Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is full of Star Wars Riddles and one of the largest sits on a stage that anyone can see. It's the TIE Echelon of the First Order, a brand new Star Wars ship debuting in the theme park. And here I had a few minutes to talk with Brent Nikolin, a principal project leader at Walt Disney Imagineering, about the park – under the watchful eye of some first-rate stormtroopers, of course.
Nikolin and I talked about how it was for him to work on Galaxy's Edge the park's Easter eggs, and his tip-number one for the fans present. However, when I tried to ask for something more mysterious, watch the video above to see what happened.
Although the stormtroopers "did not want us to talk about it" (as you may have guessed), this was a pre-agreed joke I had come up with because the producers told me the Stormtroopers would do what I wanted, and Nikolin told me he could not say anything about that anyway. Galaxy's Edge is a park that is designed to be adaptable. What this actually means is one of those great Star Wars puzzles. However, one indication could be that the Park's only current ride, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run may be completely altered. It is a park that was built not only for this Star Wars trilogy but also for the coming ones.
Nikolin would also tell us nothing special about this fascinating statue of a Jedi priestess, which we recorded a shot of Dok-Ondars antiquity cave. Guesses about her background story?
Such both obvious and not so obvious secrets are over Galaxy's Edge . It is now open at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. However, if you do not have a reservation, you can not arrive until June 24th. It will open on August 29 at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida. Admission is included in the theme park ticket price, which currently varies from $ 104 to $ 149 for a day pass, depending on travel dates.
