Fans of Star Wars are going insane over a fake Galaxy’s Edge Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon.
Star Wars fans couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade’s Galaxy’s Edge balloon.
It was essentially an augmented reality experience that some people were able to view through their goggles.
As the crowd watched in awe, the Millennium Falcon whisked away an alien and his little Porg.
Al Roker appeared to be having a good time, especially as the iconic ship sped away.
Porgs were swarming the house, and everyone seemed befuddled.
The fact that the balloons were CGI and there was probably nothing in the sky for the people on the ground to react to was probably the funniest part of the entire segment.
Grogu made an appearance as well, so Star Wars fans had a good breakfast this morning.
As part of a collaboration with Funko to commemorate The Child, The Mandalorian’s biggest star floated through.
People on social media seemed to have a lot of fun with that very real balloon as well.
Overall, Dinsey and Lucasfilm had a strong showing on Thanksgiving Day.
On their website, Disney said of the planet Batuu, “This remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel.”
“Now a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders, and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space, it has become home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream.”
It’s also a convenient safe haven for those trying to avoid the First Order’s expanding reach.
While Batuu is new to us, it is clearly familiar to many Star Wars characters as a starting point for epic adventures.”
