The opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland is quickly approaching. Our inner Star Wars geek is jumping for joy!
With the new land opening on May 31, Disney has been releasing tons of new information to get us pumped and prepared for the experience ahead. From menus, merchandise, to a 360-view of the Millennium Falcon, Disney really has given us a peek into what to expect at Galaxy’s Edge.
A few weeks ago, the Play Disney Parks App was updated, revealing all sorts of new and awesome information about the way guests will be able to interact with the land on their phones. Read all about it here.
And today, Disney has expanded on that information. The application will give you the ability to interact with the land in all-new ways by turning your mobile device into your very own datapad as you explore the planet of Batuu.
Outpost Control will be a game you can play throughout the land that will allow you to choose to support either side — the Empire or the Resistance. If your side wins, you may even find yourself being rewarded for your efforts with galactic credits!
Your datapad will allow you to use different features to better understand the world around you. The hacking feature will give you the ability to interact with certain door panels or even with droids to see their memories.
You will also be able to peek inside cargo crates when using your scanning tool.
The translation tool will help you understand the Aurebesh, which is the written language of the Star Wars galaxy. Signs written in Aurebesh will be seen throughout Black Spire Outpost.
And with the tuning feature, you will even be able to receive and decrypt signals from antennas or communications devices and listen in on secret messages.
Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
One of the most exciting pieces of news today was info on the app’s in-queue features for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run. Disney shared that guests will be able to take on a job for Hondo Ohnaka, the pirate-turned-businessman operating Ohnaka Transport Solutions out of Black Spire Outpost. You may have to reroute misplaced cargo or even prepare the Falcon for your flight!
These app features are just one way that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is pushing theme park innovation. We can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us!
