The Disney Parks Blog announced that the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser all immersive hotel experience will debut in 2022.
Disney has shared select details on what this experience will entail, and more details were revealed today. Amongst those details was a tease of the new lightsabers that were first teased in a media presentation by Josh D’Amaro:
The blog confirms that this is a new type of lightsaber created by Walt Disney Imagineering Research and Development and that guests at the Galactic Starcruiser will be amongst the first to see it in action. The blog does not confirm whether or not it will be available for purchase.
The blog breaks down the experience that begins at the Starcruiser terminal where guests will gather with other passengers before departing on a special Launch Pod to a galaxy far far away.
Guests will be able to see through windows as they approach the Halcyon starcruiser. When the doors to the Launch Pod open guests will be inside the Starcruiser surrounded by the many unique characters that inhabit the ship.
From the blog:
During your stay aboard this glamorous ship, you may interact with an eclectic group of characters both familiar and new, possibly including the starcruiser’s strong and charismatic captain, a plucky ship’s mechanic and a galactic superstar who can captivate an entire room with the crook of one jewel-encrusted purple Twi’lek finger.
This singing sensation will be a featured performer during one of your exquisite dining experiences inside the Crown of Corellia Dining Room, which you can see in this artist concept rendering we’re sharing today for the first time. The enticing supper club’s name is an homage to Corellia, the planet known galaxy-wide for its shipyards that gave us not only the Halcyon starcruiser, but also the Millennium Falcon. The dining room is a bright and welcoming hall that will offer breakfast and lunch to passengers before transitioning each evening into a lavish multi-course menu of both otherworldly and familiar origins.
As your journey continues, you’ll have the opportunity to train in the ancient ways of the lightsaber, learn more about the inner workings of the Halcyon starcruiser and even jump on a transport to the planet Batuu to further your adventure inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This isn’t storytelling – it’s storyliving, where you’ll see, feel and live Star Wars in a whole new way.
