Disneyland is relocating 1,400 cast members to Batuu, according to the OC Register.

A new article outlines the experiences and reactions that existing Disneyland cast members had when they found out they were going to be part of the inaugural Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge team.

Galaxy’s Edge general manager Kappy Thorsen said cast members were “coming out of the woodwork” and interest was “off the charts” for the opportunity to work in the new Star Wars land.

“It really speaks to the Disney brand but also the Star Wars brand because people just want to be a part of it,” Thorsen said. “It actually made recruiting very easy, which was really fun and exciting.”

However, the relocation means that Disneyland will need to hire replacements for those who’ve gone to a galaxy far, far away. Are you up for the challenge? You can learn more about open positions at Disneyland here.
