Stars Wars Launch Bay

    Explore the immersive Star Wars exhibits of costumes, models, concept artwork and actual movie props. Also watch a short movie that summaries the whole franchise. People interviewed include Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, and Rogue One director Gareth Edwards.

    Afterwards, you can meet three characters, usually Chewbacca, Kylo Ren, and BB-8. These meet and greets bring character interaction to a new level with the latest technology. Instead of wearing a frozen smile like Goofy or Mickey, Chewbacca can move his mouth and even growl to answer questions. And he’ll even allow a smooch if you’d “just as soon kiss a Wookie.”
