With my eyes closed, I squeeze the paper tight in my hands and carefully whisper the name of the never-heard-of land. A minute goes by, and I barely dare to breathe. It feels like I'm turning into a bubbly glass of sparkling water. And then, all of a sudden, I smell earthworms. You know, as you do after a summer rain. And when I open my eyes, I'm surrounded by mountains. Designed in Sweden. This set of 10 little acro — er, crocobats are designed to nest and stack to build a tower of Each letter has corresponding shapes kids can As Disneyland's rides got more complex, the park needed more room.

It was in service of getting people under the berm and into the fictional space of the ride building. All those switchbacks, drops, and omnimoves provided structure for a story. On so-called dark rides, one tableau here gives way to another tableau there , a spatialized version of a classical story's temporal sequences.

The whole experience of Galaxy's Edge, then, becomes one very long filmic take. You never well, let's say rarely experience anything you wouldn't find in Black Spire Outpost. There's a stand that sells both blue and green milk. The alcoves of the souk are real shops. Most of the signage is in the Aurebesh alphabet, translatable via the Disney app. In the language of story-building, that's called diegesis. Everything is diegetic, in-story. On a walk around the park, Asa Kalama, a bearded imagineer in tech-regulation khakis, shows me an even deeper diegetic level. Think about what all that requires.
Kerrison's story team comes up with that bit of plot and writes the dialog of the messages. Kalama's interactive group has to code all that into the minigames and link those games to Bluetooth beacons around the park. This fine-grained, fractal detail adds to the sense that not only is Batuu in canon, but so is anyone who buys a ticket. On my second trip to Batuu—to the one in Anaheim—I watched a little girl race off Smugglers Run at hyperspeed and slam into her dad.
Kids, right? All the Starwarsification didn't much move my adult partner, until she took over my phone to help our year-old hack the giant First Order ship looming over one corner of Black Spire Outpost.

Its running lights flashed and its engine roared, and so did her delight. She was in the story. In , realistic , highly rendered videogames were ascendant, and developers and the people who study narrative were arguing about whether a game could—or should—tell a story.
Celia Pearce, a game designer and former theme park builder, coined a phrase to cut through the fight: spatial narrative. Games didn't invent that, of course.
Consider medieval churches. For attendees, many of whom were illiterate and didn't understand Church Latin, the church was the Bible—stations of the cross along the nave or in stained glass, important characters represented as statuary in the transept. It's also true that narratives—books, movies, whatever—have spatial elements.
Action takes place. I think Pirates of the Caribbean or the Wizarding World of Harry Potter are immersive without being narrative, necessarily.
Ditto the new heavy-immersion theme parks spreading across the Middle East and China. But Galaxy's Edge is a full-fledged chronotopia. It exists in the sanctioned Star Wars paracosm; it's a door between our universe and theirs. Two doors, actually.

Your character in the phone-based games in California persists if you go to Florida, and vice versa. The lands are identical in architecture albeit inverted on the north-south axis. Canonically, in the Star Wars universe, they're the same place, on the same day, over and over; several imagineers mentioned Groundhog Day to me as a touch point. I'd like to see Bakhtin unravel that chronotopic fuckmuddle. Actually, I bet a gamer could speed-run that four-dimensional topology.
The common element that science fiction and games—and even cities—share is world-building. World-building rules are especially overt at theme parks like Disneyland, if you look for them. In other words, Disney has literalized world-building and made a space for people to live out fan fiction—a massively multiplayer online role-playing game with a chewy live-action role-playing center.

The only thing that doesn't work in an immersive environment of such refinement is—with apologies—you. It's your baseball cap, your shorts, your churro. Or my notepad and backpack. Disney parks have a longtime rule against adults wearing elaborate costumes, which militates against that instantiated fanfic; Galaxy's Edge is no Comic-Con in terms of Han Solos and Boba Fetts.
