Everyone’s favorite Star Wars character replaces a boring turtle!
WALT DISNEY WORLD — Some were shocked back in January when Epcot’s The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion abruptly canceled “Turtle Talk with Crush” and replaced it with a similar experience involving Star Wars’ Jar Jar Binks. Although said to be a temporary change – a “test run” according to Imagineer Carly Aldenkamp – the show has proved to be incredibly popular with families.
Aldenkamp told Uncle Walt’s Insider, “This will eventually be a headline attraction over in the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land at the Studios, but I’m not surprised at its success, no. Kids and parents alike love Jar Jar. And Gungans are aquatic creatures, so it is a natural fit here at the Seas. We may just keep it here.”
