Salut à tous,
Depuis 2011 aux États-Unis et 2017 en France, Star Tours II enchante les visiteurs des parcs Disneyland en proposant un trajet contenant plusieurs dizaines de combinaisons possibles. Mais cela va bientôt changer. En effet dès vendredi (aux États-Unis), le trajet ne sera plus aléatoire pendant une période encore non définie. Tous les trajets seront identiques et contiendront : une nouvelle scène d'ouverture, la scène sur Jakku, l'interlude avec BB-8 et la nouvelle planète de l'épisode VIII : Crait.
Ensuite, à une date encore inconnue, il sera possible de choisir si l'on veut voir ce trajet tiré de la postlogie ou bien si l'on préfère les trajets tirés des épisodes I à VI. À noter à ce sujet que les sources sont contradictoires, WDWNT annonce un trajet aléatoire à travers les épisodes I à VI tandis qu'Endor Express annonce un choix de trajet entre la trilogie, la prélogie ou la postlogie soit des trajets encore moins aléatoire.
Il n'y a pas encore eu d'annonces concernant Disneyland Paris mais nulle doute que cela arrivera par chez nous également.
Que pensez-vous de ce changement de politique ? On en parle sur le forum.
Et si vous ne pouvez pas vous y rendre cette année, je vous rappelle que la prochaine sortie SWU à Disneyland aura lieu le samedi 10 février. Les inscriptions ont lieu ici.
À bientôt dans cette galaxie comme dans l'autre...
We saw the blueprints for Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and this is what they show
The visitors who enter Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge after it opens in 2019 will step into the most intricate and immersive environment the park has ever created, with lush trees, exotic buildings, a land speeder garage, a droid shop and even a version of the Mos Eisley cantina, according to building plans Disney has filed with the city of Anaheim.
The “Star Wars”-themed land, the largest single themed land ever built at the Anaheim park, will take up a 14-acre swath of land in the northern part of Frontierland. The blueprints detailing what will be in the land – and where – are arguably the most important plans for fans of the franchise since those for the Death Star.
Here’s what they reveal :
•Guests coming in from Fantasyland will first see a First Order performance stage and other props. Those entering from the west side see a verdant forest, a Jedi star ship and other props from the Resistance movement.
•As park-goers work their way toward the middle of the area, they could walk inside a cantina – similar to the Mos Eisley from the films – and order a soft drink from a bartender manning a U-shaped bar and sit down in booths, and table tops while listening to an audio-animatronic DJ or band on a stage.
•And in the large ride that will anchor Galaxy’s Edge, new villain Kylo Ren could make an appearance.
Construction for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is well underway. A model of the land was unveiled at Disney’s biennial fan convention, the D23 Expo, in July, but the blueprints shed more light on the project’s size and scope. Disney is also building Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios in Florida’s Walt Disney World. It’s unclear how similar the two lands will be.
Disney officials on Friday, Nov. 17, revealed that the concept of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is to place guests at a trading post on the planet Batuu.
“Once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel,” said Scott Trowbridge, portfolio creative executive at Walt Disney Imagineering on Disneys official parks blog. “Now home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space.
“It’s also a convenient safe haven for those intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order,” he added.
Galaxy’s Edge will feature two main rides – one that allows visitors to pilot the Millennium Falcon and another unnamed that pits them in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
The blueprints provide more details, from the types of trees that will be planted in the Resistance Forest, the stones used for the building structures, the design of the sewer caps, to the restrooms and areas dedicated for stroller parking.
City officials said like any development, the blueprints are not set in stone. Disney could modify the submitted plans anytime.
A Disneyland spokesman did not provide any additional details on plans for the land.
With the eighth installment of the Star Wars space opera franchise set to be released in mid-December, here are eight things that can be gleaned from the public plans filed by Disney.
1. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land layout
Disney officials and the model have previously revealed this but the blueprints lay out exactly how Star Wars land area will be configured. Galaxy’s Edge is split into two sides with a hub or conflict zone in the middle. The Resistance or Rebels are on the west side of the land lined with hundreds of lush trees and forest. The First Order appears to have a performance stage and other props on the east side. The Millennium Falcon and the second, unnamed ride occupy much of the north side of the land, while the middle serves as the trading port’s hub with a merchant area and marketplace.
2. The First Order ride
The building bears the code name “Alcatraz” in documents. It is a massive structure that nearly takes up nearly a quarter of Galaxy’s Edge. The plans reveal that inside, visitors will hop aboard an eight-person ride vehicle piloted by an astromech droid. Visitors will weave through projection scenes depicting a major space battle, elaborate props such as AT ATs, gunners, and a possible encounter with Kylo Ren (nicknamed Kylo-Vator in plans) before leaving in an escape pod. There are 18 scenes in total.
3. Flying the Falcon
Dubbed “Big Bird” in plans, the Millennium Falcon is 100-feet across. Inside, the ride has a pre-show room before guests go into one of what appear to be four turntable rooms. Pictures previously released by Disney show six passengers boarding a ship that allows them to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy. Trowbridge, the Disney Imagineer, has previously said If a visitor does a good job flying the ship, that person will receive some kind of galactic credit. If a guest leaves the ship banged up, a bounty might be placed on the visitor’s head.
This is your chance to stare down some aliens, negotiate a bounty or perhaps drink blue milk. Located directly across from the Millennium Falcon ride, the plan for the Cantina is nearly similar to the Mos Eisley in the movies. According to plans, the cantina will feature a U-shaped bar, booths, and tables. A stage will feature audio-animatronic performs, perhaps the Rex droid as the DJ as Disney officials previously announced.
5. Merchants’ Row
One of the features of the trading post is merchants’ row. One store that stands out was labeled “Saber.” Will there be a shop selling specifically Light Sabers? Plans for the building show six-story-high rocky spires fronting a one-story retail building with interior space about half the size of a football field. All the store fixtures will be themed to look like aged and distressed metal.
Disney executives have already hinted that droids will populate the land. They’ve been testing a J4KE or Jake Droid the past year at Disneyland. According to the plans, droids dominate the area. Droid charging stations will be located throughout the land and there also will be a droid mechanic shop.
7. Landspeeder garage
Remember Luke Skywalker floating around in a land speeder? There’s an area in Star Wars land, outside of a restaurant, that’s marked “land speeder garage,” with props of various parked space crafts.
8. The Restaurant
Documents reveal that there appears to be one large sit-down and table service restaurant. The restaurant – yet to be named or themed – appears in the middle of the land. Based on plans, it appears to be larger than the Blue Bayou restaurant in Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
Sneak A Peek At The Toydarian Wares Coming To Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Just moments ago, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Bob Chapek shared an update on the progress of the highly anticipated land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and shared a sneak peek at the unique Toydarian merchandise guests will find exclusively in the land.
At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will visit the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two attractions that take detail and immersion to the next level: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
Guests will also be able to explore a street market run by a Toydarian, a character first introduced in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Among his wares will be handcrafted toys made by local artisans, like those seen above.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at both the Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resorts in 2019.
