VIDEO: Hondo Ohnaka Animatronic Breaks During Pre-Show Spiel at Millennium Falcon Smugglers Run in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Being the scourge of First Order ships must be exhausting because legendary pirate Hondo Ohnaka just Ohnaka-ed out mid sentence at “Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run” in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

In this video submitted to WDWNT by TheDisneyStranger, Hondo can be seen delivering the preshow spiel to riders. Just as he calls to Chewbacca, the animatronic goes limp and sinks backward as far as the framework will allow. The animatronic remains slumped for the remainder of the video as the audio plays on.

This ride has offered far more up-time than downtime, unlike its compatriot attraction “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance,” and as such a malfunction here-and-there can be understandable. We wish Hondo a speedy recovery.

  1. Do we know if there is a Genie+ MAX? You know an extra paid service on the app that will tell me what is and isn’t broken today on all the attractions…

  2. The animatronic was completely removed when I rode this on Monday. A video played in its place.

  3. And unfortunately, this is why Disney tries so hard to avoid adding animatronics to any new attraction. They require extended maintenance. Expensive.
