Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge theme park looks f***en outrageously good
There are two types of people on this planet: those who reckon Star Wars is the f**ken s**t and those who are wrong. And really, whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t argue with the sheer impact it’s had on our culture and the millions of devoted fans its engendered by the sheer virtue of its existence. From Star Wars: A New Hope’s release all the way back in 1977 till now, it’s a franchise that spans the globe and enjoys almost religious fervour from its legions of devotees…
That’s why a lot of people are pretty f**ken psyched about Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge extension. Unlike many themed areas in theme parks, this one isn’t just a rebranding of certain rides and a few actors in costumes, this one looks bloody incredible. In fact, according to GIZMODO:
“Galaxy’s Edge is unlike any other part of the famous theme park. Places like Fantasyland or Tomorrowland are just areas of the park that have similar themes. Galaxy’s Edge is designed to be more than that. It’s designed to actually be another world.
When you walk into Galaxy’s Edge, you are walking out of Disneyland and into the Black Spire Outpost on the remote planet of Batuu, a former hotspot of activity that time has long forgotten thanks to hyperspace routes.”
From their write-up, this s**t looks like the dog’s bollocks. You’ll be able to visit some of the enduring franchise’s most popular sets, you’ll interact with animatronic and holographic characters, and participate in high-octane rides that put you front and centre in the battle between the Resistance and the First Order.
There’s even talk that when you enter the park, you’ll be able to enjoy food, drink and music straight from the Star Wars universe. Essentially, you’ll even participate in what seems almost like a big bloody role-playing game where you’ll earn rewards and currency that have value within other areas of Galaxy’s Edge.
Deadset, check out the article here for a complete run-down. If you’re a Star Wars fan, it’ll give you a boner that could club a womp rat to death.
Final thought: There’s not much to say here except, holy s**tballs, we need to start saving for a trip to this bad boy.
