Check Out This Incredible Animatronic Coming To Galaxy’s Edge
Hondo Ohnaka, the much-loved Weequay space pirate from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels will be featured in the Millenium Falcon: Smugglers Run at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We are excited to share with you a sneak peek of the amazing Audio-Animatronics® that will bring this character to life!
The animatronic you see above have come along way from the figures you’ll see in attractions like The Hall of Presidents at the Magic Kingdom. As a Walt Disney Imagineer explains, “A1000 advanced robotics are the next evolution of the A100 Audio-Animatronics® figures that were first introduced by Walt Disney Imagineering in the mid-1980s. This standardized system for building humanoid robotic figures incorporates new electric functionality, replacing former hydraulic functions, producing extremely realistic, lifelike movement. Future figures in humanoid form can all use this system to ensure the same degree of realism and advanced levels of movement. The advanced figures that were developed for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge—like this animated figure of Hondo Ohnaka—are a hybrid of A1000 technology enhanced with custom-built elements.”
To make the attraction seem as realistic as possible, Jim Cummings will reprise his role as the voice of the legendary scoundrel Hondo who is a form colleague of Boba Fett and once kidnapped Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi for ransom.
