Ethel Brunt Emily Blunt. The trailer, focusing on Johnson’s character, Skipper Frank, was introduced by the big man himself, and showcases a lot more humor than previous previews we’ve seen, going as so far as to shrink the title card of Johnson’s own magnificent co-star.

Okay, so where were we?
Recently The Nerds of Color were lucky enough to visit the planet of Batuu, aka Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland. And wanted to pass down some of our tips and tricks to you, our readers, for your next visit! In case you missed Part 1 of our coverage, we discussed intros to the land and linguistics while there, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, Blue and Green Milk, Oga’s Cantina, and Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. In this part, we’ll be discussing some of the food of Galaxy’s Edge, the shops at Black Spire Outpost, the Droid Depot, and Savi’s Lightsaber workshop.
So without further ado, punch it Chewie!
August 15, 2015. That was the date that Disney announced at their biennial D23 Expo that it was going to fulfill the fantasies of every Star Wars fan in the world. They were going to bring the universe George Lucas had created to life, and give us all the opportunity to become a part of the world of Luke, Han, Chewie, and Leia, and allow us to finally live our adventure too. At the time the implications and details behind all of that were top secret, and for years speculation among fans became rampant. What would the rides be like? Could we drink Blue Milk? Would there be a Cantina? Can you become a Jedi? And most importantly can we fly the Millennium Falcon?
Finally on May 31, 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge finally opened and answered all those questions. And The Nerds of Color were fortunate enough to have had a chance to visit the planet of Batuu twice. So after two trips, a couple of glasses of blue and green milk, and four trips on the Falcon, we would love to humbly be your guides, as we walk you, our loyal readers through the highlights, sights, tastes, experiences, and tips we have to share to prepare you for your trip to a galaxy far, far away!
The land is so massive, that we will need two, count ’em two, articles to cover everything. This first part will cover intros to the land and linguistics while there, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, Blue and Green Milk, Oga’s Cantina, and Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities.
