Edge of tomorrow 2 plot
It’s also an attraction that will deliver on many of the early promises of Galaxy’s Edge, boasting full-scale, highly active droids, alien creatures, lightsabers and an impressive use of vehicle movement that succeeds in conveying the power of the magic-like Force at the heart of the “Star Wars” universe. When Galaxy’s Edge opened at Disneyland on May 31 and didn’t immediately result in punishing crowds at the Anaheim resort, questions were raised.
