Will these popular characters be permanent additions to SW:GE (as they should be) - or will they merely be there for a limited time Disney+ promotion?

Most of the Galaxy’s Edge characters come and go, so I would go soon if you must see them.

What's odd to me is Disney's willingness to break theme in California but to not do so in Florida. I'm sure the Galactic Starcruiser has some influence on DHS's version of Galaxy's Edge, but why should either land break critical thematic constraints? Are the Imagineers who worked on developing Galaxy's Edge OK with Disney throwing out-of-context characters into their creation?

Its too bad Orlando won't be getting this. I think most casual fans of Star Wars welcome the extra characters and couldn't care less about sticking to the "story" if you can call it that. Considering the Star Wars land is not set in a real location to me you can put anything in there and I'd be fine with it.

Had they chosen a real location from the movies then I would be more incline to say they should stick with the story.

Who cares about the story, it’s guaranteed the Mandalorian and Grogu will get mobbed wherever they go. Now add some iconic John Williams Star Wars music throughout the land. These additions will only make Galaxy’s Edge better.

*extremely Werner Herzog voice* We saw the baby yesterday.

He stayed on the west side of galaxy’s edge, in the no-man’s land between the first order and resistance areas. If anyone was deeply worried about canon while taking their photos, I didn’t notice.

When I visited Galaxy's Edge I can't tell you how may times I heard kids ask where Darth Vader is.
Kids don't care about canon. They want to see The Man! Or part man/machine.
