Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge to Feature Oga's Cantina

Personally, I wouldn't mind a highball glass shaped like a lightsaber handle, though after a few of those, it might be hard to fly the Millennium Falcon.

Announced Thursday on the Disneyland blog, Oga's Cantina "will be serving pilots, bounty hunters, smugglers, locals and galactic travelers alike, when it opens in 2019". How you perform on this ride will supposedly affect the interactions you have with the other characters in the Land.

No self-respecting remote outpost on the edge of the galaxy would call itself a smuggler's planet without a cantina, and Black Spire Outpost is no exception.

Run by an alien proprietor known as Oga Garra, his cantina welcomes all kinds of good and bad clientele, but he also makes sure to keep his patrons in line.

The world number two stood as the highest seed in the tournament with every intention to achieve an early round victory. Caroline Wozniacki returns the ball during her women's singles first round match against Samantha Stosur .

The initial rollout of liquor sales will take place at the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attraction in the Oga's Cantina that's part of the complex, scheduled to open next year. You'll never know when a stormtrooper or another familiar face will show up. The post says the tavern, dubbed Oga's Cantina, will serve "libations for adults". "As quirky and talkative as ever, he's still trying to do his best on the job", reads the official announcement.

And for only the second time in at least the California Disneyland's history, the cantina will be a place you can buy alcohol (the first is the secretive Club 33 in the New Orleans quarter).

For those reading who are socially well-adjusted people with sane, rational lives, RX-24 was the animatronic robot who served as the pilot on the original version of Star Tours. The mention of "famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using "otherworldly" methods" makes me think they'll be much more unique than regular alcoholic drinks with a Star Wars pun. How immersive can it be with thousands of sweaty tourists shoulder to shoulder? Plus, the fact that they're served in "unique vessels" makes me think we could be getting some intricate Star Wars themed drinkware. It sounds pretty ambitious.
