One of the featured starships at Galaxy’s Edge, the Star Wars theme park that is a new part of Disneyland, never made it on screen.
Collider reported, “the Tie Echelon, is new and has yet to be seen in any Star Wars movie. And based on what I learned about how the ship landed in the park, it probably won’t be.”
That’s because many years ago, when director Colin Trevorrow was still helming Star Wars: Episode IX, I heard he and his design team were asked to help come up with a ship for Galaxy’s Edge. When I first heard it, I figured there was no way it was true. But then I realized they must have started designing the park years ago and maybe there was some truth to the story.
While it remains to be seen if the TIE Echelon will show up in J.J. Abrams Episode IX (The Rise of Skywalker), it’s cool to know something from Trevorrow’s version of Episode IX was actually built in real life.
