Galaxy’s Edge Panel and BoothThe day began with the Galaxy’s Edge panel – “Bringing Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to Life at the Disney Parks”. I was hoping for a reveal of more information regarding this new land coming to Disneyland on May 31st and Walt Disney World on July 29th. However, after an hour panel in which they reiterated much of what we already knew, only three new things had been revealed.
FIRST Robotics AnnouncementScott Trowbridge, Imagineer in charge of Galaxy’s Edge, appeared and made the first new announcement – Disney is teaming up with FIRST, a global robotics organization, for the Force for Change initiative. Charity and Star Wars – millions have been raised through programs and contests like this. Here is Mark Hamill to tell you more!
