Wookies, & Rebels, & Droids... OH WHY?! The Anti-SWL in Disneyland Thread

“At the heart of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is this fundamental truth: We all have the power to be a hero, making choices that change the course of the galaxy. Whether you’re a lowly moisture farmer on some remote planet or an orphan sitting in a pile of dirt just trying to scrape by, every individual has the power to change the universe.”
I’m going to just focus on this one because what he says is good. This, in my opinion, fits the spirit of the park and the spirit of Frontierland about as well as a Star Wars land could. However, he and his team deviated so far from the rest of the park in terms of aesthetics and acoustics that if the land fails to strongly set up and drive home the story, it really feels out of place. And comes across as dull, gloomy, lifeless, etc.

They can take all the time they want.
I don't believe for a minute that 'Rise' will salvage the land and suddenly make it the exciting, epic place the Disney organization promised it would be.

Sure, it may well end up being a great Attraction, but I don't think it is really going to be able to suddenly turn 'Galaxy's Edge' into a mega success.
That time has kind of come and gone at this point, and the public has spoken.
It doesn't belong in Disneyland Park.

Let's see what happens once it opens.
It has been a entertaining saga thus far, seeing how things have unfolded to date.

I have to give credit to the Disneyland crowd. I had a number of criticisms (some of them in this thread) but never imagined that locals would reject it. I thought this was going to be a major success and that this would only be the beginning. But I rather arrogantly didn't think the Disneyland crowd actually knew what Disneyland was. I see my blunder now. This is encouraging to see the voice of the people saying no to something that sucks. You also might make change happen or cause some sort of improvement to take place. One way or another Disney has heard you all loud and clear. As a WDW person myself, seeing a group of people come together and protect something special makes me happy. Maybe someday WDW fans will get a spine and demand better.

But at least there's Disneyland!

Thing is, I don't think that's what the public is saying. I don't think the public is saying the SW:GE doesn't belong is Disneyland. They're saying Disneyland is over-priced. They're saying it's crowded. I don't think anyone in the general public is calling out the narrative cohesion between GE and the rest of the park.

Just us.
