A R2-D2 astromech unit has been seen roaming freely around Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in what appears to be tests for a future park addition, in line with original park plans.
The “play tests” with R2-D2 in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge are part of an ongoing innovation process looking at new ways for guests to experience Disney parks, according to Disneyland officials. The experiences being tested may or may not end up as theme park offerings, officials said.
R2-D2 has been seen rolling around Galaxy’s Edge near the entrance to the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run attraction on several occasions in recent days, according to MiceChat.
“This makes us wonder if the small army of semi-autonomous droids promised for the land, but never delivered, may finally make their way to Galaxy’s Edge,” MiceChat wrote in a recent Disneyland update. “We sure hope so.”
