Three people helped create this bold new adventure in a galaxy far, far. Portfolio Creative Executive Scott Trowbridge and Creative Director Cory Rouse from Walt Disney Imagineering along with Mikhael Tara Garver, director of immersive experiences for this project tell how this unique experience will thrill guests.

Scott Trowbridge shares that this huge undertaking began years ago while Disney Galaxy’s Edge was being built with this in mind. Mikhael Tara Garver tells us that this next level of immersive storytelling is “everything we’ve been dreaming of.”

Starcruiser changes the way people play together and the way stories are told.  Disney spent time creating a story that also blends with many Star Wars storylines.  Also, Disney integrates technology and the game in a whole new way.

Disney told Cory to “go be you,” which gave him freedom to explore all kinds of possibilities.  Then, he explains that Disney took “quick hits” of 30-second to 2-minute Star Wars moments in Galaxy’s Edge into a 2-night experience.  To do this Corey and his team created a whole new process.

There’s moments where guests will share with each other bringing a connection.  It’s not just for kids experiencing adventure. The whole family is a part of everything that’s done here.

There’s a technology foundation that allows the story with a time imagery system.  This time imagery system allows guests to experience the entire ship at once.  What guests see on the bridge, they also see out the cabin.

Everything is integrated together so it appears you’re actually in space.  The video also shows a lightsaber activity with Rey!
