Travel, as the saying goes, broadens the mind. If, like me, you feel the same wanderlust that compelled Luke Skywalker to escape the confines of life on Tatooine and travel the stars, you’ve probably found this past year difficult to navigate. Stuck at home, confined to your local area, the thought of getting out and about again has often felt like an impossible dream. While Insidermight not be able to teleport you off this rock, we can suggest the next best thing—a visit to a galaxy far, far away that’s virtually on the doorstep of many Americans. To inspire you, we’ve put together a guide to the Californian filming locations from the original Star Wars trilogy, from the forests of giant Sequoia trees in the north of the state to the…

interactive ithorian

ILMxLAB’s Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will enter a new phase later this year when Part II of the immersive virtual reality adventure launches, and an infamous Ithorian joins its roster of fascinating characters that already includes Seezelslak (Bobby Moynihan), and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels). Dok-Ondar is a collector of intriguing artifacts whose Den of Antiquities is open for business at Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney Parks. As part of the exciting expansion of Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, players will be able to interact with the Ithorian dealer, who has previously been realized as an Audio-Animatronics presence at the physical Batuu to be found in Walt Disney World Resort, Florida, and Disneyland Resort, California. “From the first time we heard about him in Solo: A…

a force for good

An auction of movie memorabilia collected by the late David Prowse, including numerous rare autographs of fellow Star Wars stars and Prowse’s personal script for Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), made headlines in May when it raised a total of $554,788, a percentage of which will benefit the charitable organization Alzheimer’s Research U.K. The biggest ticket item was that Empire script, which sold for $31,900, with a photograph signed by Mark Hamill including the personal message “You’ll always be ‘Dad’ Vader to me,” fetching $20,800. Prowse himself suffered from dementia in the later years of his life, the debilitating condition for which Alzheimer’s Research U.K. is dedicated to improving treatments and working towards a cure.…

return of the maggie

Among a raft of new content released on Disney+ as part of the streaming service’s May 4th Star Wars Day celebrations, a special mini-episode of The Simpsons (1990-present) swapped Springfield for the galaxy far, far away (or at least an intergalactic pre-school within driving distance). In Maggie Simpson: The Force Awakens From Its Nap, the youngest member of the Simpsons clan embarks upon an epic quest with help from BB-8 to retrieve her stolen pacifier, featuring cameos from familiar characters and a closing credits sequence that pays homage to The Mandalorian (2019-present), in a hilarious battle against the dark side of day care. This special wasn’t the only treat added to the Disney+ library, however, with new short films also going live. Drone Detour We’ve all watched amazing drone footage of stunning locations on…

cruising the galaxy

Taking to the high seas in summer 2022, Disney Cruise Line’s new Disney Wish ocean liner will feature an immersive new Star Wars experience aimed squarely at grown-up fans of the saga (but open to younglings during daylight hours), in the form of a stylish, high-end watering hole that wouldn’t look out of place on Dryden Vos’ First Light. The Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge will be a world away from Oga’s Cantina at Galaxy’s Edge, erring towards the more refined and sophisticated social area one might find on Canto Bight. Guests will be able to partake of an array of exotic beverages (including blue milk) while watching the galaxy pass by through an enormous, seven-pane viewport, as the party ship jumps in and out of lightspeed, taking in famous worlds and…
