“From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story”, Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said in the announcement.
Disney confirmed the news in a release as part of its new Disney 360 vacation concept.
“Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two signature attractions: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customised secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance”.
Some new Star Wars: The Last Jedi character posters have made their way online and I can say is that these new posters look just like the ones from the Matrix Reloaded or is just me? The idea is to fulfil every minute of your day, giving you lot’s of activity and a fully immersive holiday experience.
It’ll be a long trip for Californians, however, as Walt Disney World appears to be the only park offering the experience.
Or, as Bryan Bishop of The Verge describes it, “Disney wants to build a ‘Westworld’ for ‘Star Wars’ fans”.
Breaking down the synopsis, it appears evident that The Last Jedi will center around Luke Skywalker’s (Mark Hamill) legacy, or might even focus on his passing of the torch to fellow Force-sensitive fighter Rey (Daisy Ridley).
We also get to see John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and the late Carrie Fisher on set, with a sneak peak at new cast members Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro. For example, one guest will be piloting, another will be shooting blasters, and another will be preparing for hyperspace. He said that Galaxy’s Edge would be more than just a themed land; it would be a whole new planet. Disney recently came up with trailers upon trailers of all the new experiences they are going to bring to you.
