BlogMickey.com is reporting that Disney is testing two X-Wing drones the size of a car to fly over the land during a one-time media event scheduled for December.
We have a pretty cool story to share with you today about upcoming plans to fly X-Wing drones over Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. According to sources, and backed up by the photos below, Disney is currently testing two SUV-sized X-Wing drones to fly over Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Disney has been somewhat secretly working on a project in the Cast Member parking lot at Disney’s Hollywood Studios over the past few weeks, constructing a temporary tent with a lot of security involved. The tent was constructed right around the time of the ABC Christmas special taping at the park, which led many to believe (us included) that it was an extra space for production equipment and crews to use. As we would come to learn, this space is actually being used by the teams working on the X-Wing drone project.
Now, before we get any further, we want to properly set expectations. It is our understanding that you, the Disney guest, will likely never see these drones with your own eyes. As we’re told, the X-Wing drones will just be utilized for the Rise of the Resistance media event and very likely not again. The X-Wing drones are just the latest in an ever-growing list of exclusive experiences that the media have received when covering Disney’s billion dollar land. Some other exclusive experiences never to be seen since are a battle stunt show that played out at Disneyland during the grand opening media event, and a walk-around Hondo Ohnaka character at the Walt Disney World grand opening media event. Now, if everything goes to plan, media will once again be treated to quite the impressive display of technology and Disney magic that the average guest won’t be able to experience when they visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in the coming months.
