(KGTV) — Want to assume the role of a Jedi or Sith at "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" when it opens? It won't be cheap.

Disneyland is rolling out the big guns — or blasters — for its new "Star Wars" land, creating an immersive land that appears just as fans would imagine from the beloved films.

Naturally as guests roam the land to music of John Williams, the need to accessorize may overwhelm them. Which is why Disneyland has set up depots to customize two important tools of the trade.

At Savi's Workshop, guests can build their very own lightsaber. Under the instruction of "the Gatherers," visitors will choose their path, assembling their saber with:

  • 1 hilt
  • 4 sleeves (pick 2)
  • 2 emitters (pick 1)
  • 2 pommel caps (pick 1)
  • 2 sets of activation plates and switches (pick 1 set)

The Gatherers will then attach a 36-inch lightsaber blade to complete the process. The cost: $199.99, carrying case included. More accessories to customize lightsabers can be purchased at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities inside "Galaxy's Edge."

Over at Droid Depot, guests can build their own Astromech droid. Guests will first choose from either the BB-Series (BB-8 model) or R-Series (R2-D2 model). Then they'll assemble their new companion using a set of parts rolling along the shop's conveyor belt:


  • Dome
  • Dome Connection Plate
  • Body Sphere
  • Motivator


  • Dome
  • Body
  • Center Leg
  • Set of Side-Legs

Then from a set of instructions, guests will build their droid unit. Once complete, the droid is paired with a remote control and activated.

Custom droids will cost $99.99 and come with a carrying box and instructions. Droid Depot will also sell more accessories to further customize droids.

Reservations could be required to build a lightsaber or droid depending on demand, the park's website adds.

So while the price may be a little steep, it will certainly deliver on the park's promise to fully immerse guests into the "Star Wars" universe.
