offer guests pre-built droids, including a C-3PO who has quite a bit to say (especially if you “accidentally” take off his head and put it on backwards!) and a Rex who that uses Bluetooth to play whatever music you have on your smartphone. The shop will also offer droid-inspired products and more for fans of Droid equality!
At Savi’s Workshop guests can create and build their very own lightsaber! This will take the lightsaber creation to the next level! During a guided tour, each guest will have the option to choose from four Kyber Crystal options, which is the very heart of each lightsaber. You’ll have the opportunity to choose from: Peace Justice (modeled after Jedi from the Republic era); Power Control (a nod to the Sith); Elemental Nature (harnessing air, earth, fire, and water); and Defense (shrouded in mystery). Which Kyber Crystal will you embrace?
Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities will enchant visitors to a selection of mysterious and rare items for sale representing different eras of the Star Wars galaxy. Ancient Jedi and Sith artifacts like holocrons (seen above)which were ancient repositories of wisdom will be available along with lightsabers, and more. You may even notice Dok at his desk, checking his inventory, taking calls, and barking orders at his assistants when you visit.
The Creature Stall is where guests can find some fascinating and unusual beasts from all across the galaxy. Guests can bring home a new friend from a galaxy far, far away including friendly ones like porgs, tauntauns to the not-so-friendly ones like rathtars, and wampas.
The Toydarian Toymaker stall will have an offering of items crafted by its namesake alien, from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. The grumpy Toydarian will peddle artisan-style plush characters, wood and tin toys, and instruments that will delight the padawans.
Resistance Supply is a “makeshift” resource location at the Resistance’s hidden command post. Guests will find badges, hats, pins, and other accessories to help them feel like part of the cause.
First Order Cargo lurks on the edge of the Market and is a temporary storage dock. Easily identified by a never-before-seen First Order TIE echelon, it gives interstellar tourists a chance to pledge their loyalty to the First Order by purchasing caps, gear, model ships, pins, and more.
Brad Schoeneberg, director, Merchandise Strategy & New Park Experience Development, Walt Disney World Resort, explained a bit about the First Order Cargo’s vendors. “This is the first place they touched down. They are trying to win the hearts and minds of locals with propaganda and merch.”
Black Spire Outfitters will offer guests the chance to mix and match clothing to create their own unique galactic style.
You won’t find your basic big box store every day Star Wars Merchandise at the Black Spire Outport, everything was created specifically for Galaxy’s Edge. Brad Schoeneberg explained “We’re giving today’s consumers an experience only we can deliver.These items reflect the stories of yore, as they’ve been told throughout Black Spire Outpost. With a vast array of innovative goods” he adds, “[There are] many levels of discovery.”
