Disney have revealed some details about a new Star Wars themed hotel currently under construction at Walt Disney World, Florida. The hotel will be an immersive experience titled Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser; and, as the name suggests, guests staying in the hotel will feel like they are taking a voyage on a star cruiser.
In-universe the star cruise is called Halcyon, and is operated by Chandrila Star Line. The starcruiser has 32 cabins available to guests, with a mix of standard and first-class cabins catering for up to five people.
Fans may recognise Chandrila as one of the worlds of the Core Worlds which served as an interim capital of the New Republic following the defeat of the Empire, and is also the homeworld of Loyalist Committee member and Alliance leader Mon Mothma. Chandrila is also the homeworld of Ben Solo.
The hotel will tie-in to the Black Spire Outpost Star Wars themed area of the Disney resort, and guests will be able interact with Disney cast members who will remain in character allowing you to explore their stories during your voyage. Guests will also reportedly be given a backstory for their character while staying at the hotel.
Prining and opening date details have not yet been released, but Disney have released some concept art, below:
Star Wars Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire is a canon novel by Delilah S Dawson.
Black Spire acts as a prequel to the Galaxy's Edge Disney resorts theme park experience which takes place in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu, and is set between the events of The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.
The canon novel Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire by Delilah S Dawson is released today.
If you're intending to travel to the outer rim world of Batuu this summer, then you'll be pleased to know that reservations are now open for entry into the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge park at Disneyland, California.
Reservations will be required if you want to visit Galaxy's Edge 31 May and 23 June. There is a catch, however, as reservations are currently only open to those booking rooms at Disneyland Resort hotels. For those not staying in the resort, reservations will open on 2 May, with further details to be posted on the Disney Parks Blog that morning.
Thankfully there are no additional fees to reserve your entry, but spaces are subject to availability, presumeably in an effort to avoid overcrowding.
Galaxy's Edge promises an authentic Star Wars experience, with the production team going to whole new levels to ensure visitors are fully emmersed in a galaxy far far away.
