Disneyland and Walt Disney World are promising some big things when it comes to the planned Star Wars Land, Galaxy's Edge, in 2019. While they're still not saying much, some details are being revealed in an interesting place. During the recent Galactic Nights Event that took place at Disney's Hollywood Studios, guests were given packs of collectible trading cards. Each pack contained four cards, but it appears there were six unique cards (with some variations) released, with more to come. A closer look at these cards reveals a few details about the new land we didn't have before.
CinemaBlend was able to attend the Galactic Nights event in Orlando in December, and since we brought a guest with us, we were able to obtain two packs of the cards. While there were duplicates because there always are, we were able to get a decent look at the overall layout of Galaxy's Edge. Out of context, these cards only tell part of the story. But putting everything together, we begin to see just how amazing and fun this new land is going to be.
Star Tours' Original Pilot Is A DJ
Star Wars first entry in Disney Parks happened with the original Star Tours back in 1987. That ride involved a pilot named R3X, voiced by Paul "Pee-wee" Reubens, who got very lost on his way to Endor. The current Star Tours attraction includes a decommissioned R3X as part of the queue, but it appears the old droid is going to be reprogrammed. One of the trading cards shows him wearing a set of headphones and surrounded by a crowd, looking very much like a DJ. This could indicate some sort of nighttime event taking place on the planet Batuu, where R3X DJs a night of dancing for the crowd. This could be just what fans of Disney California Adventure's ElecTRONica have been missing.
The Other Major Attraction May Involve Some Sort Of Rescue
From fairly early on, we've known that Galaxy's Edge would include two major new attractions. One would put guests in the pilot seat of the Millennium Falcon, but Disney has remained tightlipped about the other. They've only ever told us it would put guests in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. One card appears to give us a glimpse of what that means. We see a ride vehicle, that is clearly not the Falcon, moving toward some Walkers, with a reference to a rescue gone wrong. This would appear to be part of the other attraction, though what else is involved is still anybody's guess.
