As we get closer to 2019, we will no doubt be hearing more details about Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy Edge in the days ahead, and today just happens to be one of those days.
The Disney Parks Blog made an update today about one of the aspects of the park I know everyone is looking forward to visiting, and that is the local Cantina!
Their update revealed that it will be called Oga’s Cantina, which will be run by an alien named Oga Garra. Here are the full details about Oga’s Cantina from the Disney Parks Blog, including what guests can expect when it comes to food and drinks, and who may be stopping by the Cantina while we’re visiting:
Visitors come to this notorious local watering hole to unwind, conduct shady business, and maybe even encounter a friend…or a foe. Run by an intriguing alien proprietor, Oga Garra, the cantina adheres to a strict code of conduct that tries to keep its unruly patrons in check. But with a history of being a smugglers’ safe haven and a popular stopping point for those seeking to avoid the authorities, you can bet that the cantina has a story or two to tell.
Oga’s Cantina is the kind of establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy. And you never know when a stormtrooper or a familiar face will show up. Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using “otherworldly” methods, served in unique vessels. With choices for kids and libations for adults, the cantina will make for a great stop!
Musical entertainment is provided courtesy of RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid we first met in Star Tours, who has re-envisioned himself as the cantina’s DJ. As quirky and talkative as ever, he’s still trying to do his best on the job.
It really sounds like they’re going to make visiting Oga’s Cantina just like what Luke, Obi Wan, Han and Chewie experienced while they were at the Mos Eisley Cantina in “A New Hope,” and I think it sounds awesome!
With smugglers, bounty hunters, and stormtroopers showing up, drinks for both kids and adults, as well as music from the original Captain Rex, I really can’t wait to experience sitting down and having some drink with friends, and knowing that anything can happen while we’re there!
