Disney Partners with Coca-Cola for Star Wars Galaxy's Edge

On Sunday at Star Wars Celebration in a snowy (seriously) Chicago, we finally got our first substantial look at The Mandalorian. Throwback methods, like building and using ship models for spaceflight (which they showed a small featurette documenting) will continue tying this Star Wars step forward to its source.

The Lego Star Wars display contains 36,440 Stormtroopers.

"This is the biggest attraction we've ever built", Scott Trowbridge, Portfolio Creative Executive at Walt Disney Imagineering, said during the presentation.

We really don't know what to expect, but with just eight months to go until Episode IX hits theaters, we are holding out hope that there will be a ton of new information for Disney and Lucasfilm to share today.

The show is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order, per Favreau's description. Recently, the franchise has alternated years between advancing the main story (with stars Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren and a selection of actors from the 1977-1983 franchise films) and doing side stories, such as a prequel on Han Solo's life called "Solo: A Star Wars Story".

"The travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic."
