If you have waited your whole life for a chance to officially join the Dark Side of the Force, this is your lucky day. Today, (May 24) Disneyland is recruiting Stormtroopers who won’t battle the Rebels, but will instead create “magical moments” for visitors within Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

As you would expect with such an elite force, the physical requirements are strict:

  • Height between 5″10 and 6 feet tall
  • Slender and athletic build
  • Ability to maintain high energy levels and physical exertion while wearing the Stormtrooper uniform (in the summer heat!)

Recruits must also be at least 18 years old and a high school graduate to enlist with the Disney Empire. Once cadets meet the basic requirements, they will be evaluated for their skills in “imaginative impersonation”. In other words: how deeply are you versed in all things Star Wars and Stormtrooper?

If you’re more excited about visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge than patrolling it, the wait is almost over. Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens next week on May 31, though you’ll need a reservation for any visits before June 23. If you missed the initial window for free public reservations, you can check for availability for an on-property hotel room as Disneyland hotel stays come with reservations included.

Stay tuned to TPG as we cover the Star Wars opening events at Disneyland next week!
