Star Wars Land Will Have Droids Throughout the Park
The highly anticipated Star Wars Land that was announced back in August of last year is looking to completely reshape the Star Wars family fun experience. The ‘Imagineers’ at Disney have been hard at work creating the ultimate engulfery (my word) of the Star Wars Universe.
Disney recently announced that the new park will consist of friendly engaging interactive droids from the Galaxy far far away. So it looks like you can look forward to rolling alongside BB-8 or kick’in it with R2-D2. Personally, i’d try and get R2 to show me the Leia message asking Obi-Wan for help. That might be asking for too much, but Disney ‘Imagineers’ are some of the smartest people on the planet so i wouldn’t be too surprised if they could pull it off.
These are going to be real robots. Not people dressed in special suits. I’m sure you’ll still see C3PO or O’s walking around, but those ‘Droids’ are most likely gonna need lunch breaks.
Recently Disney has been testing a small droid named ‘Jake’ in Launch Bay at Disneyland. You can see him/it/her in action in the video below.
