Disney’s newest and most immersive resort experience – Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser – will set sail on March 1, 2022 for its first cruise among the stars. Guests aboard the glamorous Halcyon starcruiser will play out their own Star Wars story on this the first-of-its-kind, two-night immersive vacation experience in Walt Disney World.
Today, Disney Parks Blog released some details on a few of the characters guests can expect to meet on their voyage. Sure, guests may meet heroes of the Resistance like Rey and Chewie, or come face to face with the insanely ignitable Kylo Ren. But the starcruiser also brings with it a host of characters new to the Star Wars galaxy, created specifically for this cruise experience.
Here’s Disney’s description of a few of the characters you may meet:
Captain Riyola Keevan
Charismatic, respected and trustworthy, Captain Keevan will lead your voyage aboard the Halcyon starcruiser. She is a strong and decisive leader, endearing herself to both her crew and her passengers by being fair to all and cool under pressure – a skill she’s learned from her … “adventurous” history. You’ll likely find the captain on the ship’s bridge – and you’d be wise to listen carefully and follow her instructions.
Cruise Director Lenka Mok
There is much fun to be had aboard the starcruiser, and Lenka Mok is your go-to crew member to discover it all. As the captain’s right hand, Mok is in charge of onboard entertainment, so it’s her job to make sure your voyage is an adventure. An optimistic and joyful soul, Mok’s happiness is derived from yours, so this is definitely someone you’ll want to meet!
This astromech droid is Mok’s assistant cruise director, ensuring things run smoothly and on time. He keeps an eye on all the workings of the ship and is devoted to Mok and Captain Keevan. And while he loves to have fun with guests, he’s also good in a pinch if anything should go awry (one of his many hidden talents).
First Order Lt. Harman Croy
While the Halcyon starcruiser is a pleasure vessel, this is a stormy time in the galaxy as battles rage between the First Order and the Resistance – and it’s often impossible to avoid the conflict. The ambitious and intimidating Lt. Croy is on special assignment to root out and expose any Resistance fighters who are rumored to be aboard the ship. Will you help him? Will you support the Resistance? Will you just sit back and see how the whole thing plays out? The choice is yours.
