Star Wars Galaxy's Edge was originally supposed to be a very interactive experience in which guests "lived their own Star Wars adventure." There was supposed to be interaction with characters, as well as a "reputation system" where you had an opportunity to have some of your interactions in the land follow you during your visit.
For example, your performance on Millennium Falcon Smuggler's Run was intended to be part of the reputation you built in as much as if you really banged up the old hunk of junk, you might catch some shade from cast members or characters in the land afterword.
However, many of the interactions and the reputation system were scrapped due to cost-cutting and have now all been neatly placed behind a $5,000 - $6,000 paywall at the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser. One of the few interactive elements, although it is mostly one-sided is the character experience at Kylo Ren's ship.
Kylo Ren and his duo of Stormtroopers appear periodically in front of his docked starship to harass and recruit gathered guests at Galaxy's Edge. A Kylo Ren character interacts with guests via a series of pre-recorded comments and hand gestures. It is definitely a unique photo and video opportunity and should not be missed during your time at Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood Studios.
Here, Joe Darthmaz brings you a sampling of the Supreme Leader's interaction with the milling masses at Galaxy's Edge in our latest video release.
