Star Wars: Path of the Jedi at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is now closed and operating as a seasonal attraction. There is no word of a reopening date at this time.
Star Wars: Path of the Jedi is for guests who wish to be introduced to (or relive) the adventure and excitement of the Star Wars film franchise. Here, they can view an abridged cinematic reel that reviews Star Wars episodes I-VII.
To celebrate the premiere of Star Wars: Resistance, Disneyland park will be handing out complimentary Star Wars buttons on Sunday, October 7. Buttons will be distributed at Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland and are only available while supplies last.
“Star Wars Resistance,” a new animated series that takes place prior to the events of “The Force Awakens,” takes flight with a one-hour premiere SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD, with subsequent airings on Disney XD.
The high-flying adventure series follows Kazuda Xiono (“Kaz”), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Following its U.S. debut, “Star Wars Resistance” will rollout globally on Disney Channels Worldwide.
In the one-hour premiere titled “The Recruit,” Poe and BB-8 assign newly-appointed spy Kaz to the Colossus, a massive aircraft re-fueling platform on an outer rim water planet, home to colorful new aliens, droids and creatures. While undercover, Kaz works as a mechanic and lives with Poe’s old friend Yeager, a veteran pilot who operates a starship repair shop run by his crew: Tam, Neeku and their old battered astromech droid, Bucket. Kaz soon finds himself in over his head with his new friend BB-8 as he’ll have to compete in dangerous sky races, keep his mission a secret from his newfound family, and avoid the danger of the First Order.
The voice cast includes Christopher Sean (“Days of Our Lives”) as Kazuda Xiono; Suzie McGrath (“East Enders”) as Tam Ryvora; Scott Lawrence (“Legion”) as Jarek Yeager; Myrna Velasco (“Elena of Avalor”) as Torra Doza; Josh Brener (“Silicon Valley”) as Neeku Vozo; Donald Faison (“Scrubs”) as Hype Fazon; Jim Rash (“Community”) and Bobby Moynihan (“DuckTales”) as Flix and Orka, respectively; Oscar Isaac (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) as Poe Dameron; Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones”) as Captain Phasma; and Rachel Butera (“Tammy’s Tiny Tea Time”) as General Leia Organa.
Golden Globe winning actress Laura Dern visited Disneyland park this past weekend. During her visit Dern, who plays Vice Admiral Holdo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, stopped by Star Wars Launch Bay in Tomorrowland. This attraction features an epic exhibition that takes you behind-the-scenes of the film.
Jawas, the little robed guys who loved trading with guests, are no longer appearing inside Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Jawas made their final appearance on Saturday, July 29 and there is no word on when or if they will return, however many are speculating we will see them again when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in 2019.
BB-8, the beloved droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is now meeting guests at Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. BB-8 was welcomed by many anxious fans during his debut this past Sunday.
After waiting in line, guests are escorted to the meet and greet area one at a time and can talk and interact with the droid before having their picture taken. BB-8 appears at Star Wars Launch Bay in addition to Kylo Ren and Chewbacca.
Keep in mind this is a soft open ahead of BB-8’s official debut scheduled on April 14, 2017 during the Star Wars Galactic Nights special event which is currently sold out.
