Neil Patrick Harris to Host a Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Special on Freeform

When you think of Star Wars, Neil Patrick Harris probably isn’t the first name that comes to mind. But he does possess an inherent charisma that has served him well as the host of several awards shows. Now, he’s about to bring his hosting talents to a galaxy far, far away. Deadline brings word that Harris will host an upcoming TV special that focuses on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

The special, titled Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Adventure Awaits, will air on Freeform and take fans inside the world of the new theme park. Viewers will tag along with Harris as he explores the Outer Rim planet of Batuu and its many enticing locales. Ever since it opened in May, Galaxy’s Edge has been a big draw for Disneyland’s Anaheim location. Disney World in Florida will open its own Galaxy’s Edge later this month.

Harris will also appear alongside a stacked assortment of celebrity guests throughout the two-hour special. Keegan-Michael Key will join Harris for a sit-down in Oga’s Cantina. Later on, Harris and Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland will learn about the conflict between the Resistance and the First Order. Hyland will also build her own droid at the park’s Droid Depot. Former Tonight Show host Jay Leno will check out Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, where he’ll presumably put his car expertise to good use. Plus, Harris and Kaley Cuoco (Harley Quinn) will get an early look at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which opens this winter.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Adventure Awaits will premiere on Sunday, September 29 at 8pm on Freeform. Will you be watching the special? Let us know in the comment section below!
