  1. “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is kinda generic, I get what they’re going for and it’s not awful, but it doesn’t fit Disneyland’s layout at all. The closest that park has is “Mickey’s Toon Town”, then “Critter Country” and “New Orleans Square”, with the only other non “-land” name being Main Street, U.S.A., and “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is a very different feel from all those.

  2. I think it works. SW is a different concept, even how Disney is warping it, and works this way. This way, they can fit in any SW character, locale, ship, event as "just stopping by."

    And they could have called it "Star Wars Land" and one or two or 20 million visitors would still shell out credits to get stuck in its crowded lines, of course.

    Sounds like a Star Wars branded smart phone… or ladies' razor.
