At the moment the answer would appear to be, no.
It launches in three months and they don’t even have a trailer let alone a final cut. The rumor mills are all saying extensive reshoots are underway. Normally, I’d be the first to say that’s normal but in the world of Disney Star Wars it can only mean disaster is in the wind.
Disney is justly terrified that their investment is turning into an abject catastrophe on every front. Solo, was the first Star Wars movie to lose money at the boxoffice. SW Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland has exploded minutes after launch. As of this writing the walk on time for Smuggler’s Run is 60 minutes. Disney has to be sweating blood over that because it’s only been two weeks since the opening and Avatar Flight of Passage has a 105 minute walk on time, (FOP is now a two year old ride).
Even more nail biting has to be going on over the fate of their Star War’s hotel, the good ship Halcyon.
For those not in the know, this a hotel where you are basically locked in with your children for two days as you “experience” a galactic cruise. You are allowed one… O-N-E… port call at Galaxy’s Edge.
Two days is both the minimum and maximum time you will be staying aboard the Halcyon. I can’t speak for anyone else but I know I’d be looking for the escape pod after thirty minutes of “why didn’t we go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Dad?!”
Anyway after two days you would then have to pack back up and shift over to your real hotel for the rest of your stay. Presumably the Halcyon can be reskinned as a real hotel after this fails, although it will be the only hotel in Disney World without windows. In short there is no way in hell I’d stay there under any circumstances.*
Bob Iger has to be praying that Star Wars IX will be a so good, it will reverse the tide of rolling disasters sweeping over Lucasfilm.
When you bring George Lucas back on as creative consultant, you are in a world beyond desperate.
*I’m totally lying. If they turned it into a new Adventurer’s Club I’d stay there for a week. Although I wouldn’t bring the children along since I wouldn’t want them to see me like that. god I miss the Colonel.
