Star Wars fans couldn’t believe the wild Galaxy’s Edge balloon at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Basically, it was an AR experience that some people could see with their goggles. An alien and his little Porg were transported away by the Millennium Falcon while the crowd watched in amazement. Al Roker seemed to be enjoying himself, especially when the iconic ship rocket in the distance. Little Porgs floated around and people at home seemed to be massively confused all over. Perhaps the funniest thing about the whole segment was the fact that the balloons were CGI and there was probably nothing in heaven for people on earth to react to. Star Wars fans ate well this morning when Grogu also showed up. Mandalorian’s biggest star hovered through as part of a collaboration with Funko that celebrated The Child. People on social media seemed to really get a kick out of the very real balloon. All in all, a great show for Dinsey and Lucasfilm on Thanksgiving Day.
“This remote outpost on the edge of the galaxy was once a busy crossroads along the old underwater shipping trade routes, but its appearance was bypassed by the advent of hyper-space travel,” Disney said of the planet Batuu on their website. “Now it is home to those who prefer to stay away from the mainstream, and it has become a thriving port for smugglers, junk traders and adventurers traveling between the border and unknown spaces. It is also a convenient safe haven for them, “Batuu may be new to us, it’s clearly already known to many characters from the Star Wars saga as a starting point for epic adventures.”
