Disney is now hiring actors for their new, highly anticipated land “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge”, which is set to open this summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

According to the casting call breakdown, Disney is looking for actors at “Savi’s Workshop” located in the “Black Spire Outpost,” an apparel shop which Disney says provides “functional clothing suitable for a variety of occasions and worlds.” 

The group of “Gatherers” operate within the workshop, which is packed with ancient relics they’ve collected throughout the galaxy, and they are experts in helping people design and build lightsabers, Disney describes in its job description. “In this exclusive experience, guests will feel like a Jedi as they build these elegant weapons from a more civilized age,” Disney says.

The “Gatherers” are slightly quirky and mysterious, Disney says, and personable and humorous, so actors should have “good comedic and improvisational instincts.” 

The casting call is at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Rehearsal Facility on Tuesday, May 21, at 4 p.m. 

Disney asks that actors be prepared with a script posted in the job description. 

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opens up August 29, 2019.
