Disney’s Details Make “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” So Memorable
When I was two or so, I sat on my dad’s lap to see Star Wars. That was back in 1977 and there was no subtitle of “Episode IV: A New Hope.” I saw The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 with my mom, and I distinctly remember her asking me if I thought Darth Vader was Luke’s father. Then, in 1983, we all saw Return of the Jedi. My point here is that walking into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge gives you that same feeling; that feeling like the sky is the limit and a notion that imagination might just be the world’s (any world’s) most important commodity.
So, even more than sitting in the Millennium Falcon or building a droid — which were both awesome experiences — merely walking around the streets and scenes of Galaxy’s Edge was enough to transport me to another planet (or go back in time to when I was sitting with my dad, meeting Luke Skywalker).
Here are some pictures from my first two visits to Batuu. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
I’m ready to go back…. Right now! Who’s with me?
