Remember when being in to Star Wars typically meant you were a big time geeben? Yeah, me too. Being a closeted Star Wars fan was hell.
Now, don't take this the wrong way. I love sport and everything about it but the fact that I had to hide my love of Star Wars for fear of being labelled a nerd, is crazy. Especially when you consider the same nerd-labelling blokes literally swooned over good looking grown men who are good at kicking around a plastic/rubber ball and know every obscure fact about them to the extent it's stalkerish. Yet they are NOT gimps... Seems legit.
Anyway, it seems there's been a correction in the force and now it's no longer nerdy to froth Star Wars. In fact, it's super dope. That's why Disneyland Resort's new attraction, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, has me openly fizzing at the bunghole.
As a self-confessed Star Wars nerd, this gets my jimmies all in a bunch. There's tonnes of ridiculously loose stuff to get around, such as:
- SAVI'S WORKSHOP - A magical, clandestine workshop where you can build your own lightsaber. I picture myself using my lightsaber for mundane tasks such as opening letters, cutting sandwiches, manscaping etc.
- MILLENIUM FALCON: SMUGGLER'S RUN - You can legit fly the Millenium Falcon. 'Nuff said.
- DROID DEPOT - Essentially, it's a build your own droid wonderland. So yeah pretty dope. Again, I just want a drone to help me with my manscaping.
- OGA's CANTINA - Sells. Booze. How bloody good is that? You can literally let the ankle-biters run wild, while you sit there and get blotto. Blardy oath.
This is but just a small smattering of the type of looseness you can get around at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
In fact, do yourself a favour and wrap your eyeballs around the behind-the-scenes video below. It makes me all sorts of tingly in all sorts of places.
I'd like to say it's the force that's doing it to me, but I think I'm just a little to pumped up.
