Dan Zehr and Jim Hill wade through the tidal wave of news that just broke about “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.” Some of the factoids that they unearth in the process include that the color palette used for Florida’s version of this new “land” will be different than the one out in Southern California. Also the blue milk will be berry-melon flavored while the green milk will have more of a citrus taste.


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Why the Anaheim version of “Galaxy’s Edge” may not have droids wandering through this Star Wars-themed land ‘til the Fall of 2019

How the play-testing phase of “Smugglers Run” made the Imagineers decide to remove the meet-Chewbacca-by-the-holochess-table moment aboard the Millennium Falcon

How “Rise of the Resistance” ‘s constantly-breaking-Guests-down-into-ever-smaller-storytelling-units technique actually harkens back to what Universal Creative did in May of 1991 with “Back to the Future: The Ride”

How the success of Ollivanders at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter inspired WDI to create the force-sensitive / build-your-own-light-saber experience at Savi & Son Salvage

How Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Stone, & Rupert Grint’s tearful farewell to the world of Harry Potter back in June of 2010 turned out to be a touch premature
