I’ve never been. Of course, opinions are subjective but I think saying “are you going to listen to people on an internet fan forum?” isn’t really a fair assessment of most of the folks who contribute to this forum.
I didn't mean to dismiss this thread opinions but lately I've been noticing too many people wanting others to think or decide for them instead coming to their own conclusions.

Correct, like I said Rian Johnson's trilogy and Benioff and Weiss' series are meant to be separate from the Skywalker saga. IX is meant to end the Skywalker saga. But...
  1. George said ROTJ was the end of the Skywalker story for decades, and look where we are now
  2. At Celebration 2017 Kathleen Kennedy said they are exploring options to further Rey/Finn/Poe's stories past IX. They're not Skywalkers but they are connected to the Skywalker saga and thus GE.
No, not necessarily. Again, Galaxy's Edge is meant to be set between TLJ and IX, not after IX.

Even then - there are some (potential) inconsistencies besides Kylo's helmet. The Falcon's rectangular dish was lost in TLJ and Poe's black X-Wing was blown up in TLJ. They could've replaced both 1:1, but...

credible leaks say the Falcon has a triangular dish and an orange X-Wing was seen filming in London, could be Poe's replacement.
I understand that but as I said to Irish bruh, Kylo going good or dying in Ep 9 would hurt the attraction as the present trilogy is so present in our consciousness at the moment. I don’t see them dropping the ball there. It’s different than a triangular dish on a spaceship.

I just interpret us as a bunch of passionate/ knowledgeable fans that have experience and like to express our opinion. I really don’t think the majority of us care what anyone does with our opinion. You may see it a different way. I’m pretty sure @BrianLo could care less if someone rides Gringotts or not.

Well not necessarily. There is only one episode left in the Skywalker saga. So if Episode 9 doesn’t really alter what they have going on in Galaxies Edge then they re kind of in the clear.
The question will be if these characters go beyond EP9. Rey, Poe, and Finn likely will. Kylo maybe, we'll see. So if Kylo continues beyond EP9 they'll likely have to update the land to remain in continuity, or else unofficially say the land is stuck in pre-EP9 continuity.

Yeah. I was under the impression that all of the characters “died” with Ep 9

I doubt it. But we'll see. And if they do all die at the end of EP9, then what about the attractions with their references? They really going to update it a couple months after opening to remove them?

The land isn’t set at a present day time in the Star Wars universe. It appears it’s set between episodes 8/9, as it’s the only way the First Order can have such a reign throughout the Galaxy and the current lineup of characters to be at the postionions they are in (ie Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo).

Indeed. Everyone (if able) should ride it.

I'm just passionate and think Gringott's gets a pass because it is attached to easily a top 5 land, has a banging queue scene and has some pretty nifty ride tech.

But everything that is wrong with Universal Creative is on display in Gringott's. It has long been the canary in the coal mine that quite literally delivered unto us Drupercharger.

Imagineering seems to have a different problem. An A team, B team and C team... who get A-team concepts and C-team concepts.

UC just seems to have a B-team and a really good partnership with Warner Brother's set designers. I want the set designers to design a ride. They might, finally, be getting better.

Well then the timetable is set on those characters. I just think it’s odd to have the land set between 8 and 9 when you have everything coming to an end very soon. However, they know stuff we don’t and maybe that’s just not possible.... like Kylo being alive. I just think it would be kind of weak to have the headlining attraction built around a character set to die in a few months.

Okay, but it’s gotta be one of those options. He’s gotta die, be redeemed, or both in IX, and I can guarantee he’s not gonna do any of those things in the ride.

It’s the nature of attractions that tie into movies. Some encompass the whole movie (Snow White, Pinocchio), some are set in an alternate version of the movie (Gringotts, Transformers), and some are set in a specific timeline during or between films (Radiator Springs Racers, Star Tours 2’s original sequences). Rise is an example of the latter.

Doc isn’t alive during the second and third Cars movies, but he’s still in the ride. The same with Star Tours 2, which has Vader alive and kicking since they initially set the ride between 3/4, despite the fact that he’s long gone in terms of where we are as an audience.

I understand. I just think it’s an odd choice. To set the land in a specific place in time right before Ep 9 comes in and wraps things up. Maybe they should have chose to build the attraction around an original villain, the same way they chose to base the land around an original location.

Seriously are you going to listen to people on a Internet forum. Go on the ride and make the judgement yourself. Don’t fall into group think mentality it’s not very healthy. :)
LOL it was a joke. I have no interest to go back to UO anytime soon regardless.

They were already announced 4 months ago.
I mean actual details, ie, what will it be about, when it will take place, characters, opening dates, etc, etc, etc. We know more are coming but that's literally ALL we know. And it would be nice if they can clear up what is actually happening vs just a rumor.

Yes I'm aware of the timeline its set in, this is why we are discussing it.

My point in previous posts was to say they could just be doing like Marvel Land and say it falls outside the greater continuity of the movies. That way they don't have to quickly update the attraction when a movie changes one of the characters. Because it'll be odd for them to update and remove characters from the attractions when EP9 comes out a couple months after opening.

So in my mind it'll just be "stuck" in that time period between EP8 and EP9.

I get your point, but ultimately its the nature of the beast. In order to not have to constantly update the attraction every few months when a SW TV Show or Movie makes a change to the SW continuity, it'll just be frozen in a specific time period.

in my best Yoda voice... Timeline? Matters not it does. Popular it will be even if no sense the story makes.

Only the most serious Star Wars fans really care about the details of the story line and how it may or may not fit into the movie timeline. Just look at how popular FOP is... yet, the movie was no where near as popular, and a far stretch from where the movie ended. People just won't care if the ride is anywhere near as awesome as FOP.

May the Schwartz be with you!

Disneyland Cast Members react to being part of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening team

Who was it that was saying that they couldn't find CMs to work SWL?
Found it!...
Read this from Westsider from the site we dont speak of... Rat Talk. A lot of it is regarding concerns that many have shared on the topic of SWL capacity/ operations but I believe he has a good rep/ some inside info and goes into a bit more detail.


"Management is already having a difficult time getting people to apply to go to GE. They need hundreds of CM's just for attractions, but very few people applied. The problem is that the Test and Adjust crew has been there for a year now, and they know all the problems the rides will face. Management also had a hard time getting quality candidates to fill the middle managers and front line management spots, and TDA filled the management teams with some very inexperienced candidates. There are respected DL managers with decades of experience who said "No way in heck!" would they go to GE, and that has filtered down to the hourly CM's with seniority too. The smart CM's are staying away.
A random poster on a Micechat forum who's heard stuff. In fact in finding the original post, Westsider begins their news report with these famous words...

"Word on the street..."

Just a thought:

If they set a one alcoholic drink per guest, per day; the limited seating at the cantina would be less of an issue.
