How many times have you thought about driving the Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars franchise? As the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge approaches in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, excitement is building. On the new Target-exclusive version of Solo: A Star Wars Story, now on Blu-ray, new details have been revealed.
Guests will be able to go on an interactive adventure, pushing buttons and driving the ship. Pods will rotate fully, giving fans a unique experience. Forty-two guests can ride at once, in seven pods.
Creative Executive at Lucasfilm Story Group Pablo Hidalgo said, “Now the Millennium Falcon is flying to our galaxy. And if you’ve ever wanted to experience it – and I’m not talking about a movie set where you see the plywood that’s holding up the set, where you see where one area of the Falcon stops and in order to get to the next area you have to go to a whole different sound stage – the Millennium Falcon that’s at Galaxy’s Edge is the Falcon.”
Creative Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering Scott Trowbridge says, “If you bring back all the loot and there’s not a scratch on the ship and Hondo is really happy when you bring it back, you might find yourself with some extra-Galactic Credits in your account, but do a poor job, you lose the cargo, you smash up the ship, you might come back owing more money than you started with, the bossman might not be too happy and when you roll across to the local cantina the bartender might lean over and say ‘hey, word on the street is your name’s been put on the list of a local bounty hunter, I’d watch out if I were you’ so how well you do on this mission really does have an impact on your overall, land-wide story.”
There are no exact dates for release of all this excitement, but we do know that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be opening in Summer. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland will open in summer 2019 while the Disney’s Hollywood Studios version is slated for fall 2019.
