Disneyland has temporarily put aside its commitment to immersive storytelling experiences in favor of unloading certain Star Wars: Galaxys Edge merchandise that collects dust while the coronavirus keeps the doors of Anaheim theme park closed.
Disneyland has converted the WonderGround Gallery retail space in downtown Disney into a Star Wars Trading Post pop-up selling once-exclusive Galaxys Edge merchandise.
But wait! How did a shipment of interstellar goods from the Star Wars planet of Batuu get to an open-air mall in Anaheim, an exotic location not even in a galaxy far, far away?
Blame space pirate Hondo Ohnaka and his gang of rogue smugglers.

The Star Wars Trading Post pop-up store in Downtown Disney sells Jedi robes from Black Spire Outfitters, dejarik board games from the Toydarian Toymaker, pre-built droids from Droid Depot, and cuddly porgs from Creature Stall. There are even lightsabers inherited from Dok-Ondars Den of Antiquities.
The temporary store offering Star Wars: Galaxys Edge Expeditions has been filled with weather-beaten crates and barrels that would look right at home in the Black Spire outpost. Worn rags were draped over the WonderGround panel on the front and the retail displays inside the store.
Star Wars: Galaxys Edge merchandise will be available in the WonderGround Gallery owned and operated by Disney for the foreseeable future, according to Disney officials. The WonderGround Gallery will return to Downtown Disney at a later date.

Disney bragged once that merchandise sold in Galaxys Edge would be exclusively available in Star Wars land. But COVID-19 has changed everything.
The original concept behind Galaxys Edge was that the 14-acre land was in a separate universe from Disneyland with Black Spire Outpost visitors walking the Star Wars planet of Batuu at least according to the backstory developed by Walt Disney Imagineering.
This meant that those lightsabers sold at Doc-Ondars Den of Antiquities and the stuffed alien creatures available in the Creature Stall could only be found in Galaxys Edge. Provided you can suspend your beliefs enough to forget that the same merchandise was sold to both Batuu West at Disneyland and Batuu East at Disney Hollywood Studios.

Walt Disney Imagineerings’ immersive storytelling has gone so far as to ban the use of the words Star Wars and Galaxys Edge in any attraction, restaurant, or store nationwide.
None of the Galaxys Edge merchandise was supposed to appear in the Tomorrowlands Star Trader gift shop or the Emporium on Main Street USA Now the story bubble has been burst so completely by the coronavirus that exclusive Galaxys Edge merchandise is being sold in an off-the-planet store in Downtown Disney. When did Anaheim become part of the Star Wars galaxy?
Galaxys Edge merchandise had already started seeping out of Batuu, presumably on a hacked starcruiser piloted by space villains. In August, Target stores have opened Star Wars Trading Post locations in big box stores that feature exclusive Galaxys Edge toys, dolls, droids and lightsabers. Floridas Magic Kingdom was storing Galaxys Edge merchandise in its Emporium gift shop since early September.
