THESE are the first new Star Wars crew characters to be unveiled for next year’s opening of the Galactic Supercruiser hotel at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
The first-of-its-kind, two-night immersive vacation experience in a galaxy far, far away opens to guests on March 1, 2022, making you the hero of your own story as you tour the galaxy on the Halcyon starcruiser.
Throughout your voyage, you’ll see, feel and live Star Wars, maybe even bumping into familiar faces such as Rey and Chewbacca – or encountering the malevolent Kylo Ren of the First Order.
But the starcruiser also brings with it a host of characters new to the Star Wars galaxy, created especially for the experience.
Jeremy Schofield, managing editor of WDW public relations has been introducing the heroes and villains on the official Disney Parks blog.
Leading off is starcruiser Captain Riyola Keevan, said to be charismatic, respected and trustworthy. She’s a strong and decisive leader, endearing herself to both her crew and her passengers by being fair to all and cool under pressure. You’ll likely find the captain on the ship’s bridge – and you’d be wise to listen carefully and follow her instructions.
Cruise Director Lenka Mok is your go-to crew member to discover all the fun and entertainment onboard. As the captain’s right-hand, it’s her job to ensure your voyage is an adventure. Optimistic and joyful, Mok’s happiness is derived from yours, so this is definitely someone you’ll want to meet!
Surely a close cousin of R2-D2, astromech droid SK-62O is Mok’s assistant cruise director, ensuring things run smoothly and on time. He keeps an eye on all the workings of the ship and is good in a pinch if anything should go awry. As it always does in a Star Wars adventure…
Sammie, the ship’s enthusiastic new mechanic has a good-natured personality that quickly won over the crew and makes him popular among guests. He’s eager to prove himself on such a well-appointed vessel, and his tasks always seem to get done … somehow.
D3-O9 is another droid you may see appear on viewscreens onboard the Halcyon starcruiser. She runs ship logistics, knows everyone and everything happening onboard and loves talking with passengers. Built centuries ago by D3 has seen the galaxy evolve, and isn’t shy about sharing her opinions.
Cue ominous music, here’s Lt. Harman Croy of the First Order. Ambitious and intimidating, he’s on special assignment to root out and expose any Resistance fighters aboard the ship. Will you help him? Will you support the Resistance? Or will you sit back and see things play out? The choice is yours.
