It was along with the debut of Super Hero HQ (2015-2016) grand opening, an interactive lower level to the Innoventions building. This was set as the precursor to the recently announced Star Wars Land at the Disney D23 on August 15, 2015. This lower level gave guests the opportunity to enter a "Galaxy Far Far Away", with character meet-n-greets such as, the evil dark lord of the Sith, Darth Vader, Han Solo's sidekick and lovable wookie, Chewbacca; and the mysterious bounty hunting Boba Fett. The location opened with said characters in the winter of 2015, but in January 2016 saw the introduction of new foe, Kylo Ren (who actually replaced Darth Vader until mid October 2016). Guests are given a variety of exhibits, such as props and costumes used in the films/TV shows, and an area to buy Star Wars merchandise. On December 16, 2017 during the theme park's "Galactic Nights" event, the Launch Bay was updated to include displays containing various models and props from The Last Jedi in honor of the film's release a day earlier.
