INTERVIEW: Star Wars Land model tour w/ Imagineer Scott Trowbridge at D23 Expo 2017 - Galaxy's Edge

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_F55uORSy8


We finally get the official first-look at Disneyland's Star Wars Land and it looks f*cking amazing. I really didn't have a clue what it would look like. I kinda figured it was going to be more current Tomorrowland-ish. So, yeah, I'm definitely happy with what they have come up with and look forward to going personally.

He Went on Radiator Springs Racers 10,750 Times | Disney People by Oh My Disney

I've never been to the Park adjacent to Disneyland, so I had no idea this ride even existed. The ride itself looks pretty cool. As for the video, it's actually a pretty good feel-good story. Check it out.

Disneyland Star Wars Galaxy's Edge

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOwH3mCRpqE

Been waiting for today for a while now because I knew there would be a handful of people streaming live from Disneyland's Grand Opening of Galaxy's Edge today. Not familiar with this guy or his channel. Only posting this because the channel that I normally watch live streams from Disneyland has yet to go live.

Okay, since no one else is saying it....anywhere online that I know of. Galaxy's Edge sucks. With the amount of hype, money and prep time to build this, there isn't much of anything to it. Sure, it looks cool, but all they have at launch is 1 f*cking ride? And it's not even all that. It's nothing more than Star Tours on steroids. Sure, it's "interactive" as you get to be a Pilot, Engineer, Gunner, etc.... Big whoop! Still nothing more than Star Tours clone. As for the rest of the "experience", it's bullsh*t. It's nothing more than a trap to get suckers into paying an additional $120 for a "Build your own Droid" experience and $200 to "Build your own Lightsaber" experience. Had I gone for myself without no knowledge of what it actually is, I would have been royally p*ssed.

So, to get into Disneyland you will shell out $150 (the cheapest price there is), and then $120 for a Droid, $199 for a Lightsaber, and I'm guessing maybe around $50 for food and drinks if you're being frugal. Yeah, royally p*ssed indeed. That's a whole lot of money for what's promised but fails to deliver. I'm glad YouTube exist so that people can be warned beforehand. I'll wait till they actually get a bunch of rides in there before I consider ever going. And given that they have most likely maxed out every inch of existing real estate, "a lot" more rides in the future is very unlikely.

Young Padawan’s Faceoff With Stormtroopers at Galaxy’s Edge!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeiLIPlRfC4

I know I ragged on Galaxy's Edge and I still stand behind my opinions on it, but the one thing that they got right was / is the roaming "stage play" where Kylo Ren and in this case Stormtroopers just wander around and create a show for those milling about or waiting in line for something. This video in particular is awesome.

I think it was during the Opening Day Stream where the guy went up to say "hi" to Rey (same actress as seen here) and she just went right into character/story mode. I'm sure they are told to always be "in character" at all times.

Oh, they are.  A co-worker of mine used to do that (he was the Beast.  Though he actually looks like Yarp from Hot Fuzz).

I do think they got some good lookalikes for Rey there, judging by the videos.
