All that really needs to be said about Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser that hasn’t been already is that Poe Dameron, Oscar Isaac himself, stepped aboard the Halcyon—proof that no one’s ever really gone. The actor who really seemed like he was done during the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker press tour showed up on opening weekend of the experience.
As seen in a fun YouTube video from Disney Parks, Isaac has really renewed hope that he’s at least on speaking terms with Lucasfilm to explore where we might see Dameron next. Listen, I know he just pushed buttons and wielded a lightsaber with childlike glee. That’s enough for me from his previous position of looking like he was never coming back again. And whether it’s a movie or a show—please don’t let it take as long as it did for Ewan McGregor to get to do Obi-Wan Kenobi.
In other Lucasfilm-related news, the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular recently opened back up at Hollywood Studios. Having never seen it before, it was pretty impressive to see a fun demo of how stunt work gets made in the movies but with a whole lotta action hero (and heroine!) attitude.
Growing up on the Indy movies, the behind the scenes premise with earnest sentimentality and humor really appealed to me; I’m glad there is something to continue to expose the kids, whose parents maybe dragged them to see it but who were IN by the opening boulder sequence, to the property until James Mangold’s Indiana Jones 5.
