Now in a soft opening in Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can meet the lovable orange droid, BB-8!
Inside of Star Wars Launch Bay, at the old Disney Infinity video game area, you enter the Resistance Base where you are lead up to a set of blast doors. Upon your group being ready, the blast doors slide open and reveal a private room set up with 2 Cast Members and BB-8 himself.
You can talk to BB-8 about the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi film, let him know you support the Resistance, or show off your amazing light side fashion and gear before getting a photo with him.
As with all soft openings, it is not guaranteed that BB-8 will be available when you visit the park. His meet and greet officially opens April 14, 2017 during the Star Wars Galactic Nights special event.
The whole area outside of Star Wars Launch Bay has also gotten prepared for the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars film franchise. Numerous banners depicting every Star Wars film are throughout the area, as well as advertisements for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars Launch Bay was also updated recently last year to include more scenes from the Rogue One movie and the future of Star Wars films.
