Rian Johnson Praises 'Freakin Unbelievable' Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (And Its Delicious Green Milk)
The Force flowing through me right now is envy of everyone who gets to go to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge any time in the next [checks bank balance] decade or so. Disneyland's new land opens May 31, with no reservations required starting June 24. Several lucky people have already checked the place out, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. He tweeted some reactions to the experience, and made special note of a certain tasty beverage:
Ah yes, Luke Skywalker would approve.
Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is going to sell both the blue milk Luke drank in the original 1977 Star Wars and the green milk Luke drank after milking a Thala-Siren in The Last Jedi. Here's what's in the milk they sell, if you're curious. Apparently the milk will cost $7.99, which does sound like a lot but it's nothing compared to everything else.
Rian Johnson also tweeted some answers to fans' questions, whether serious or just silly. One fan asked about another The Last Jedi addition:
What's a 2019 Star Wars attraction without Porgs? It would be like leaving out the Ewoks. (Don't you dare say anything bad about Ewoks. I grew up loving them and they will forever stay beloved.)
FYI, Disney Parks Blog posted that it will be hosting a #DisneyParksLIVE stream covering Disneyland's dedication ceremony of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge on May 29 at 8:20 p.m. PDT/11:20 p.m. EDT. That's when you can get a good look at this new land, at least from afar.
Here's everything we know so far about Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. We're still waiting on official word about Rian Johnson's own next Star Wars movies. Disney said the Game of Thrones showrunners are doing the next movie after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but that doesn't mean Johnson isn't still working on his own previously announced trilogy. Just keep yourself hydrated with expensive milk and stay tuned for updates.

She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
