Star Wars fans now have a chance to get an early voyage about the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser thanks to a giveaway being done as part of the “Star Wars Bring Home The Bounty” campaign. This is from Lucasfilm Consumer Products, which is partnering with Walt Disney World Resort and Lucasfilm Publishing for this giveaway. One lucky winner will get a two-night voyage aboard the Halcyon before it opens in March 2022. Not only will they get to experience this cruise, but they will also get an exclusive meet and greet with the authors of Star Wars: The High Republic.
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a whole new way to experience Star Wars. Guests will get a 2-night experience that starts at a terminal at Walt Disney World Resort. From there, they will board a launch pod to go up to the Halcyon starcruiser. This ship will then take them right into the middle of the Star Wars galaxy and the stories happening in it. The time the Halcyon will find itself in is during the reign of the First Order as the Resistance attempts to save the New Republic. This isn’t the first time the Halcyon has been here though. Guests will be able to learn more about this ship with the Star Wars: Halcyon Legacy comic book series from Marvel Comics. Lucasfilm Publishing also intends to bring the Halcyon into some other stories from the HIgh Republic era, including the new novel Star Wars: The High Republic: Mission to Disaster. This book will be available on February 1, 2022.
“One of the most exciting elements of incorporating the Halcyon into our High Republic storytelling is that it’s not just about seeing the Halcyon in action and weaving the ship into the larger story, but diving into the ship’s history and its construction as well,” said Lucasfilm Publishing creative director Michael Siglain. “We’ll visit the shipyards of Corellia, where it was built, and get to meet the genius behind this amazing ship.”
Mission to Disaster isn’t the only book the Halcyon will be appearing in, however. It will also be in the upcoming picture book Star Wars: The High Republic: The Battle for Starlight, written by George Mann. On top of that, it will bein the adult novel by Daniel José Older Star Wars: The High Republic: Midnight Horizon.
The grand prize winner of the Star Wars Bring Home the Bounty: Galactic Starcruiser Sweepstakes will receive round-trip airfare for up to four individuals to Orlando, Florida for a 4-day/3-night vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. This will include a 2-night experience on a test voyage of the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser in February 2022. The grand prize winner will also get to experience a special meet and greet opportunity with all five of the authors for The High Republic books and comics.
There will also be two first prize winners. They will receive a LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series AT-AT construction set, a Star Wars Galactic Snackin’ GROGU animatronic toy from Hasbro, a Star Wars R2-D2 TAMAGOTCHI, a Star Wars | Corkcicle – Death Star Ice Bucket, Star Wars | DIFF Eyewear – Darth Vader 2.0 sunglasses, Star Wars Jedi Decorative Pillows from Sobel Westex Home, a Star Wars Droids Guide to a Galaxy Far, Far Away by USPS, a Star Wars: The High Republic: The Rising Storm bundle, a Star Wars: The High Republic: The Republic Fair T-shirt and the full collection of Star Wars: The High Republic books and comics.
