You could spend days in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disneyland’s brand-new theme park attraction, and you still wouldn’t be able to see all of its hidden secrets and surprises. Of course, that should be expected of an area built to resemble a historically dense media franchise like Star Wars. Before it was sold to Disney, creator George Lucas pretty much dedicated his entire life to filling out its many worlds with comic books, cartoons, and expanded novels; every character, no matter how small, had a story. Now, it seems like Disney has tipped its hat to Lucas’ contributions by referencing his next biggest franchise in an Easter Egg at Galaxy’s Edge.
ScreenRant recently attended the opening of the Disneyland attraction, spending ample time in the planet Batuu’s Black Spire Outpost, and specifically in Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities within. There, they made a shocking discovery, which you can see for yourself in the video above.

Did you spot it? According to the report, hidden amongst the crates of spice and old warrior garb, is the Ark the Covenant from the Indiana Jones series.
It’s a pretty neat Easter Egg for Star Wars fans and Indiana Jones fans alike, a Venn diagram that’s safe to say mostly overlaps. Who knows what lengths Dok-Ondar took to retrieve the biblical artifact, but it’s nice that fans can get a peek at it without traversing through hundred and hundreds of crates in some hidden warehouse.
In related news, it’s only fitting that Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford (who we all know also played Han Solo), made an appearance this weekend to christen the site upon its grand opening, dedicating it to the late Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew. Those lucky enough to gain early access spent hours scouring every nook and cranny of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, where you can build your own lightsaber, fly the Millennium Flacon, and drink a tall glass of blue Bantha Milk. For fans, it’s been a long time coming, but thankfully it sounds like it’s living up to the hype.
