Add to the lengthy list of things that Disney does well: the framing of an elaborate advertising campaign as entertainment. Star Wars Galaxy's Edge: Adventure Awaits is 101 minutes of the most captivating self-promotion you'll ever see. It uses a star-studded crew of celebrity tour guides to help viewers fully appreciate the magnificence of this impressive destination that lets Star Wars fans interact with characters, join the Resistance effort, make their own lightsabers, and even fly the Millennium Falcon. The celebs seem genuinely awed by what Galaxy's Edge offers to fans and thoroughly enjoy the experience.

If visiting Galaxy's Edge in person isn't on your agenda for the near future, then Adventure Awaits really is the next best thing to being there in person. You'll get to glimpse the local hangouts in Black Spire Outpost, meet some of the colorful residents, and see how the immersive experience pulls fans into the Star Wars story from the moment they enter the park. It's a very thorough virtual visit (if that happens to be what you're looking for), but it's an even more powerful promotional tool for making you want to get there in person, which is important to keep in mind if you're thinking of watching with young Star Wars fans.
