How Disney Imagineers Made Droid Tracks at Galaxy’s Edge

Galaxy’s Edge is made up of thousands of multiple parts, including such detail as droid tracks throughout the 14 acre expansion. The OC Register found out how these tracks were made.

One of the most memorable days over the past three years at the Disneyland construction site of the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge themed land involved a construction worker riding on a droid skateboard that left R2-D2 “footprints” in the freshly poured cement.

“I’ll set the scene for you,” Walt Disney Imagineering art director Kirstin Makela said. “We’re on a construction site. There’s lots of people around. There’s some people pouring concrete. They’re all dirty. They’re getting all their tools and they’re stamping. Then all of a sudden one of them just jumps on this little trolley and someone else pulls them through the concrete and they leave little droid tracks.”

The man-made droid tracks will be easy enough to find in the Black Spire Outpost village on the Star Wars planet of Batuu, the setting for the new 14-acre themed land coming to the Anaheim theme park.
