Project: Orange Harvest 

One of the first hints we had about Galaxy’s Edge coming to Disney Parks came at the D23 Expo in 2013. On the show floor there were crates with many messages hinting at Star Wars related contents. One very prominently displaying the phrase:

Orange Harvest: Speculation Beyond Imagination

This was a play on the codename for Return of the Jedi which was “Blue Harvest” title and and fictitious tagline that read “Horror Beyond Imagination”. 

One crate had a familiar shape cut out. It was a new cast member named “Artoo”. More hints would be dropped in years to come.
