On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Ewan McGregor talks about his Obi-Wan “practice beard,” reading William Shatner’s book Get A Life on a prequel set with Ahmed Best, the big Disney+ reveal, and his new movie, Doctor Sleep.
The planet is new, but it’s already on Wookieepedia thanks to a mention in Ultimate Star Wars, which has another connection to someone new. Possible spoilers, if you consider really basic things spoilers.
But Disney did reveal more about the cruise-like Halcyon. It really is being treated more like an actual cruise than your standard Disney hotel: Fans get a two day, two night stay, and everyone boards at the same time. From there, you’re in “space” – though there is a “a planet-side excursion to Black Spire Outpost on Batuu” and your visit becomes “a multi-day story that interweaves with members of the crew, other passengers, familiar Star Wars characters.” You get to visit the bridge, play with lightsabers and “discover hidden spaces deep in the mechanics of the ship.”
So as for how much it’ll cost you, we still only have those rumors. And will non-guests be allowed on-board at all? The “maybe we’ll just get dining reservations” approach seems less likely than ever…
Disney has revealed that the Star Wars hotel “experience” coming to Disney World is called Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. Guests can expect a two-night stay abroad the Halcyon of the Chandrila Star Line.
