Disney will replace the heroes of the new Star Wars trilogy at Galaxy’s Edge and will focus on other more popular characters.
The spectacular attraction Galaxy’s Edge allows Star Wars fans to enjoy the experience of living in one of the most popular universes of cinema. But at Disney, it is clear that they must adapt the place to what the fans are really asking for.
Disney opened the attraction to the public in May 2019 after three years of development, promising enthusiasts the best immersive Star Wars experience. From Savi’s Workshop, where you can create and purchase your custom lightsaber, to Mubo’s Depot that offers the same function as droids. This area is full of all kinds of activities that do everything possible that you can live a unique experience. But there are also many iconic Star Wars characters who roam the park and interact with guests, although, at this point, most of them are from the timeline of the new trilogy. Something that they are willing to change.
The Mandalorian will replace the heroes of the new trilogy.
Disney is clear that the popularity of characters from Star Wars films such as The Force Awakens (2015), The Last Jedi (2017), and The Rise of Skywalker (2019), is currently very low. That is why they will give it less and less importance, almost as if it did not exist. Especially to promote future projects that do make fans happy.
According to the new information, the public has no interest in Star Wars characters like Rey, Poe Dameron, or Kylo Ren, however, they are eager to find out more about The Mandalorian, Baby Yoda, Ahsoka Tano, and even young Luke Skywalker.
So the transition will be quick and soon the amusement parks will also start promoting Disney + series about Star Wars like The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka Tano, Kenobi, or the third season of The Mandalorian, but they also want to see which characters from the High Republic became popular to be able to exploit them to the maximum.
