Since its opening in 2019, Galaxy’s Edge has been a smashing success at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. In this highly themed area on both coasts, guests to the Black Spire Outpost on Batuu will encounter plenty of creators, sights, and sounds from the Star Wars galaxy.

Although they may run into the First Order and members of the Resistance like Rey Skywalker and Chewbacca, there are also plenty of non-living characters to delight guests.

One of the main highlights at Galaxy’s Edge is the Droid Depot, where guests can build their custom droids. This experience allows visitors to choose parts and components to assemble their droids, which can then interact with other droids in the land.

Moreover, the personality chips available at the Droid Depot add another layer of customization to these droids. By selecting different personality chips, guests can give their droids unique traits and characteristics, making each droid one-of-a-kind.

From BB-1, R2D2, Chopper, and more, droids outside the Droid Depot and Star Tours are a huge part of Galaxy’s Edge. You’ll find their tracks all over the walking paths leading to the Black Spire Outpost and the famed Millennium Falcon.

Realizing the love for Star Wars droids, Disney has also introduced new entertainment options to Disney World and Disneyland, including free-roaming, high-tech droids who delight fans with their silly antics.

This makes perfect sense, as droids have become an integral part of the Star Wars universe.

The newest entertainment doesn’t feature droids you’re likely familiar with. Instead, these little free-roaming cuties are BD-X droids who are set to make daily appearances at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park during Season of the Force starting Friday, April 5, through June 2. According to Scott Gustin on X, formerly Twitter, the droids will appear at various locations around Black Spire Outpost throughout the day.

Videos of these adorable additions to Disney World and Disneyland Resort have started to surface online, and guests are in love with the new droids of Galaxy’s Edge. Accompanied by a Cast Member, this unique experience is still being tested in a way as these interactive droids keep things fresh and new over at Disneyland Park and Hollywood Studios.

However, one user from Instagram and Facebook caught a very unusual behavior from these cute additions to entertainment on Batuu, one that was edited perfectly! User @wishuponmagic posted a short reel that shows the BD-X units “shakin’ what their Disney Research Imagineer gave ’em,” if you know what we mean!

The video shows the droids’ interactive behavior, which involves shaking. However, at first glance, it does look like these little park pals could be twerking, and it’s hilarious.

Of course, the function isn’t meant to be a sexualized dance, as joked by the fan-made video above, but it is quite funny none-the-less.

The presence of these droids at Galaxy’s Edge enhances the immersive experience and serves as a nod to the beloved droids from the Star Wars films. Whether encountering an astromech droid rolling by or a protocol droid engaging in conversation, guests are sure to feel like they are truly part of the Star Wars galaxy.
