The big Disney Parks and Resorts panel at this year’s D23 Expo won’t begin until 6:30 pm EST on Saturday, July 15 – a panel which, we’re assuming, many a revelation will be dropped on us, including a lot more information about Star Wars Land – but it seems like we may have gotten one of the big reveals early.
A Redditor has just uncovered a rather interesting description in the source code of the Disney Parks Blog that contains this little nugget: “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Announced as Name for Star Wars Lands at Disney parks.” If accurate, and if it means what it pretty obviously is intended to, then the official, real, honest-to-goodness name for Star Wars Land will be, of course, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
On the one hand, this would be a somewhat prosaic moniker, one that blends immediately in with all the scores of other Star Wars novels, comic books, short stories, and videogames. On the other hand, however, it’s a title that perfectly fits with the land’s premise and backstory – a planet on the very edge of the outer rim and known space both, one forgotten by “civilized” galactic society and where many an exciting adventure awaits guests.
We’ll known for certain within the next eight hours.
