Smuggler's Run looks great, as does the rest of Galaxy's Edge.

I know they aren't saying anything technical but I'm curious how many pods there are in total. I'd love to do a behind the scenes tour of this.

Line moved very quick and rarely posted above 15 minutes for the CM previews, so probably lots!

I'm at work so I can't watch the ride video with sound so please forgive me if this is obvious/already answered: How functional are those cockpit controls? I gather that the ones outlined in green are the ones that 'do something'.

As far as I could tell, it was only the buttons that light up that directly impact the ride. The pilots are controlling the ship. One the vertical movement and the other horizontal. Pilot on the right gets to activate lightspeed as well. The other positions (gunner and engineer) have less to do (basically just press a button, though gunner has the option of doing automatic or trying to aim for yourself in "manual").

I remember 7 pods per circle being posted.
And, 4 circles of pods were there, so..... = 28 pods in total?

Two circles for the pods - the two others are in the
enclosed building below the exposed two.

^ I would love to see an overhead shot (magically seen through the roof), of the maze of hallways and holding areas they've created, to make you think you're eventually boarding the Falcon in front. :smile:

LOVED your video walkthrough. The perfect length and totally captured everything. I also appreciate how there is limited signage directing you which way to go. Gives you the ability to just get lost in the area. Prices for food and drink seem absolutely insane, but not terribly surprised by that.

You actually don't board the Falcon while it's sitting in front. During the pre-show, Hondo is talking to Chewbacca, and you see the Falcon fly in and land behind Hondo. So, when you board the Falcon, it has moved to a different loading area. Which is where you board the ship.
