Though some wondered if soft drinks from this universe would be sold inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disney confirmed this week that they would be selling Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Sprite and Dasani bottled water in specially-designed bottles that will fit in with the Star Wars theme. You can check out the design of these bottles above, and as you might expect guests will only be able to find these designs this on Batuu.

New concept art showcasing Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance transporter shown off

Also this weekend a new piece of concept art showing off the Resistance shuttle that will take guests “off world” during the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction was released. This transport shuttle isn't actually part of the main ride experience, but is actually one component of a lengthy pre-show experience. Unfortunately, though we have this new piece of concept art to check out, there is still no release date for this attraction which has been delayed until later this year, and will not open with the rest of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. 

Story behind Captain Rex appearance revealed

Though we already knew that original Star Tours pilot Captain Rex would be appearing at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge inside the Oga's Cantina watering hole, over the weekend Lucasfilm story group member Matt Martin shared exactly how this character went from flying ships to becoming a DJ:

“The short story is Rex flunked his way out of Star Tours, and eventually through some misadventures, he found his way to the Rebellion in the final battle of the galactic civil war, the battle of Jakku. In an epic TIE Fighter chase, he ends up crash landing on Baatu. There he is rescued by the local droidsmith Mubo, where he is repaired and made into a DJ for Oga’s cantina.”
