    Exclamation Walt Disney Imagineering Gives Glimpse at Star Wars Audio-Animatronics

    Walt Disney Imagineering Gives Glimpse at some of the Audio-Animatronics for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge during a media preview and a new promotional video:

    Dok-Ondar, the owner of a black market antiquities shop in the land, will barter with customers who want to haggle over prices. Imagineering show programmer Amy Goodwin peppered Dok with questions and the surly alien creature responded in an alien tongue.

    He has two moods, Goodwin said. He can be happy or frustrated.

    They had me at "audio-animatronics" and especially because it has a real face instead of relying on a projection. They do amazing work when they are allowed to.
