Specially Designed Coca-Cola Products Coming Exclusively To Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

From the engaging sights and sounds to the tantalizing tastes of Black Spire Outpost, everything within Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been carefully crafted to ensure an immersive experience that has never been seen before. 

Disney Parks previously shared that visitors will be able to discover otherworldly flavors at their many food and beverage locations, and today Disney shared a bit more about one of these unique elements that galactic travelers will only be able to find on their visit to Batuu.

Disney parks wanted to create something truly special – something that will bring your own Star Wars adventure to life in a whole new way. They reached out to Coca-Cola, and along with Lucasfilm Ltd. came up with specially designed Coca-Cola bottles that are designed to fit authentically within the Star Wars universe.

These unique Coca-Cola products will be available at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge from May 31st at Disneyland Park and August 29th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Marvel To Publish Crossover Miniseries Comic Based On Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Pirates, smugglers, merchants, and wanderers from across the galaxy have traveled to make their score or sell their wares at the infamous black market located at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu.  Journey to this locale in the Outer Rim in the new Marvel Star Wars comic series Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which ties into the new lands opening at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort later this year.

Readers of the five-issue miniseries will be the first to meet the infamous Dok-Ondar, the Ithorian collector of rare antiquities, and find out what happens when the First Order reaches the edge of wild space. The key to saving this lawless outpost might just involve a job pulled long ago by none other than Han Solo and his cohort Chewbacca.

The series is written by Ethan Sacks, who recently entered the Star Wars comics galaxy with a tale of Jedi Master, Mace Windu, in the Star Wars: Age of Republic series. The series will be illustrated by Will Sliney, the artist behind the Beckett one-shot who also penciled the comic adaptation for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Cover art will be created by Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm artists.

StarWars.com spoke with Sacks to learn more about how Star Wars first captured his imagination, and get a sneak peek at what’s in store for fans when the new series launches this spring.  Read more HERE.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge #1, including the above variant cover by Karl Lindber and Iain McCaig, goes on sale April 2019.

Go Behind The Scenes of Disney Parks Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

The Walt Disney Company has released a new behind-the-scenes video for the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, an all-new set of attractions coming to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World in 2019. The video offers a first look at two of the new attractions, Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run.

Both east and west coast versions of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will allow guests to visit a remote trading port on the edge of wild space, where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life – and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action. The lands will feature two major attractions that put guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Each attraction – and even the land itself – will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before.

“Rise of the Resistance” will make guests feel like they’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay while “Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run” will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millennium Falcon, piloting the ship, shooting blasters or preparing for hyperspace – all while completing a critical mission. But how you perform on the mission holds even bigger stakes: perform with skill and you may earn extra galactic credits, while bringing the ship back banged up could put you on the list of a bounty hunter. End up on Harkos’s list and you may face a problem if you show up at the local cantina!

Guests will also encounter many familiar faces inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including BB-8, Chewbacca, members of the First Order and – among many others – Rex, the troublesome pilot you may remember from Star Tours, who takes on a new role in this land as the DJ at the cantina. At the cantina guests will be able to try unique concoctions like blue milk. Nearby, they’ll also be able to acquire trinkets and treasures from across the galaxy. You won’t be buying ordinary Star Wars merchandise or T-shirts at the gift shops, but rather special figures and vehicles (like an AT-AT) built by Batuu’s female Toydarians. The toys are inspired by designs from films like The Force Awakens, Rogue One and The Last Jedi.

A Star Wars-inspired resort will also debut as part of the new Disney 360 vacation concept. This new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in summer 2019 at Disneyland Resort and in late fall 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort.

New Details Revealed For The Millennium Falcon Ride at Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

I can’t wait for Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to open and I am especially excited about the Millennium Falcon ride!

New details about the ride were revealed on a bonus feature on the Solo: A Star Wars Story home release called “The Millennium Falcon: From Page to Park”

The ride will consist of seven pods carrying six seats each and it will allow riders to interact with the environment around them. Riders will actually get to control the Falcon while in it! 

Asa Kalama, Executive Creative Director, Millennium Falcon Attraction explained:

“You’re truly in control of the fastest and most iconic ship in the entire galaxy. And Hondo, he’s gone ahead and added a couple extra seats so he can get as many of those flight crews through as possible. There are 200 some odd buttons, knobs and switches on the inside of the cockpit and they all do stuff. If you’re the gunners in the center there and you don’t fire back on those TIE Fighters fast enough they’re going to riddle the hull with laser bolts, the engineers in back, it’s really up to them to keep the whole Falcon in working order so they’re back there furiously working away at their various systems.”

Kalama also said that the ride will allow you to turn 360 degrees, and “every last detail is exactly where you remembered it and how you remembered it.”

Disney Imagineering executive Scott Trowbridge reveals that the ride will send you on a mission for Hondo Ohnaka from Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. That mission involves you bringing back a bunch of loot. Here are the details on how the experience will play out:

“If you bring back all the loot and there’s not a scratch on the ship and Hondo is really happy when you bring it back, you might find yourself with some extra Galactic Credits in your account, but do a poor job, you lose the cargo, you smash up the ship, you might come back owing more money than you started with, the bossman might not be too happy and when you roll across to the local cantina the bartender might lean over and say ‘hey, word on the street is your name’s been put on the list of a local bounty hunter, I’d watch out if I were you’ so how well you do on this mission really does have an impact on your overall, land-wide story.”

Guests will also be about to explore the main chess room on the ship and “really be immersed in that environment, you can actually push buttons and just kind of soak it all in.”

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in summer 2019 at Disneyland and fall 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.
