    News Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge - Historical Construction/Impressions

    You joke, but a Podracing ride using a re-themed Radiator Springs Racers as a basis could be awesome.

    Pretty sure William's GE suite plays as guests exit Savi's as well.

    So what changes will we see at DHS GE based on DL GE?

    That's a stretch. The exact quote is: "Let's get to cruising altitude with a tribute to the song that swept the galaxy." There's no hidden meaning or intention behind it.

    Ordinary Adventures did a video of a Falcon run where nobody touched a control the entire time. It shows that if you don't do something necessary to progress the ride then the ride will take over and just do it for you. I get it, if my first Falcon ride is a 5 year old piloting and the ride...

    We've been through this before, that's not true. The Falcon is fully capable of firing from the cockpit alone as evidenced by Han and Chewie both being in the cockpit when they return to the Death Star to shoot Vader's TIE escorts in ANH. It makes sense that targeting/functionality is limited...

    Would a 15-20 second sequence where the Falcon breaks down and is sitting dead in the water (space), requiring engineers to engage to fix the ship and gunners to defend the ship help? Pilots would just be sitting back and watching, but it's not far off from something that could happen in the...

    I understand the hair not having the same sheen as it has to stand up to everyday use with the general public. But the mouth/lips are way off, and I can't see a good reason for that.

    Who’s going to Galaxy’s Edge and when?

    Castmember previews at Disneyland were May 20-27 before an opening (to reservations) on May 31. Castmember previews at Hollywood Studios are August 1-16. If they take the same break the AP previews would start August 20th. I'm hoping they don't take that break for you @Texas84

    Disney’s not contractually obligated to play John Williams music throughout the land. They are contractually obligated to serve Coke. That said, while I’m a fan of the level of immersion I would not mind hearing more Williams score throughout the land.

    I get Williams music not being used throughout the land for the reasons @peter11435 outlined. However, they should totally be pumping in diegetic music throughout the land.

    All of the droids should’ve been fully animatronic like that. I understand some can move when you hack them via the Disney Play app, but that’s not enough. They should be active at all times.

    I, and others, have made plenty of positive posts about the land. The difference is for some reason the negative feedback has to be reposted over and over again. And I agree with most of the constructive criticism. Just don’t feel the need to beat that horse repeatedly.

    I love (and share) this sentiment. But it is generally not expressed as positively as you outline. There's a big difference between "GE is a failure, and an X-Wing coaster would've saved it" and "GE has potential, I'd like to see a ride like an X-Wing coaster added." These are of course not...
