The Rise of Our Animatronic Lords Just Got a Lot Cutter With Disney Imagineering Tests Star Wars BD universe droids in Disneyland.
The adorable robot companion Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, that were most recently seen on The Mandalorian and The Boba Fett book, were caught on camera wandering around Galaxy Edge’s Black Spire Outpost at Disneyland (Sorry, Walt Disney World). Check out the video below captured by user X. @DisneyDan.
The green, blue and orange BD units moved seamlessly through the park in an interaction that thematic Star Wars the earth needs more. As of today, the robots are only testing, so they are not yet an official feature of Galaxy’s Edge. “As we often do, our R&D Imagineers are testing out one of their latest robotic characters, and today we’re excited to be able to do so with guests at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park”, Disneyland spokespersons said in a statement shared by journalist Scott Gustin.
The BD units debuted a few days ago at the IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2023). X user @Davsca1 shared one of the first looks To them from the presentation of Disney Imagineering at IROS 2023.
Try your luck seeing the BD Droids in person at Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge. I know I will!
