These seem to be made specifically because of the hotel itself to give back stories. If I have to read a comic book to get the history behind the starcruiser, they've dropped the ball IMO.
Not the first time they’ve done it, they left it up to the novels and promo material to answer the numerous unanswered questions and plot holes from the sequel trilogy they could’ve easily explained in the films.

And a good number weren’t even answered at all lol.

Wouldn't it be cool if star wars had a huge backstory, that millions upon millions of people loved and adored for 40+ years, that they could have used for galaxys edge and the hotel? Man, wouldn't that have been great.

:cautious:

A race we've NEVER seen in Star Wars? And of course she has to be blue because, y'know, this shows she's an alien and not human.

Isn’t she the same race as Thrawn? He’s been in Rebels and I think will be in Ahsoka (he was mentioned by name by her in The Mandalorian)

edit: I see this was already mentioned.

Idk i feel like this concept is just tough. At this price point it needs to be a super high end and detailed HOWEVER its hard to do that and still be a fully functional hotel where somebody inevitably wants pizza at 2am ect. I feel and my opinion here a star wars themed normalish hotel at say a slight price premium over poly or contemporary. Think bungalow rates but its a completely normalish hotel (no larp) just theming.

I said a long time ago that it's difficult to justify the cost of a luxury space cruise far above that of real world sea cruises when the rooms that guests are staying in are plastic clad cabins.
That may say "space" but it doesn't feel luxurious.
Also, though I'm no fan of real cruises - but they offer a lot, food recreation, outdoor air and views - essentially around the clock.
The Halycon is sparce.

I could kind of get them not playing Star Wars music if they went all in and delivered a real living land like they promised.
Argument being that "real life" doesn't have a theme song playing in it.
Then again, movies do - and no one argues that a movie is less convincing because there's music in it.
It's actually the opposite.
Part of feeling a degree of immersion in Star Wars is the music. In the movies there is music, if Star Wars was real life OK there is no music, but the idea is to make you feel like you are in the movie.

No
Disney: "Okay, so we know you didn't love that last one, but THIS will SURELY knock your socks off!"
Everyone: "How does it keep getting WORSE??"

At what point do they decide to do themselves and us the favor of some serious retooling? Because it seems like absolutely nothing we've seen yet has hit with the public. Some execs must be pulling their hair out.

So I am curious as to how much droids will be used on the ship. One of the things that I was expecting was a heavy use of droids - fixed AA ones for atmosphere used to "run the ship", but also a number of puppet ones for kinetics and show to give the ship life. Given the price tag of the ship, I expected to see a lot of them but with promotions not really showing much... I'd like to believe they are just holding it back, but with every piece of promotion being underwhelming, I'm increasingly concerned that Disney is just totally mailing it in. I really thought they would be going all out on this but I can't really understand what is going on with the execution.

Also, one thing I would think would be interesting is if they have some random (not story essential) aliens that are also passengers or crew on the ship that vary from voyage to voyage. Just have some random Rodian or Trandoshan or Mon Calamari or Gungan, etc. just show up for a dinner or a show and not really be a focal point but just be there for atmosphere.

My point, in which I was replying to, was that not only was it not a "new" alien species created by Disney, but that it was first introduced by a character played by George Lucas himself.
Yes! and my point is that it has all been poorly presented for this experience. Rather than being interesting, an enhancement it's the opposite.
