Galaxy’s Edge Was Originally Set In A More Familiar Location

Galaxy's Edge

Galaxy’s Edge at the Disney Theme parks allowed fans of the Star Wars franchise to immerse themselves within a galaxy far, far away. The House of Mouse ultimately choseBatuu as the location for the attraction. However, originally it was going to be a place more familiar to fans.

That place was Tattooine. Yes, the home of beloved Jedi Luke Skywalker. Check out what Dan Cockerell, Disney World Resort Vice President had to say on the matter down below.

“The Indiana Jones theater, that was going to be the heart of the Star Wars land. The Mos Eisley Cantina, that was going to be right across from Star Tours, and we had all kinds of great concepts with that. We’d gotten way down the path on art drawings, we hadn’t gone into architectural drawings or anything.”

More from Cockerell:

“Kathleen Kennedy, her point of view was, there are way more Disney Star Wars stories ahead of us than behind us. So we really should think about, do we want to build a Tatooine and build what all the 50-somethings remember Star Wars is? Or do we want to build something else which is going to appeal to all the upcoming generations who are going to know the new stories?”

I’m still yet to visit the attraction. Unfortunately, it’s still going to be a little while before anyone even has an opportunity to check it out. I have to say, I would have went with Tatooine. The iconic Cantina would have been a huge pull for the attratction, in my opinion. However, I can also see the point of using a new location as to be more inclusive of future generations of fans.
