May the 4th Be with You, Even at Home

May 4, 2020, 12:08 AM · Happy Star Wars Day to all Disney and theme park fans, wherever you are. While I am certain that many of you would like to celebrate at the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu today, it might actually be easier to travel to a galaxy far, far away than to get into the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge lands at the closed Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios theme parks at the moment.

But the Internet remains open, so let's pour ourselves a glass of blue milk and take a virtual trip to Batuu to celebrate as we say, "May the Fourth Be with You!"

Our friend R2-D2 is here to welcome us to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Let's earn our keep here on Batuu by pulling a shift for Hondo Ohnaka on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.

And because we're not just theme park fans here, but Theme Park Insiders, let's celebrate the making of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge with Bob Rogers' Legends panel from the 2019 IAAPA Expo in Orlando, featuring the land's creative leaders: Scott Trowbridge, Margaret Kerrison, Anisha Deshmane, and Chris Beatty, from Walt Disney Imagineering.

Still remember first trip to MGM in January of 1990, Star Tours had just opened and a fantastic experience. As someone who loved Star Wars since 1977, amazing to see it unfold and hope sooner rather than later we can all enjoy those rides again.
