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 tiny Porg were carried away by the Millennium Falcon while the crowd looked on in amazement. Al Roker seemed to be having a great time, especially as the iconic ship flopped in the distance. Little Porgs were floating around and the people in the house seemed very confused by the whole thing. Perhaps the funniest thing about the entire clip was the fact that the balloons were CGI and there probably wasn’t anything in the sky for people on Earth to interact with. Star Wars fans were eating well this morning as Grogu made an appearance as well. The Mandalorian’s biggest star has floated as part of a collaboration with Funko to celebrate the baby. It looks like people on social media have really fallen out of this real balloon, too. All in all, a good show for Densi and Lucasfilm on Thanksgiving Day.
“This remote outpost on the edge of the galaxy was once a busy crossroads along ancient light-speed trade routes, but its importance has been outpaced by the rise of space travel,” Disney said of Planet Batu on its site. Now home to those who prefer to stay away from the mainstream, it is a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between frontiers and unknown space. It is also a convenient haven for those who wish to avoid the expansion of first-class access. While Batuu has Being new to us, it is clearly already familiar to many of the characters from the Star Wars saga as a starting point for epic adventures.”
