New Star Wars Planet Batuu Revealed At Star Tours

Mark Hamill Surprising Fans on Disneyland's 'Star Wars' Ride Is the Best Thing You'll See Today

Depending on the side users choose, their app will be reskinned for five weeks, with Grab vehicles transforming into Star Wars vehicles in-app, to represent their choice.

In the lead up to the release of the latest Star Wars blockbuster on Dec 14, Asian ride-hailing giant Grab has collaborated with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia to not just introduce elements of the movie to its app but gamify its commuters' experience.

In video that Hamill shared to Twitter on Tuesday, a park staffer tells visitors how "the captain did mention something about a special passenger" joining them. As the employees eyebrows went up, he continued, "Oh, and the Force is strong with this one".

Star Wars fans would have noticed a notification on their Grab app over the past couple of days asking them to choose a side - The Resistance or The First Order.

The "Star Wars" icon also commented on the video, writing, "It took me long enough - but my childhood dream of working Disneyland finally came true!" Expect to see more fans delighted with his goofy antics, which often include his crashing a children's hospital to lift the kids' spirits. "While Batuu may be new to us, it is clearly already familiar to many characters from the Star Wars saga as a stepping off point for epic adventures".
