Buckle up for a cruise on the most storied vessel ever to sail the seven star systems.
The Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser immersive hotel experience is scheduled to open at Walt Disney World in March 2022. In preparation for the maiden voyage, Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney have teamed up to prime guests on the stories they’ll experience, through the introduction of a comic book miniseries titled Star Wars: Halcyon Legacy. The five-issue series – scheduled to debut early next year, will chronicle some of the storied history of the age-old cruise vessel.
Disney produced similar five-issue comic miniseries titled Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge as a companion to the opening of Galaxy’s Edge in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Both Ethan Sacks and Will Sliney – the creative team behind Galaxy’s Edge – have teamed up here for Halcyon Legacy.
According to the announcement from StarWars.com:
With a story that spans centuries, readers can revisit the iconic ship at different points in the Star Wars timeline, reunite with familiar faces like the ultimate scoundrel pairing of Lando and Hondo teaming up for the first time, and travel the stars with a featured tale that leads into the events of the Walt Disney World Resort experience, taking place between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. “As a life-long Star Wars fan, I’m thrilled to be a part of the team helping bring Halcyon Legacy to life,” adds Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “We’ve all been able to experience Star Wars in so many ways over the years, from watching the films to playing with the toys to reading the comics to even visiting Batuu and drinking at the cantina, but now Walt Disney World is taking things to the next level with this immersive, interactive experience. Our series will get you up to speed on this important part of the galaxy far, far away as you prepare to put on your cloak, pick up your lightsaber and blast off in Orlando.”
Han Solo once led us to believe Wookies may rip your arm out of your socket when they lose. So what happens when a Wookie yields a lightsaber? You’ll have to embark on a Halcyon cruise to find out.
