Get a Look Inside the Cockpit of the Millenium Falcon at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge with Solo: A Star Wars Story

Earlier this week, Solo: A Star Wars Story was released on Blu-Ray to Star Wars fans everywhere! On Target exclusive release there is a bonus feature that takes a look inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, coming to Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios next year!

The 13-minute feature titled “The Millennium Falcon: From Page to Park” gives an overview of each coasts land and focuses on the highly anticipated Millenium Falcon attraction! The feature offers the expertise of:

  • Scott Trowbridge, Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering
  • Carrie Beck, Vice President, Lucasfilm Story Group
  • Pablo Hidalgo, Creative Executive, Lucasfilm Story Group
  • Matt Martin, Creative Executive, Lucasfilm Story Group
  • Doug Chiang, VP and Executive Creative Director, Lucasfilm Story Group
  • Kiri Hart, Senior Vice President, Development Lucasfilm
  • Jacqueline King, Producer, Millennium Falcon Attraction
  • Asa Kalama, Executive Creative Director, Millennium Falcon Attraction

They discuss everything from the immersive nature of the attraction to how it will affect the rest of your experience in the Galaxy’s edge. Executive Creative Director Asa Kalama on riding the attraction:

 “You’re truly in control of the fastest and most iconic ship in the entire galaxy. And Hondo, he’s gone ahead and added a couple extra seats so he can get as many of those flight crews through as possible. There are 200 some odd buttons, knobs and switches on the inside of the cockpit and they all do stuff. If you’re the gunners in the center there and you don’t fire back on those TIE Fighters fast enough they’re going to riddle the hull with laser bolts, the engineers in back, it’s really up to them to keep the whole Falcon in working order so they’re back there furiously working away at their various systems.”

Scott Trowbridge from Walt Disney Imagineering on the effect of your stay on Batuu:

“If you bring back all the loot and there’s not a scratch on the ship and Hondo is really happy when you bring it back, you might find yourself with some extra Galactic Credits in your account, but do a poor job, you lose the cargo, you smash up the ship, you might come back owing more money than you started with, the bossman might not be too happy and when you roll across to the local cantina the bartender might lean over and say ‘hey, word on the street is your name’s been put on the list of a local bounty hunter, I’d watch out if I were you’ so how well you do on this mission really does have an impact on your overall, land-wide story.”

Everywhere you look, there is amazing additions coming to the parks. The largest land addition to the parks is shaping up to be unlike anything that has ever been done before! What are you looking forward to most?
