Many congratulations to Galaxy’s Edge and the incredible work of the many imagineers behind it as they are awarded the Lumiere Award for Best Location Based Entertainment from the Advanced Imaging Society.
This honor is not presented every year, and is only awarded when innovation, technology, and creativity rise to a level of excellence the society believes to be worthy of recognition. Jim Chabin, president of the Advanced Imaging Society, calls Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge a “triumph in location-based entertainment that transports us to a galaxy far, far away.”
Chabin also said that the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction is “the most immersive, thrilling theme park attraction ever experienced, exemplary of the innovation we celebrate with the Lumiere Awards; it takes location based entertainment to a whole new level.”
The awards are handed out on 22nd January at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California.
