The immersive experience Star Wars created at the Galactic Starcruiser has completed its final voyage, and now the cast and crew of the Halcyon are sharing their memories to honor their time spent together. The Halcyon Starcruiser officially began its voyages on March 1, 2022, and a year and a half later, the immersive experience has closed its launch pod doors once and for all. The 3-day, 2-night experience was supposedly a celebration of the ship’s 275th anniversary voyage that took passengers on the adventure of a lifetime during the height of the Resistance-First Order conflict, and now, the Halcyon will remain docked on its home planet of Chandrila – the homeworld of Mon Mothma, Chancellor of the New Republic.
Following the completion of the Galactic Starcruiser’s final voyage, the cast and crew have taken to social media to share their appreciation for the many memories they made during the course of the Halcyon’s adventures. The immersive experience took many meticulous moving parts to put on its 48-hour show, and those who were able to bring the characters of the Galactic Starcruiser to life are now sharing what it was like to be a part of the Star Wars galaxy.
Kamryn Burton, who shared the likeness of cruise director Lenka Mok and intergalactic superstar Gaya aboard the Halcyon, talks about the importance of being able to say goodbye to something while still maintaining the lessons it taught. She also reminds people to “never forget to ignite the spark,” a touching ode to Lenka’s Resistance allegiance.
As the first Gaya to debut at the Star Wars experience, mayhemmoten shares everything that the “Rockstar Queen” of the Halcyon taught her. Gaya’s strength and confidence helped her to honor her own, and she knows that the Starcruiser’s closure won’t be the end of their story.
Ben Bailey writes a touching tribute to the Resistance stowaway and makeshift mechanic Sammie, coining his experience as “the adventure of a lifetime.” He credits his fellow crew and the passengers for bringing such magic to the Galactic Starcruiser with each and every voyage they embarked on together.
Portraying an impressive collection of 4 different characters during his Halcyon experience, Justin Beard thanks each character he brought to life. From the lovable scoundrel Raithe Kole to the infamous Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, Justin shares that all of them taught him even more about himself with each new journey.
As a frequent face of the First Order’s Lieutenant Croy, Adam Reilly draws on some of Croy’s familiar humor first before he confesses that words don’t suffice in describing his time on the Halcyon. They also share inspiring words about the death and rebirth of galaxies that beautifully represent the Starcruiser’s current journey.
