Star Wars Galaxy's Edge

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge é uma nova área que foi includa em dois complexos diferentes da Disney.

O primeiro deles foi o Disneyland park, in California, while the second is the Walt Disney World, in Orlando, Florida.

A área de construção em cada um dos parques é de 14 acres.

A construção nos dois parques começou em abril de 2016 e ambas as áreas foram inauguradas em 2019.

Na Flórida, a atração fica dentro do parque Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Além de ser uma área temática de Star Wars, ela também é uma nova forma de storytelling da Disney.

Basicamente, o lugar faz parte do Universo Star Wars e estará interligado com a mitologia da franquia.

As Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, explains: “the area will be occupied by many inhabitants: humanoids, aliens and androids. Everything will be part of our storytelling. There will be nothing out of character or mythology“.

Por isso, a área será um espetáculo para os fãs de Star Wars. Começando pela ambientação, já que Galaxy’s Edge se baseará em um planeta chamado Batuu.

Para quem não sabe, esse é o planeta do livro Star Wars: Thrawn: Alianças, que foi lançado em 2018.

Os prédios do lugar serão baseados numa vila chamada Black Spire Outpost.

Quem assistiu ao filme Han Solo, em 2018, deve reconhecer o nome, já que a Black Spire é uma organização citada na trama do longa.

In other words: everything there is connected with the Star Wars movies and the idea is that the visitor really feels like he is in a galaxy far, far away.

atrações de Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

Well, let's talk about good things: what are the attractions in the Star Wars area at Disney?

Disney has managed to outdo itself in the attractions in this area and they are sure to please even those who are not fans of Disney. Star Wars Franchise.

Let's get to know each one of them below!

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

One of the main attractions of the Star Wars area at Disney will be a replica of Millennium Falcon in actual size. And you will be able to pilot it, at least in a simulator.

A atração colocará o visitante no comando da Millennium Falcon para fazer uma missão de contrabando.

Todo o cockpit da nave será funcional e cada pessoa terá uma função importante no comando da simulação.

Como dissemos antes, seu desempenho no brinquedo terá consequências na sua visita.

Por exemplo, você poderá ganhar mais créditos na Cantina ou ser procurado por um caçador de recompensas perigoso.

In addition to the great adventure that awaits us, disney released the video of the development of a friendly animatronic called Hondo and the level of realism presented is jaw-dropping.

The character can be seen talking and gesturing, and were it not for the earlier footage of the animatronic figure being assembled, it could easily be mistaken for a human in makeup.

Hondo Ohnaka provavelente será o responsável por lhe dar sua missão antes de embarcar na Millennium Falcon.

Aqueles que estão no passeio terão muitas oportunidades de interagir com os controles do Falcon, de acordo com o criador executivo Asa Kalama.

Hondo Ohnaka era um pirata apresentado na série animada Star Wars: Rebels e Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

O pirata Weequay ficou famoso por seqüestrar Conde Dookan, Obi-Wan Kenobi e Anakin Skywalker.

Abaixo colocamos o vídeo para vocês terem idéia do nível de realismo do animatrônico novo.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

A grande joia de Star Wars Galaxy?s Edge é sem dúvida a atração Rise of Resistance. According to Disney, this will be its biggest and most immersive experience of any parks.

Nela, os visitantes assumirão o papel de recrutas da Resistência e serão capturados pela Primeira Ordem.

O objetivo será fugir do local, enquanto uma batalha épica se desenrola no local.

Você poderá ficar frente a frente com o maligno Kylo Ren (o grande vilão da nova trilogia da franquia) durante a atração.

The Star Wars area at Disney will have an incredible experience

Jedi training

Have you ever dreamed of the chance to be a Jedi? You may not be able to accomplish this goal, but your children can.

No Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, as crianças podem trainar a Força e inclusive colocar suas habilidades à prova.

They are monitored by Jedi Masters in a 20-minute activity (intended for toddlers, toddlers and pre-teens).

No momento, a atividade está no Echo Lake, no Hollywood Studios, mas deve mudar para o Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge em algum momento.

tracks and immersion

Back there we talked about how immersion will be a central part of the Star Wars area at Disney. In fact, it even has an ?attraction? based on that.

Nós usamos ?atração?, com as aspas, porque não dá para chamar de atração mesmo.

Mas é, de certa forma, uma ?atração?. Ok, vamos lá.

Guests will be able to download a mobile app and search for clues that are hidden throughout the Star Wars area at Disney.

These lanes unlock exclusive content that enhances the immersion of Galaxy's Edge visitors. Without a doubt, it's a great diversion between each attraction.

A little bit of the ambiance of the place

Toda área temática da Disney depende muito da ambientação do lugar.

Anyone who has been to one of the Disney parks knows how much they care about the ambiance and how the decor makes all the difference in each attraction.

In the Star Wars area at Disney it would be no different, of course.

As already mentioned, Galaxy's Edge will be based on the planet Batuu, present in one of the books in the series. The place itself will be a village of a rebel organization.

The Black Spire Outpost é uma parada famosa para negociantes, aventureiros e todo tipo de contrabandistas da galáxia.

O tipo de lugar onde você facilmente encontraria o Han Solo e o Chewbacca, por exemplo.

The planet is in the farthest part of the galaxy and has become a species and sanctuary for the franchise's most notorious (and colorful) characters.

One of the features of the planet is that it is punctuated by hundreds of peaks, which were once giant trees. These spikes will be in the decoration of the area, of course.

Um dos principais pontos de ambientação do lugar é o Oga's Canteen, um pub local.

Another very cool setting point is the presence of the RX-24, a droid that has appeared in Star tours. If you don't know what this is, let's take a little history now:

In 1987, Disney opened an attraction called Star Tours in the Tomorrowland area. It was a kind of motion simulator.

The attraction operated until 2010, when it was replaced by its sequel: Star Tours – The Adventure Continues.

O RX-24 (ou melhor, o Capitão Rx-24) era um dos personagens da aventura.

Agora, ele se tornou o DJ da Oga’s Cantina, trazendo mais imersão para quem já visitou a Disney antes.

Who will also be in the new Star Wars area at Disney will be the protagonists Rey, Poe, Finn and Kylo Ren, from recent films in the franchise.

And then, he wanted to know this Star Wars area na Disney?

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets when they arrive in Orlando or even on park day.

We absolutely do not recommend that you do this for a number of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MOSTLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
