'Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge' Special Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris Headed to Freeform
Star Wars fans can't all make it to the new planet of Batuu, so Disney is bringing Batuu to them.
Freeform announced Wednesday that it will air a two-hour special on Sept. 29 called "Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Adventure Awaits." Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, it will take viewers to Batuu, the location seen in the new themed area that opened at Disneyland in May and the one due to open at Disney World later this month.
A slew of celebrity guests will join Harris in the special, including Keegan-Michael Key, Kaley Cuoco, Jay Leno, Sarah Hyland, and Miles Brown, among others. Together, they'll show off the new lands and share information about how the planet came to life. The expansion has already been drawing huge crowds in Southern California, so it'll be a great chance to explore Batuu without waiting in lines.
"Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Adventure Awaits" is part of Freeform's 30 Days of Disney programming and it premieres Sunday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. ET. The special is executive produced by Brad Lachman.
